The appointment of a Technology Partner and the establishment of an Alternative Service Delivery Model (“ASDM”) for ICT and Technology in Sunderland

Sunderland City Council | Published October 20, 2015  -  Deadline November 20, 2015
cpvs
43000000, 43190000, 43200000, 43210000, 43220000, 43230000, 45000000, 80000000

Sunderland City Council (‘the Authority’) is seeking to procure a Technology Partner to maximise opportunities from data and technology for both the Authority and the wider city. This builds on the Authority’s embedded approach of applying its assets alongside private sector investment and expertise.

 

Through this procurement, the Authority’s requirement is to secure delivery of key services, consolidate partnerships and create the conditions for innovation and growth that will help the city to prosper and thrive long into the future. This is an important step as the Authority evolves into an entirely different organisation by 2020.

 

The Authority’s five year savings requirement for 2015/2016 to 2019/2020 is anticipated to be in the region of £149m. The Authority continues to plan for these further significant reductions with the Authority’s focus firmly on Sunderland, the Community Leadership Council – sustaining public services by shifting from ‘doer’ to ‘facilitator’ and by creating new and innovative ways of delivering public services. What will remain really important to the Authority as a smaller, Community Leadership Council is commissioning services with a common commitment to public sector ethos and values for the benefit of the city and its residents.

 

The Authority sees three determinates to its future success – alternative models of public service delivery, a focus on commissioning for outcomes and a new capacity/capability for partnering and networking. It’s through the strength of the existing partnerships across the city that the great ambitions exist to radically change how resources from the public, private and voluntary and community sector are combined to create the best conditions for local people and local businesses to connect and succeed. Something that is expressed against three inter-connecting City Priorities:

 

  • Increasing economic growth and wealth within the city 

  • Establishing prime conditions for enterprise and investment in the city – typically through digital infrastructure, intelligence and the labour market

                & amp; amp; amp; amp;nbs p;                    

  • Improving the education and skills of local people so they are able to access opportunities  

  • Providing an environment to grow the right education and skills aligning schools, study, education, jobs and training – ensuring local people are better connected with the opportunities

     

  • Improving the health of local people so they can engage proactively within their communities and are able to take advantage of the opportunities    

  • Reducing the reliance on key health and social care based services by ensuring awareness, prevention and early intervention measures are delivering improved outcomes – enabling people to take responsibility for their own health and wellbeing

 

The Authority sees the appointment of a Technology Partner as an important and smart next step in realising these City Priorities, ensuring Sunderland thrives in the digital age and in recognition of the strategic importance of data and technology, both in the delivery and transformation of public services and in the economic and social development of the region.

There is a real renaissance currently underway in Sunderland, which is apparent in both the arts and local culture, as well as in the automotive, manufacturing and digital technologies arena. Greater levels of investment are being encouraged through a number of city-led initiatives to transform Sunderland, such as the recently announced 3,6,9 Vision and the Economic Masterplan for the city.

Over the coming years, Sunderland will need to invest in the right education and training to drive innovative businesses within the region, creating more jobs for individuals who have the skills to meet that demand.

It is in this context that the University of Sunderland has identified the development of its Advanced Manufacturing proposition as an area for strategic investment.

The development of a new Centre for Advanced Manufacturing on the St Peter's Riverside site has been identified as the key physical investment to realise this vision, with a GIFA of 6 500 m2 and construction budget of 14 000 000 GBP exclusive of VAT but inclusive of client fit-out. The floor area and budget are both subject to review during Stage 2 of the project development.

This project currently aims to complete in September 2018 subject to programme changes following the Stage 2 consultations, with a start on site in spring 2017, though the completion date may be put back to January 2019. This should be confirmed at the end of Stage 2.

The University of Sunderland seeks to appoint an experienced Structural Engineer to support the development of the New Centre for Advanced Manufacture.

Sunderland City Council (‘the Authority’) is seeking to appoint a Technology Partner and to establish with the Technology Partner an alternative service delivery model for ICT and Technology for both the Authority and the City of Sunderland (‘the City’) ( and potentially the wider North East region). A core objective of the project is to contribute to and/or promote the City's key priorities of improving economic growth and wealth, education and skills and health and well-being within the City (‘the City Priorities’) through the innovative use of technology and data. This opportunity comprises: (a) the award of a public contract by the Authority (‘the Partnering Agreement’) on behalf of the Authority and the contracting authorities listed in Group A in Section VI.3; and (b) the establishment of a framework agreement (‘the Framework Agreement’) on behalf of the Authority and the contracting authorities listed in Group A and Group B in Section VI.3, in each case to the Technology Partner. Please note that at Section II.1.3 it is not possible to select both a public contract and a framework and this Section II.1.5 explains the scope of both of these outputs under this procurement. It is anticipated that the Technology Partner shall provide through the proposed Partnering Agreement the following services and business cases described in paragraphs (i) to (iv) below: (i) the provision of ICT and related services (including (without limitation) technical and professional advice and support) to the Authority and the contracting authorities listed in Group A in Section VI.3; (ii) the full transformation of the Authority's ICT services to ensure they are scalable and on-demand, flexible and agile, consolidated, cost-effective and financially efficient and transparent in order to meet the future business needs and demands of the Authority and any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A in Section VI.3; (iii) the design, development and (where agreed) delivery of a pipeline of innovation business cases through the application of technology and data in collaboration with, and on behalf of, both the Authority and other contracting authorities listed under Group A and /or Group B in Section VI.3 in order to contribute to and/or promote the City Priorities and to establish a reusable and sustainable blueprint which recognises the integral people, process, technology and data components, unlocks the untapped potential of the City of Sunderland and its communities and harnesses the collective will of the Authority, the Eco-system Partners (as defined in the Partnering Agreement) and their assets, as further described in the Partnering Agreement (the ‘City Blueprint’); and (iv) the design and implementation of a model in order to establish a City Thought and Action Leadership Capability (‘CTALC’) to be hosted by the Authority which will facilitate collaboration between the Eco-system Partners in respect of technology and data and to oversee the design, approval and delivery of the innovative technology business cases and solutions in order to meet the City Priorities and the future requirements of the City (and potentially the wider North East region). Following implementation of the CTALC, the Technology Partner will provide ongoing professional advice and support to the CTALC function, including (without limitation) enterprise architecture and business analysis. It is anticipated that the Technology Partner shall provide by way of call off orders through the proposed Framework Agreement the following: (v) the potential provision of ICT and related services as described in paragraph (i) above and the transformed ICT services, as described in paragraph (ii) above by way of direct call off by a contracting authority listed in Group A in Section VI.3 (including for the avoidance of doubt any new entities that are created in the future as a result of the externalisation and ‘spin out’ of any part of the Authority's existing services and functions). It is envisaged that the specification and Technology Partner's solution in respect of both the ICT and related services and the transformed ICT services under the Partnering Agreement will also form a schedule to the Framework Agreement to facilitate these call-off orders; (vi) the potential provision from a catalogue of ICT related supplies and/or ICT related technical and professional advice and support (whether individually or as part of a package of supplies and services) by way of call off orders placed by any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A and/or Group B in Section VI.3; and (vii) the potential provision (by way of call off orders placed by any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A and/or Group B in Section VI.3) of the outputs and/or delivery of innovation business cases designed and developed by the Technology Partner as described in paragraph (iii) above.

It is anticipated that the Technology Partner shall provide through the proposed Partnering Agreement the following services and business cases described in paragraphs (i) to (iv) below: (i) the provision of ICT and related services (including (without limitation) technical and professional advice and support) to the Authority and the contracting authorities listed in Group A in Section VI.3; (ii) the full transformation of the Authority's ICT services to ensure they are scalable and on-demand, flexible and agile, consolidated, cost-effective and financially efficient and transparent in order to meet the future business needs and demands of the Authority and any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A in Section VI.3; (iii) the design, development and (where agreed) delivery of a pipeline of innovation business cases through the application of technology and data in collaboration with, and on behalf of, both the Authority and other contracting authorities listed under Group A and /or Group B in Section VI.3 in order to contribute to and/or promote the City Priorities and to establish a reusable and sustainable blueprint which recognises the integral people, process, technology and data components, unlocks the untapped potential of the City of Sunderland and its communities and harnesses the collective will of the Authority, the Eco-system Partners (as defined in the Partnering Agreement) and their assets, as further described in the Partnering Agreement (the ‘City Blueprint’); and (iv) the design and implementation of a model in order to establish a City Thought and Action Leadership Capability (‘CTALC’) to be hosted by the Authority which will facilitate collaboration between the Eco-system Partners in respect of technology and data and to oversee the design, approval and delivery of the innovative technology business cases and solutions in order to meet the City Priorities and the future requirements of the City (and potentially the wider North East region). Following implementation of the CTALC, the Technology Partner will provide ongoing professional advice and support to the CTALC function, including (without limitation) enterprise architecture and business analysis. It is anticipated that the Technology Partner shall provide by way of call off orders through the proposed Framework Agreement the following: (v) the potential provision of ICT and related services as described in paragraph (i) above and the transformed ICT services, as described in paragraph (ii) above by way of direct call off by a contracting authority listed in Group A in Section VI.3 (including for the avoidance of doubt any new entities that are created in the future as a result of the externalisation and ‘spin out’ of any part of the Authority's existing services and functions). It is envisaged that the specification and Technology Partner's solution in respect of both the ICT and related services and the transformed ICT services under the Partnering Agreement will also form a schedule to the Framework Agreement to facilitate these call-off orders; (vi) the potential provision from a catalogue of ICT related supplies and/or ICT related technical and professional advice and support (whether individually or as part of a package of supplies and services) by way of call off orders placed by any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A and/or Group B in Section VI.3; and (vii) the potential provision (by way of call off orders placed by any of the contracting authorities listed in Group A and/or Group B in Section VI.3) of the outputs and/or delivery of innovation business cases designed and developed by the Technology Partner as described in paragraph (iii) above. Further information regarding this opportunity is provided in the accompanying Memorandum of Information (MOI) which is referred to in section VI.3.
