The Littlehampton Academy (TLA) and The Sir Robert Woodard Academy (SRWA) are 11-18 academies within the Woodard Academies Trust (WAT) group of academies. Both academies opened in 2009, having transferred from the West Sussex local authority, and both moved into brand new state-of-the-art buildings in 2012. Both academies are close to award-winning beaches on the south coast of England. The academies believe that success should be celebrated and that pupils should enjoy their time at school; if the classroom environment supports stimulating lessons then students will love learning. Much importance is therefore placed on the environment including the cleanliness of the academies to support the needs of all students.

TLA has places for 1 900 students including a thriving sixth form. As a Christian-designated academy, TLA provides a diverse culture enabling young people from all faiths and none to flourish.

TLA has outstanding teaching facilities set in 48 acres of landscaped grounds. The Academy has floor area of 14 256 m2.

The academy expects that the successful tenderer should evidence, through their bid, how they shall support and complement their values and support the principles of the academy.

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.
Please note that this is a market testing exercise to inform the organisations’ decision making process, not a call for competition. This does not commit the CCG to carry out a procurement process. Bidders who have expressed an interest in this market testing exercise will have to submit a separate response to the Contract Notice should we decide to procure this service and publish a Contract Notice (advert) for this requirement.
We are proposing a 3 year contract with 2 year extension commencing in early 2018. All dates stated are variable. The contract value range will be clarified following detailed scoping but is anticipated to be in the range of £100 - £200m over a three year period.
To confirm your participation in the market event on 11 April from 10:00am-12:30pm in Stratford, London, please reply to this email or telephone 0203 688 1543. Places are limited to two people per organisation.

Heat refers to any energy that is used, or might be used, for the purposes of heating or cooling in buildings, including cooking, providing hot water and in industrial processes. The Climate Change Act places a statutory obligation on the UK Government to make an 80% reduction in 1990 greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Achieving nearly zero carbon heating continues to be identified by government analysis as an important feature of any lowest cost pathway to 2050. Heat currently accounts for ~48% of UK energy consumption and approximately one third of our greenhouse gas emissions. On the 14th December 2016, Baroness Neville Rolfe gave a speech at the Policy Exchange's Heat Summit on heat decarbonisation. For more information see Baroness Neville Rolfe's keynote speech from the Policy Exchange event "The Heat Summit: How Can We Decarbonise Heating?" Description: Hybrid Heat Pumps project is looking to provide insight and new evidence on the extent to which Hybrid Heat Pumps could play a key role in long-term decarbonisation of heat. The objectives of the project are: • To understand the current in-situ performance of hybrid heat pumps; • To develop robust assumptions of performance and cost (capital and running) changes to 2050 in light of various scales of deployment and product innovation; • To assess potential for innovation to drive changes to hybrid heat pump technology through to 2050 and make HHPs an increasingly attractive consumer proposition (in particular when compared to standard electric heat pumps). For the purposes of this study, hybrid technologies are defined as systems combining an electric driven air or ground source heat pump with a gas boiler (including dedicated controls). Specific appliances under review should include split and integrated packaged systems as well as add-on solutions. The precise research questions that we are looking for the contractor to address are included in the ITT document attached. The contractors will be invited to propose a methodology which would best meet the overall aim and objectives above for approval by BEIS. The work is expected to include, but may not be limited to, the following methods: • Collation, analysis and comparison of relevant product and performance data; • Literature and previous studies review; • Industry consultation/expert interviews and opinion (expected to include product designers, manufacturers, installers, technical experts, trade bodies, researchers and academia); • Analysis, synthesis and modelling; • Documentation.
