The Corporate Officer of the House of Lords and the Corporate Officer of the House of Commons (the Authority), invite you to submit a tender for the services as detailed in this Invitation to Tender (ITT) and the various requirements documents.

The Houses of Parliament is looking to award a new contract on behalf of the House of Lords Catering and Retail Service and the House Commons Catering Service for a Bicameral Stock Control and Purchasing System. This is to meet the corporate objective of both Houses of Parliament for providing value for money in the delivery of their catering services, through effective and efficient inventory management. Each House is a legal entity in its own right and outlets are owned by one or the other House, not jointly.

Revenue for both House of Commons' and House of Lords' operations is forecast to be over 13 000 000 GBP in the financial year 2016/17, with total annual covers/transactions estimated at over 1 500 000. In total, the 2 organisations employ around 400 staff. The stock control and purchasing system will be expected to serve the operational requirements of over 30 venues within 5 separate sites across the Parliamentary Estate, including the Palace of Westminster. There is currently no common stock management and purchasing system, and the Houses of Parliament is therefore seeking a solution that serves the catering departments in both Houses. Any solution should provide integration with the current EPOS and financial systems. Currently the catering department in the House of Commons uses Check SCM 3.5 as a Stock Management tool for stock control and purchasing. The House of Lords catering department does not have any Stock Management system for managing food and all processes are manual using spreadsheets. Beverages and souvenirs are managed using Micros Material control.

— Each House has its own finance system (Agresso) using different cost centre and General Ledger code structures.

— We are seeking a solution that can integrate with the existing EPOS and Events Management systems as well as interfacing with each houses finance system.

— We are seeking a system that will support both catering departments. In view of the above arrangements, the Houses of Parliament is flexible regarding your proposal; whether this is through 2 instances of the same system with the ability to be merged at a later stage, or 1 system to be used by both organisations.

The Authority is seeking a commercial ‘off-the shelf’ (COTS) solution; a bespoke solution would not meet the Houses of Parliament's ICT strategic goals. Any added development required to meet the requirements in the ITT should be offered as part of the standard product release; please see the tender documents for further details.

cpvs
98000000

The Home Office is seeking to award grant funding to non-statutory sector organisations in England and Wales working across a large geographical area to provide support to victims and survivors of child sexual abuse (SVSCSA). This follows the success of the SVSSA fund administered during 2016/17 financial year. For 2017/2018, £4.7m has been provided proportionally to all 43 Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) to administer to local provision for supporting victims. We know that this funding stream will not be suitable for some organisations that work with victims and survivors across a wider geographic area, and therefore may find it difficult to bid successfully to Police and Crime Commissioners. Therefore, we have withheld £600k specifically to allow for voluntary organisations to submit a proposal for this purpose for 2017/2018, and if successful, they will be allocated funding centrally via a Grant Agreement from the Home Office. All bids must be for one year only, and bidders must be able to demonstrate the ability to spend their entire potential award by the end of the 2017/18 financial year. Organisations wishing to apply must operate over a large geographic area, which must, as a minimum, be 3 PCC areas. While there will not be a formal cap placed on the amount an organisation can bid for, we expect all bids to be scalable. More details about scalability will be made available in the published documents. The process leading to the award of the grant will be administered using Crown Commercial Services eSourcing portal. To take part in this grant funding opportunity please see the notice below which provides important instructions for registration on the portal. Please read all information in this notice carefully. Please also find attached guidance for using the eSourcing portal. For questions or problems regarding registration please email SVSSA@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk

This notice invites interested parties to apply for a Passport to operate passenger railways in England and Wales. Rail Executive — Passenger Services is operating a Passport System as part of the pre-qualification process for rail franchise competitions. Passenger Services currently intends that the Passport System will be valid for 4 years, but Passenger Services reserves the right to reduce or extend the validity period of the Passport System, subject to publication of a further notice to that effect. For each rail franchise competition, the Passport System will replace the current separate, franchise specific pre-qualification questionnaire. Any organisation that wishes to participate in any rail franchise competition must have applied for a Passport on or before the set application date for that competition outlined in this notice (Application Date). The Application Dates may be revised from time to time in further notices published by Passenger Services. This notice is a call for competition for each of the rail franchise competitions listed below and Passenger Services does not currently intend to publish a separate contract notice for any of those competitions. Instead, Passenger Services intends to publish an updated qualification system notice as and when considered appropriate. Passenger Services has published a Rail Franchising Prior Information Notice (PIN). This includes the full rail franchising schedule, details of Direct Awards, and additional information regarding the aims of the rail franchising programme. Interested economic operators should familiarise themselves with the contents of the PIN which can be found on the gov.uk website. Passport applications will cover: organisation and contact details; grounds for mandatory rejection; grounds for discretionary rejection (including past performance); capability and technical ability; and health and safety management and culture. For each specific rail franchise competition Passenger Services will, at a later stage, require Passport Holders that express an interest to respond to an additional set of pre-qualification questions that is specifically tailored to that franchise (the Franchise EoI). This will include questions in respect of economic and financial standing. The Franchise EoI may also include further questions in respect of capability and technical ability, although Passenger Services reserves the right not to require Passport Holders to complete these. Passport Holders may be down-selected on the basis of the scoring of the further capability and technical ability questions in order to generate a shortlist of bidders for the competition. Full details of the Passport System are set out in the Passport PQQ Pack, which includes the Passport pre-qualification questionnaire and the Passport Process Document. Details of how to gain access to the franchising procurement e-sourcing portal and obtain the Passport PQQ Pack are set out in Section VI.2 of this notice. Additional information relating to the South Western, West Midlands, and Intercity West Coast competitions will be available on the portal given the proximity of the Application Dates for these competitions. However, Passenger Services does not commit to adopting the same approach in relation to the disclosure of equivalent additional information in relation to any subsequent competition. Information relating to the Passport System and franchise competitions generally, will be published on the gov.uk website. Please note that the franchising procurement e-sourcing portal will always contain the most up-to-date information relating to the Passport System and franchise competitions.

Tower Hamlets CCG is issuing this tender on behalf of 7 named CCGs, to commission the East London Health Care Partnership, Integrated Urgent Care (ELHCP IUC), 111 and Clinical Assessment Service (CAS), creating a multi-skilled CAS with a range of clinicians supporting telephone, triage, assessment and treatment for both patients and Health Care Professionals (HCPs).

The enhanced CAS will include a range of multi-skilled clinicians across the 24/7 period including: 24/7 general practitioner(s), paramedics, pharmacist, advanced nurse practitioner, community specialists.

The anticipated value range over the 5 year contract period is 45 200 000 GBP up to a maximum of 48 300 000 GBP, with a 2-year option to extend. Bids above the maximum will be given 0 marks.

The overall total contract price will be split across the 5 years, made up of core payments and quality KPI incentives. 2.5 % of the total bid price includes incentive financial quality KPI incentives outlined in Annex A.

The East London Health Care Partnership (ELHCP) procurement strategy is to let one contract, through a lead provider arrangement, to provide an Integrated Urgent Care Telephone Clinical Assessment Service and promote NHS111 as the ‘smart call to make’ creating a 24-hour personalised priority contact point.

The CAS will enable patients to receive fast efficient clinical advice, with increased consult and complete calls with improved onward referral pathways, reducing the number of steps in key pathways, delivering the following key principles below and outcomes identified in the service specification.

—- bringing together phone triage which is currently carried out separately by NHS111 and Out of Hours services;

—- increase confidence and trust for users and other stakeholders in this new service;

—- the first point of access for urgent care, reducing demand on Emergency Departments (ED) and 999;

—- deliver equity and consistency in response across ELHCP footprint;

—- support increased self-care and the principle that every contact should count;

—- encourage and support use of existing day time GP services where possible;

—- supporting local health-care professionals — so that no decision needs to be taken in isolation;

—- improved access will in turn increase the number of patients managed at home and reduce the number of conveyances to ED through clinical advice, direct booking, and referral to visiting teams where required via the Directory of Services (DoS).

The services are covered by the Light Touch Regime are set out at Schedule 3 (Social and Other Specific Services) of PCR 2015. If the value of the Contract is over 589 148 GBP the Contracting Authority must advertise it in the OJEU, although there is flexibility as to the design of the remainder of the Procurement Process The Commissioner is not voluntarily following any other part of the Regulations. The procedure that the Commissioner is following is as set out in the Invitation to Tender. The Process will be similar to Open Procedure process under the Regulations but, for avoidance of doubt, the commissioner is not running the Process as though the Open Procedure under the Regulations applies and so reserves the right to depart from that procedure at any point. The procurement will be advertised via OJEU and Contract Finder.

The contracting authority is currently charged VAT for the existing NHS 111 service in line with present HMRC guidance, which it is able to recover. The bid price quoted for the new Integrated Urgent Care Service assumes that VAT will continue to have a net zero effect on the cost of the service to the contracting authority. Bidder submissions should include the advice that has been sought on the treatment of VAT and an explanation on how bidders intend to maintain the net zero effect to the contracting authority within the bid price for the length of the contract We would also like to take this opportunity to advise that a Bidders Event will be held on 2nd May between 14:00 and 17:00 in Stratford. Expressions of interests will be completed on submission of the Tender. The deadline for submitting a completed Tender is at 12:00 on 12.6.2017. Responses received after the deadline will not be considered. It is anticipated that bidders will be invited to an Objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) assessment meeting if they are successful at the pass/fail stage.
