The City of Aarhus calls for interested partners for a market dialogue and possible negotiations and conclusion of a PPI contract with one or more partners. The PPI project involves analysis and development of an innovative solution of a Multi modal Data platform (a data sharing platform) that supports both public/private collective transport providers (the operators of public transport, ride sharing services, taxi companies, car sharing service etc.) and citizens which use public/private transport. A part of the project is also to develop a testpilot of a Mobility Service. The overall aim of the project is to support collective transportforms in order to reduce pollution, CO2 emissions and solve congestion problems. The City of Aarhus reserves the right to select -amongst all interested partners - which partners the City of Aarhus will invite to the dialogue and negotiation process.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Cf. II.1.4 the City of Aarhus invites — in cooperation with Business Region Aarhus (a cooperation of 12municipalities in eastern Jutland — any interested company to inform the City of Aarhus of their qualifications and wish to enter the Mobility as a Service (MaaS) PPI. Interested companies can enter the partnership in order to develop the Multi modal Data platform and/or in order to be a Mobility Service provider, developing and making available mobility services to citizens based on the Multi model Data platform. 2 or more companies can also enter the partnership as cooperative partners/a consortium of partners.

The PPI is expected to result in a business model that shows how a mobility system should be designed to be sustainable, both economically and socially. The project is to involve development of a Mobility Service Pilot (the development of at least one mobility service). The City of Aarhus will — in close cooperation — with the private partner(s) carry out an innovation process to set up the Multi modal Data platform and the Mobility service Pilot. The Multi modal Data platform should be to able to gather all relevant mobility data from various transport providers. The platform has to ensure that data is accessible for other services and that data can be processed in the same way and thereby be comparable. The mobility project as a whole — and especially the development of the Mobility service Pilot should include a positive business case i for all relevant stakeholders. This means that the interested companies should demonstrate a business plan for the mobility system — as a whole — including a long-term finance plan that illustrates the cost of the system//cash flow within the system and e.g. savings in general or/and at the level of the users of the system. The business plan should include a cost/finance plan for the PPI-project and operation of the Multi modal Data platform in a pilot period (approximately a year — or throughout 2018).

Besides the demonstration of a business and financial plan — the interested partners will be selected on basis of their ability to demonstrate organizational innovation skills and project leading skills.

The aim of the project is to demonstrate a pilot for a national MaaS and is not expected to be followed by a tender of the developed solutions. The extent of the PPI project is not known yet but the City of Aarhus expects to contribute to the PPI in the form of in kind contributions and money covering certain expenses. It is the assessment that the PPI contract involves research and development services that are covered by article 14 in Directive 2014/24/EC and former in Directive 2004/18/EC and therefore the obligations in the Directive to complete a tender does not apply.

The process is expected to be as follows:

16.1.2018: Launch of Call for Expression of Interest.

16-31.1.2018: Expression of Interest to the Public Private Innovation Partnership.
