The York, North Yorkshire and East Riding Local Enterprise Partnership are creating an innovative business support referral service that will increase the take up of business support by stimulating market demand.
It will do this by building on established business relationships and enabling a wider variety of professionals to create a bespoke improvement and growth plan for clients, making referrals on to other providers as a matter of course.
To underpin this we require the development of a digital platform via an Agile approach and associated branding for the project.
The following represents the scope of business requirements for a survey and consultation data capture solution.
The business requirements can be summarised by the following functional areas:
The present infrastructure is based on CheckpointFirewall 1, which supports many core business applications and remote connections. The system is primarily based on Checkpoint Appliances with some management servers running on SecurePlatform.
The Council is committed to building strong communities and is increasingly moving towards a commissioning model of service delivery. For that reason we are seeking an experienced Consultant who will support staff groups with the development of initial business cases for the development of staff mutual organisations. It is important that the business cases ensure effective community focus, which could include options for inclusion of community representation within the ventures.
The Council is looking to move away from directly delivering some services. However it wishes to support the groups of staff delivering these services by commissioning an organisation to support them in developing an options appraisal to assess the market viability and employee commitment to establish employee ownership organisations / staff mutual.
The Council is looking to engage an organisation experienced at working with local authority staff groups, in the field of Health and Social Care, to undertake thorough options appraisals and deliver detailed business cases. The business cases must be sufficiently robust to demonstrate the commercial and constitutional viability of each venture and be used to access external funding to support the establishment of the new organisations.
There are two Projects initially which the Council is interested in commissioning this support for. The Council may commission further similar Projects included within the Agreement up to a maximum total value of £50,000 but there are no guarantees of any additional Projects.
