Provision of consultancy services for support in the purchase of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution and associated services for Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust.
Bids are invited for the provision of consultancy services for support in the purchase of an Electronic Medical Record (EMR) solution and associated services to meet the operational and clinical requirements of Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust and potentially Isle of Wight NHS Trust to which the IT and procurement departments provide services.
Bids should also include consideration of the possibility of wider use of the resulting EMR solution by other NHS Trusts in whole or in part, perhaps as a consequence of the NHS Future Operating Model, Sustainability and Transformation Plans or other initiatives on a local, regional or national level, or of wider use of the EMR solution contract by other Trusts in whole or in part.
The Trust requires that the successful Consultancy service brings resources and specific expertise and that it provides product specific specialism to the project team. Amongst other requirements as detailed in the ITT documentation the Consultancy must have:
— Demonstrable experience of a successful procurement project which in turn resulted in the successful implementation (whether or not you were involved in this stage) of an EMR solution, ideally at an NHS acute trust;
— Experience and familiarity with running procurement projects through an OJEU Competitive Dialogue procedure, a Competitive Procedure with Negotiation or other complex procurement processes;
— Knowledge and experience of different models of contracts for IT solution and transformation services, including those in which payments are linked either to delivery of product or of cash-releasing savings and the implications of these for the parties to the contracts.
The contract will remain in place subject to the completion of each 1 of the successive specified milestones, the final 1 of which ends with the successful award of contracts for an EMR solution and associated services, currently expected to be in September 2018.
The estimated value of this contract for the purpose of both this OJEU Contract Notice and the Trust's internal Business Case is 180 000 GBP excluding VAT. Bidders should note that this is not a target figure, however bids that are unaffordable may be excluded from the process.
The submission of the Bidder's offer will be subject to the NHS South of England Procurement Services' Conditions of Contract for the Supply of Consultancy Services included within the tender documents.
An OJEU Prior Information Notice for this opportunity was despatched on 7.12.2016, and published on 9.12.2016 under publication number 2016/S 238-433465.
