The Vale of Glamorgan Council is in the process of changing the way it delivers Housing Related Support Services under the Supporting People Programme.
From 7.12.2015, The Vale of Glamorgan Council will utilise a Preferred Provider List via the E-Tender Wales procurement portal in order to award contracts for Housing Related Support Services.
The Preferred Provider List will provide SPRG funded housing related support services to vulnerable client groups and will include the provision of floating support, supported housing, refuge and direct access accommodation.
The current contractual arrangement supports in excess of 2 500 citizens within the authority. It is anticipated that the number of citizens may increase/ decrease and therefore no guarantee can be given with regard to the volume of services required.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council therefore, seeks to appoint a number of Supporting People provider organisations to deliver Housing Related Support Services under the Supporting People Programme.
The Council proposes to enrol no more than 6 providers to each of the following preferred provider lists.
1) Women at Risk of Domestic Abuse.
2) Men at Risk of Domestic Abuse.
3) People with Learning Disabilities.
4) People with mental Health Issues.
5) People with Substance Issues (Alcohol).
6) People with Substance Misuse Issues (Drugs and Volatile substances).
7) People with Criminal Offending History.
8) People with Refugee Status.
9) People with Physical and / or Sensory Disabilities.
10) People with Developmental Disorders (i.e. Autism).
11) People with Chronic Illnesses (including HIV/AIDS).
12) Young People who are Care Leavers.
13) Young People with Support Needs (16-24).
14) Single Parent Families with Support Needs.
15) Families with Support Needs.
16) Single People with support Needs (25-55).
17) People over 55 years of age (with Support Needs).
18) Generic Floating support to prevent homelessness.
19) Alarm Services.
It is anticipated that the Preferred Provider List will commence on 7.12.2015 and will run for a fixed term of 5 years, providing that the contract does not extend beyond 2020. Please note that this Agreement is reliant upon grant funding being made available to the Vale of Glamorgan Council on an annual basis by the Welsh Government.
The Vale of Glamorgan Council welcomes bids from all organisations, including consortia, lead contractor organisations and sole tenderers.
As part of the procurement process, The Vale Of Glamorgan Council would like to invite interested organisations to attend a bidder's forum regarding the opportunity. The Council will host a session in partnership with Business Wales, taking place on 1 pm on the 21st October Copthorne Hotel, Culverhouse Cross October 2015. Further details of the sessions will be provided prior to the event.
It is intended that the sessions will be used to provide an overview of the proposed model and client base, the tender process and the management of the APL, a summary of the nature of the services required and will also address any questions that suppliers may have regarding the procurement process. The forum will also be used as an opportunity for Business Wales to provide support and assistance to potential suppliers to complete the necessary PQQ application documents.
The forum will be attended by representatives from the Housing Directorate, Commissioning and Procurement and Business Wales.
The Council is undertaking a two stage process where a pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) will be used (Selection Stage) to enrol no more than 6 providers on to each Approved Provider List.
The Council will evaluate the provider organisations ability to meet minimum selected criteria, such as but not limited to insurance levels, economic and financial standing, capacity and capability and past experience.
Bidders should note that the closing date for submissions is 2.11.2015 at 12:00 hours and a threshold pass mark of 60 % will be applied at the PQQ selection stage.
