About UK Shared Business Services Putting the business into shared services UK Shared Business Services Ltd (UK SBS) brings a commercial attitude to the public sector; helping our customers improve efficiency, generate savings and modernise. It is our vision to become the leading provider for our customers of shared business services in the UK public sector, continuously reducing cost and improving quality of business services for Government and the public sector. Our broad range of expert services is shared by our customers. This allows our customers the freedom to focus resources on core activities; innovating and transforming their own organisations. Core services include Procurement, Finance, Grants Admissions, Human Resources, Payroll, ISS, and Property Asset Management all underpinned by our Service Delivery and Contact Centre teams. UK SBS is a people rather than task focused business. It’s what makes us different to the traditional transactional shared services centre. 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 2013/14. 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.

(UKSBS) on behalf of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) are considering procuring a range of business support services for primarily Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) in England, consisting of the following: A multichannel business support service through which businesses can access bespoke advice (this will include advice via telephone and digital channels including webchat, e-mail and social media, but not face-to-face support). A database ('Knowledge Bank') of business support schemes and advice in England to support service delivery, service delivery by partners, and content for online business support tools.

The service will aim in particular to cover gaps in business support provision, building on its reputation as a source of expertise for pre-starts and start-ups. The successful supplier will be encouraged to maximise the use of lower cost digital contact channels. The estimated value range for the requirement is in the region of £5m to £6m (exclusive of VAT) over 3 years. It is anticipated that this will be a 3 year agreement effective from 1st April 2019, with a potential option to extend on an annual basis for up to 2 further years subject to financial authority.

The Business Insights Panel (BIP) will make a broader, more representative range of UK businesses readily available to policy researchers at short notice and low-cost. The main objectives of this project include: • Improve the quality of policy making by providing ready access to a wide range of businesses; • Ensure a more transparent, inclusive approach in engagement with businesses; • Generate rapid early insight on specific policy issues in dynamic environment; • Reduce time and cost of robust ad-hoc business engagement and small-scale research; and • Manage request for evidence in a coordinated and streamlined way to maximise efficiency and to minimise the burden on businesses. We are looking to recruit a pre-profiled database of businesses varying by size, sector and regions that have consented to participate in periodic ad-hoc policy-related research. The data owner of the business contacts should be BEIS.

This is not a call for competition, relates to market engagement day.

Research Councils UK is the partnership of the UK's 7 Research Councils, which invest in research covering the full spectrum of academic disciplines.

As of 04/18, the RCUK will be brought together under a new umbrella organisation, UK Research and Innovation, along with Innovate UK and Research England. These 9 councils will operate within their distinct remits whilst being under UKRI.

The cross-Council networks for Public Affairs and for Consultations and Inquiries are seeking a future provider of parliamentary and political monitoring services, because the set of contracts with our current provider expires at the end of 05/18. The future contract is likely to be combined across multiple councils within UKRI; it will be at the discretion of individual councils whether or not to join this. The services would therefore need to accommodate both the central monitoring needs of UKRI and the different requirements.

BEIS Vision is 'An economy that works for everyone - so that there are great places in every part of the UK for people to work and for businesses to invest, innovate and grow' To support the delivery of this Vision Regulatory Delivery has the objective of 'Making Regulation work for British business - businesses are enabled to innovate, explore and grow, people and places are properly protected'. The way in which regulation is delivered will have an impact on the compliance approach of a business and will influence any future relationship the business has with the regulatory body. Regulation which is delivered in a supportive manner, by Regulators who understand the needs of business, will have the biggest impact on business compliance and be least burdensome to business. Compliant businesses are more competitive and will contribute most to achieving the BEIS vision. An insights approach by regulators may assist in delivering regulation in a more supportive and focused manner whilst ensuring citizens, communities, workers and the environment are properly protected from harm. Regulatory Delivery (RD) work with Regulatory bodies to improve the way in which Regulation is delivered. Since April 2016, NMRO (National Measurement Regulation Office) and BRDO (Better Regulation Delivery Office) have come together to form RD. As a result RD is now responsible also for enforcing 12 areas of regulation on behalf of BEIS and DEFRA. RD has the ambition of being an exemplar regulator and as such wants to develop approaches to regulatory delivery that consider the impact of behavioural insights on business compliance. The aims of the project are to: • Provide data on compliance for the regulations that Regulatory Delivery is responsible for enforcing. • Collate the approaches and systems used to assess compliance and enforce against these regulations • Gather information on what approach and activities ( interventions) the enforcement officers feel works best in achieving compliance • Inform a future piece of work on developing generalisable insights for business compliance.
