Dear healthcare provider, Newham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) is planning to transform the way that community health services in Newham are delivered. Community Health Services (CHS) in the borough will be taken through a re-procurement process. As part of this, we are looking to develop a new model of care for our local health care services that is best suited to the future needs of local people. As a provider of community services, we would like to invite you to our market engagement event on 11 April in Stratford, London. We are keen to engage with providers who can work in a partnership approach and support the delivery of outcomes based community health services that can transform the lives of Newham residents. We are seeking providers who have an ambition to transform services and can bring added value to the borough’s health and social care economy. The market engagement event will present further details of the proposed clinical model, the case for change, procurement timeline, and contracting model for an outcomes based contract. We also want to hear from providers about their views on our approach and issues that we may need to take into consideration for both the procurement process and delivery of services. This will be in the form of a workshop after a presentation on the vision and model of care. The invite is open to any providers who have an interest in community health services and/or are currently in community health services related business. As a provider of care, this represents a unique and early opportunity to share innovation and practices centred around the patient to deliver the outcomes that matter most to patients. The event also provides an opportunity for providers to meet one another and network.

The HR and Finance transactional services of the Research Councils are currently delivered by UK SBS. They are currently using a system which is due to end in May 2018.
Innovate UK's HR and Finance transactional services are run in-house and their payroll is outsourced to a third party.
The Research Councils and Innovate UK are due to merge to form a single group called UKRI (UK Research and Innovation).
The primary requirement and focus of the specification is to replace these systems with a single platform that is scalable and relevant to an organisation of this size and complexity. Further to this the requirement is for the Supplier to supply the system integration services to support the roll out of the product into the organisation.
The initial requirement is based on 7,750 users/ licences for which the requirement is both the supply of the single platform / system and the system integration services to implement this across an initial population of approximately 7,750 users / licences. There is potential during the term of the contract for the expansion of the digital services by up to 100 % through the onboarding of users from other partner organisations into this new single platform. The expanded scope would only be for software provision (licences) and not the provision of system integration services.
The initial scope is for the delivery of the new digital services for the following nine partner organisations:
— Innovate UK
— UK Shared Business Services (UK SBS)
— Research Councils UK (RCUK) consisting of:
1) Arts and Humanities Research Council — AHRC
2) Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council — BBSRC
3) Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council — EPSRC
4) Economic and Social Research Council — ESRC
5) Medical Research Council — MRC
6) Natural Environment Research Council — NERC
7) Science and Technology Facilities Council — STFC
Note: The estimated value range included in the OJEU notice (8 000 000 GBP to 23 000 000 GBP) is inclusive of an estimate for the options of extension and additional users. The base requirement of software and system implementation for 7 750 users over 3 years is estimated to be below 9 000 000 GBP. The additional options would be subject to additional spend approvals.
The Home Office is seeking to change its approach to the provision of core IT and telephony services, including but not limited to end user devices, core enterprise computing stack, service management and support, ongoing maintenance, in line with the expiry of its existing service contract. The End User Compute (EUC) Programme is one aspect of this strategic change, which aims to meet the Home Office's core requirements for reliable, flexible and modern IT for end users.
The EUC Programme will put in place an all-encompassing set of IT capabilities and services by transitioning the Home Office to a disaggregated end user compute infrastructure. The EUC Programme is expected to award several service contracts in 2016 and 2017, to facilitate the transition of service delivery from the existing service contract. The procurement of Office 365 (O365) Implementation Services is 1 of these EUC components of this multi-supplier delivery environment.
The Home Office requires a cloud-based productivity suite for all end users, including productivity applications, collaborative functions and end user storage for Windows laptops, Windows tablets, mobile devices, thick client user devices, thin client End User Devices (EUDs) and potentially other types of EUDs. The platform selected by the Home Office is Microsoft's O365. The Home Office intends to purchase separately a suitable mix of Microsoft O365 E1, E3 and E5 licences to provide a range of capabilities, such as Skype for Business.
The O365 Implementation Services contract will require the supplier to design, build, configure, test and implement the O365 Solution, as well as transition from the existing Office productivity suite and provide early life support, in line with the Home Office's requirements. The transition includes ensuring the delivery of the migration of users and Exchange data from the legacy capability to the new O365 solution, including mailboxes, archives and email domains.
