'Good response' to charging infra fund

The Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) has received a healthy response to its request for proposals for its Charging Infrastructure Investment Fund (CIIF).

Partnerships Bulletin understands that there has been a good level of response to the RFP for the fund, consistent with the response levels seen for its Digital Infrastructure Investment Fund (DIIF), which the Treasury considered to be a success.

The deadline for receipt of proposals for the CIIF was 21 September, with the IPA now working through the proposals with the aim of choosing a preferred bidder later this year.

Under the plans, the IPA is seeking a private sector manager to run the £400m CIIF, which is designed to catalyse the market for developing and installing electric vehicles.
