The Board of the Pension Protection Fund are looking to procure data validation services for key data items relating primarily to member status and addresses. The intention is for these services to be made available to Trustees responsible for schemes in PPF assessment and Financial Assistance Scheme (FAS) wind up period and for these services to also support the maintenance of the data once the scheme has transferred to the PPF/ FAS. All interested suppliers need to contact the commercialservices@ppf.gsi.gov.uk inbox to request a copy of the Board's Non Disclosure Agreement (NDA) which will need to be signed, scanned and emailed back to the same inbox and only then will suppliers who have already registered themselves on the Bravo e-tendering system be invited to complete the Invitation to Tender (ITT). The Board's aim is to achieve a consistent and high standard of data quality to support the following: — Accurate payments of compensation and assistance; — Effective communication to our members; — Effective management of our key risks particularly those related to our funding strategy; — Compliance to industry / regulatory standards (tPR common data checks, the National Fraud Initiative and the DPA). Currently we ask a selection of third party providers to run regular exercises to ensure that we know the status of our members, where they are living and to support an effective annual valuation of our liabilities. These checks are procured by the Trustees for schemes in assessment and wind up and by the Board for the data which has already transferred to our systems. The Board also run a quarterly check against completion of tPR common data fields for the transferred book. We are now seeking to formalise these exercises by way of a tender and the award of longer term contracts. The tender includes 7 lots made up of 4 individual lots plus 3 combination lots. Bidders are encouraged to submit tender responses on 1 or more lots. The contract notice detail is designed to give a view on how the various data validation exercises are currently structured. The Board are looking for bidders to offer innovative solutions that will successfully deliver our requirements, but perhaps more importantly we are interested in exploring new ways of delivering the services while maximising value for money.

Following Royal Assent in February 2015, Land Registry will become the body responsible for providing a Local Land Charge service for England. Local Land Charges records, currently maintained by each individual Local Authority, are statutory, historic and fairly static, containing records of property charges which currently exist (e.g. tree preservation orders, listed building status). Currently, each of the 326 Local Authorities across England have their own processes for maintaining a register of the existence of the Local Land Charges that affect land and property within their jurisdiction. These ‘notice’ registers are made up of paper records, microfiche, digital records, or a hybrid of record types. This Prior Information Notice is to highlight to the market that to transition these records from the 326 Local Authorities, Land Registry intends over the next 12 months to be procuring services in two key areas: 1. Strategic Partner (Lot 1 in Annex B) will be procured through a single OJEU procurement, currently anticipated to be an Open procedure. The Strategic Partner will support Land Registry throughout the programme, bringing in capacity and capability across a range of important disciplines, including Programme management (including Delivery Milestones, overall delivery performance reporting and programme resourcing resilience), Supplier management, Procurement, Financial management, and the Provision of specialist LLC Advice and support with the LLC Full Business Case. They will work with Land Registry to initially procure, and then subsequently manage, the Digitisation and Import suppliers and to a lesser extent the LLC Register build supplier which will be procured under an existing framework. 2. Digitisation and Import (Lot 2 in Annex B) of existing LLC records from all Local Authorities (be they paper, microfiche, digital or hybrid) to the LLC Register and will consist of multiple contract lots which will be procured through an OJEU procedure. It is currently anticipated that this will be procurement through a Competitive Procedure with Negotiation process due to the greater complexity of the requirement and uncertainty over the scale of effort required. Suppliers will be able to bid for one or more lots consisting of Local Authorities. Note: This PIN is for information only not a call for competition which will issued in due course.

cpvs
45421100, 45421132, 45421130

The Contracting Authority (‘The Council') is seeking tenders from suitably qualified and experienced Service providers to enter into a single provider contract to provide window installations and associated works.

Further details, including the PQQ are provided within the Information Pack via the London tender portal (www.londontenders.org). Please note the provisions relating to electronic ordering invoicing and payments as set out within the ITT documents.

The scope of works is anticipated to be in the region of 20 000 000-25 000 000 GBP over 14 years, however there is no guarantee of any value of orders over the course of the Term Programme.

The length of the contract is initially for five (5) years with the option to extend for a further 3+3+1+1+1 years, resulting in a possible maximum contract period of fourteen (14) years.

The Council proposes to use the Restricted procedure for the purposes of procuring the contract and the tenders will be evaluated on the basis of achieving the most economically advantageous tender (MEAT) in the opinion of the Council.

The Council will be hosting a Bidder Briefing Event and this is provisionally scheduled for 31.5.2016. Attendance will be limited to three (3) delegates per applicant. We are keen to receive your confirmed attendance via the E-Tender portal, for the date/time indicated together with the names of your representative who will be attending by 12:00 on 26.5.2016. This event will provide you with an overview of the procurement process and the Council's requirements. There will be an opportunity to raise clarification questions. After the event, a copy of the presentation and the list of clarification questions raised will be uploaded via the E-Tender portal for transparency purposes. This event will take place at the following venue: Croydon Conference Centre, Surrey Street, Croydon. You must submit your completed PQQ and supporting documents via the E-Tender portal at www.londontenders.org no later than 10:00 20.6.2016. The completed PQQs may be submitted any time before the closing deadline.

It is also intended that the Contract be part of the Council's wider focus on ensuring that its economic activity is a catalyst for regeneration within the London Borough of Croydon so as to ensure Croydon as a place benefits from the expenditure related to the contract and changes people's lives for the better. The successful service provider will therefore be required to contribute to achieving these objectives and contract performance conditions may be imposed which relate to social value considerations, including supporting employment, creating apprenticeships, supporting priority groups, supporting business growth, supporting education to employment, supporting the community and governance. Further details are provided in the ITT documents.

The Council proposes to enter into a contract with the successful provider based on the ACA Standard form of Term Partnering Contract 2005 (amended 2008), as further amended by the Council (details of which are in the ITT).

The Council requires the successful Service Provider to comply with the London Living Wage.

All potential suppliers are advised to read the supporting documents listed on the E-Tender portal, prior to responding to the PQQ.

The Council considers that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006" as amended by the "Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment)(Amendment) Regulations 2014 may apply to this contract. The purpose of TUPE is to preserve continuity of employment and to safeguard employment rights of all employees whose employment transfers to a new employer as a result of a relevant transfer.

Potential suppliers can obtain a hard copy of the PQQ documents via the E-Portal, within the attachment information section (scroll down to bottom of page), to be downloaded (right click over the document and choose ‘save target as').
