The West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) has alerted the transport modelling and data communities to an upcoming procurement for a new transport model.
It wants to procure a multi-resolution modelling suite, creating “scalable forecasting models at a micro-meso-macro and strategic level that enable users to switch from strategic to meso to micro models (or levels of modelling within one large model)”.
WMCA will procure:
Procurement will commence in the New Year.
Separately, the WMCA has begun the procurement of a contract to apply, maintain and enhance the existing PRISM model from 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2024.
WMCA says some of the new modelling capability “could supersede parts of the modelling functions offered by PRISM”. “However, we expect to continue using PRISM for the whole of this services framework period.”
