The Council is seeking providers to deliver the Kent and Medway South East Business Boost Programme Delivery services. The South East Local Enterprise Partnership (SELEP) is a business-led, public & private sector body established to drive economic growth across East Sussex, Essex, Kent, Medway, Southend and Thurrock. The core growth hub service is to be extended through a SELEP-wide South East Business Boost (SEBB), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programme. The current core offer is primarily an online facility with some limited support. The SEBB programme will enable growth hubs to expand existing provision to offer: a greater level of 1:2:1 and 1:2:many interactions that create growth and innovation within companies, delivered to an wider target audience including: pre-start, start-up and Small and Medium Sized Enterprises. This process will be enhanced by the 'Growth Grant' programme to facilitate growth and increase productivity. The LEP is one of 39 partnerships across England set up by the government to be the key body determining strategic economic priorities while making investments and delivering activities to drive growth and create local jobs. As well as being the biggest LEP outside of London, SELEP is also one of the most local. The LEP operates a fully devolved model with increased reach into local communities through local delivery partnerships in East Sussex, Kent & Medway, Essex and Thames Gateway South Essex. The core growth hub service is to be extended through a SELEP-wide South East Business Boost (SEBB), European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) programme. This requirement is designed to achieve the extended service. The service will provide additional activities beyond what can be provided currently. Both core growth hub and the Kent & Medway SEBB Programme will be delivered as separate projects with distinct outputs etc. They have been designed to operate autonomously and if the funding for the core hub is ceased the Kent & Medway SEBB Programme will not be expected to pick up the activities, but instead continue operating unhindered. Kent & Medway SEBB Programme will be funded via an ERDF grant. Whilst the services need to work closely together, it will be possible at any time to identify the activity funded through ERDF funds and the activity funded by others.This opportunity has been developed by gathering evidence of the gaps in support provision through public and private sector partnership engagement. The Kent & Medway South East Business Boost Programme Delivery services will be fully integrated alongside their respective Core Growth Hub Services and will be governed by the same principles.

What is more, being a not-for-profit organisation owned by its customers, UK SBS’ goals are aligned with the public sector and delivering best value for the UK taxpayer. UK Shared Business Services Ltd changed its name from RCUK Shared Services Centre Ltd in March 2013. Our Customers Growing from a foundation of supporting the Research Councils, 2012/13 saw Business Innovation and Skills (BIS) transition their procurement to UK SBS and Crown Commercial Service (CSS - previously Government Procurement Service) agree a Memorandum of Understanding with UK SBS to deliver two major procurement categories (construction and research) across Government. UK SBS currently manages £700m expenditure for its Customers, our growth projections anticipate this will rise to £1bn in 2014/15. Important information From the 2nd April 2014 the Government is introducing its new Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS). A key aspect of this is the reduction in the number of security classifications used. All potential suppliers should make themselves aware of the changes as it may impact on this Requirement.The Gov.uk website provides information on the new GSC.

This procurement seeks to implement a solution that delivers a consistent approach to recording risk data and sharing of people and premises based information to provide a more coordinated service to our customers across our prevention and protection services.

Kent and Medway Towns Fire Authority provide prevention and protection services to the population of Kent which includes the following elements:

— Community Safety;

— Technical Fire Safety;

— Operational Planning;

— Operational Response.

Each area collects, as part of their day to day work, a variety of information that could be useful to crews attending an incident. Currently not all this information is available in a format that is quick and easy for them to access. Business areas are supported by a number of different systems. There is no consistent way to record risk data and the sharing of premises and people based information to provide a more coordinated service to our customers is difficult. All systems are currently hosted and supported in-house.

This Prior Information Notice is to inform the market that Kent and Medway Towns Fire Authority are planning to undertake a procurement process to implement a solution that will meet the following aims of the project:

— Agree a core set of risk data across all the business areas which can be delivered to operational crews called out to an incident.

— Improve the sharing of data across business areas to give a more complete picture of all our interactions with customers and the buildings in the County.

— Simplify some of the overly complex procedures being used in some business areas.

— Implement mobile working to improve the collection and input of business data.

— Improve the relevance, accuracy and usefulness of the data collected and used in all the business areas.

— Improve the resilience of our development and support capability via a third party hosted solution, which also provides expertise to help evolve the solution moving forwards.

The Authority plans to hold a supplier engagement event to present a more detailed overview of our project aims and objectives and to seek industry expertise and feedback. The event is scheduled to take place on the 17.11.2017. Full details of the event and all associated communications shall be managed using the Kent Business Portal and any interested suppliers are encouraged to register on the Portal to ensure that they are notified of any updates.

Kent County Council is tendering for a multi-supplier framework that HR training and development team can use to access training providers to deliver training services to KCC when required on a ‘call off' basis, by undertaking mini-competitions once the framework has been let. Part of the role of the training and development team at KCC is to commission training and development for the whole of KCC, this role has led to the creation of this Training Framework so that HR Training and Development are able to meet the training needs of all staff at KCC. Within the last year, training and development teams within KCC were restructured bringing together both corporate and social care development. Added to this there are a number of contracts currently in place which we used to commission training across KCC. However these are now coming to end and as part of the new ways of doing things within KCC, we are now joining together to tender for one framework. This coincides with a time when KCC are undergoing its biggest change ever, and one of the key changes is the way we do things. We now have a Workforce Development Strategy across the whole of KCC , it's key objective to develop a workforce that is flexible and adaptable to change, and has the skills and capabilities to deliver effective services for the public and service users through increased service integration and delivery of transformation programmes. In order that we achieve this, we need to ensure that we commission quality, value for money that supports business need. The training framework will deliver a platform for KCC to provide the relevant training and development for all staff. The framework will cover all areas across KCC including but not limited to IT, HR, Finance and Procurement, and Social Care. The framework will be for a period of four years. The framework will be split into 154 Lots and suppliers will have the opportunity to tender for one or more of these Lots. Further information can be found in the Invitation to Tender documentation, which is available via the Kent Business Portal www.kentbusinessportal.org.uk If you are a supplier who is interested in joining the framework, please submit an expression of interest, download the Invitation to Tender documentation and submit your completed tender response via the Kent Business Portal no later than noon on Monday 9.6.2014.
