The council wishes to purchase day services which are accessible to older people and adults with a physical disability from across Kirklees. The aim of the service is to reduce isolation and loneliness, promote healthy and active lifestyles, maximise independence and wellbeing among older people and adults with physical disabilities. The service is also to provide respite for their carers.

The Contract will commence 1.4.2018 until 31.3.2020, with the option to extend for a further period, or for successive periods, up to 31.3.2023.

Tenders are invited by Kirklees Council from Providers with the relevant experience and ability to demonstrate sufficient capacity for the provision of day services for older people and adults with physical disability.

There will be a maximum of four Contracts awarded for the delivery of Day Services under this Tender. Up to 2 Contracts will be awarded for the North Kirklees Lot and up to 2 Contracts awarded for the South Kirklees Lot. Tenderers can apply for one or both Lots, and may be awarded Contracts for 1 or both Lots. Tenderers should indicate in the Supplier Submission Document which Lot(s) they are applying for.

It is anticipated that the Contract is to commence on the 1.4.2018 and will expire on 31.3.2020, with an option to extend for a further period, or for successive periods, up to 31.3.2023.

Based on historical allocated placement figures, for 2015/16 and 2016/17 financial years respectively, approximately 40 % of placements were in North Kirklees (Lot 1) and 60 % of placements were in South Kirklees (Lot 2). The maximum budget available for this service is 710 672 GBP per annum for both North and South Kirklees Lots.

Over the next 4 years, the University will be carrying out a number of construction projects on its campus.

NHS Bradford City CCG and NHS Bradford Districts CCG - Stroke Information and Support Service

eMBED Health Consortium | Published August 12, 2016  -  Deadline September 12, 2016
cpvs
85000000

The aim of the service will be to provide a seamless service which integrates with the acute stroke provider to promote the recovery, independence and well-being of people who have had a stroke and their carers, and ensure they are sufficiently informed to make choices regarding their health and social care needs. Service users and their carers will be supported and given the tools to self-manage their condition where appropriate, and feel more in control of their life. The National Stroke Strategy (Department of Health; Dec 2007) presented key evidence and set out what was required to develop effective stroke services in England. The Strategy identified key stages in the pathway for example: • People who have had a stroke, their relatives and carers have access to practical advice, emotional support, advocacy and information throughout the care pathway • A range of services are in place and easily accessible to support the individual long term needs of individuals and their carers • People who have had strokes and their carers either living at home or in care homes are offered a review from primary care of their health and social care status and secondary prevention needs typically within six weeks of discharge home or to care home and again before six months after leaving hospital • People who have had a stroke and their carers are enabled to a full life in the community • People who have had a stroke and their carers are enabled to participate in paid, supported and voluntary employment • All people with stroke and at risk of stroke receive care from staff with the skills, competence and experience appropriate to meet their needs Each year around 150,000 people in the UK have a stroke and approximately 53,000 people die from the disease. Half of all stroke survivors are left with long-term disability and live with a range of physical, emotional, communication and cognitive issues. The impact that this has on the stroke survivor and the family unit is often devastating and affects the financial status and relationships within that unit. Latest figures suggest that over 520 were admitted to Bradford Hospitals with stroke in 2015/2016. Although some of these people will sadly die within a month of having a stroke, some will move to live with family and some people will decline a service from a provider, we estimate that around 75% of stroke survivors per year might benefit through receiving support in one way or another from the provider. Patients and their carers report that following a stroke, when they are discharged home, they feel isolated, lonely and vulnerable. As a result of this, they further add that they are more likely to ring for out of hours services and seek support from primary care. The National Stroke Strategy (2007) emphasizes the importance of post hospital care for those recovering from stroke, and highlights six month reviews should be undertaken as part of this as good practice.

III.1.2) Economic and financial standing List and brief description of selection criteria: Finance See Section 4 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Economic operators must submit either a copy of the audited accounts for the most recent two (2) years if requested. If it cannot, then it must provide either: a) a statement of the turnover, Profit and Loss Account/ Income Statement, Balance Sheet/ Statement of Financial Position and Statement of Cash Flow for the most recent year of trading for this organisation; b) a statement of the cash flow forecast for the current year and a bank letter outlining the current cash and credit position; or c) alternative means of demonstrating financial status if any of the above are not available (e.g. forecast of turnover for the current year and a statement of funding provided by the owners and/or the bank, charity accruals accounts or an alternative means of demonstrating financial status). Economic operators must also confirm whether or not they are part of a wider group (e.g. a subsidiary of a holding/parent company), and if so must provide confirmation of: a) the name of the organisation; b) the relationship to the economic operator completing the SQ; the organisation's company accounts (if available); and confirmation on whether or not this organisation would be willing to provide a guarantee if necessary, and if not would the economic operator be able to obtain a guarantee elsewhere (e.g. from a bank). Insurance See Section 8.1 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Economic operators are asked to self-certify whether they already have, or can commit to obtain, prior to the commencement date of the Contract, the levels of insurance cover indicated below: a) Employer's (Compulsory) Liability Insurance 10 000 000 GBP (in relation to any 1 claim or series of claims); b) Public Liability Insurance 10 000 000 GBP (in relation to any 1 claim or series of claims); c) Professional Indemnity Insurance 500 000 GBP (in relation to any 1 claim or series of claims); and d) Product Liability Insurance 10 000 000 GBP (in relation to any 1 claim or series of claims). Minimum level(s) of standards required: Minimum level(s) of standards possibly required: Finance See Section 4 of the Selection Questionnaire (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). The rationale applied will be economic operators being able to demonstrate an annual turnover of at least twice the estimated annual value of the Contract. The anticipated value of the Services being procured by the contracting authority approximately one hundred and eight thousand Pounds Sterling (108 000 GBP) per annum. Therefore, economic operators must demonstrate a minimum annual turnover of at least two hundred and sixteen thousand pounds Sterling (216 000 GBP) to pass. Failure by an economic operator to supply either a copy of the audited accounts for the most recent two (2) years or any one of the document listed in (a) — (c) in Section 4.1 of the SQ may also result in exclusion. Further, any answers which leads the contracting authority, acting reasonably, to conclude (considering the risk that the relevant answer suggests about the economic operator's ability to properly perform the Contract) that it would be inappropriate to select the economic operator on this occasion may result in exclusion. In addition, if an economic operator indicates in Section 5 of the SQ that its parent or holding company is prepared to guarantee the performance of the economic operator's company, the information provided in response to Sections 5.1 to 5.3 will be used in the financial assessment of the economic operator. Insurance See 8.1 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Failure to indicate ‘Yes’ to any of the required insurances stated in Section 8.1 will result in exclusion. III.1.3) Technical and professional ability List and brief description of selection criteria: Information and formalities necessary for evaluating if requirements are met: Relevant experience Economic operators are asked to provide examples of relevant experience in accordance with the requirements set out within Section 6 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Security Industry Authority (‘SIA’) Registration See Sections 8.8 to 8.10 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). The successful economic operator, and all members of staff employed by the organisation in service-provision roles, must hold an appropriate and current SIA licence. Economic operators must also self-certify whether your organisation is a SIA Approved Contractor and confirm whether or not they have had any actions, suspensions or investigations taken against their organisation by the SIA in relation to its accreditation(s) (pending, current or discharged) in the last five (5) years. Minimum level(s) of standards required: Relevant experience See Section 6 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Pass — The Candidate has provided either: a) at least 1 example of a previous contract that meets the minimum requirements set out in Section 6, and demonstrates to the reasonable satisfaction of the contracting authority that the economic operator possesses the relevant general technical expertise and professional experience to be entrusted with the contracting authority's Contract; or b) a satisfactory reason as to why the economic operator is unable to provide any examples of previous contracts that are relevant to the contracting authority's requirements under the Contract, and that meets the minimum requirements set out in Section 6.3 of the SQ. However, economic operators are asked to note that: c) If economic operators need to use more than 1 example to demonstrate that they possess the relevant general technical expertise and professional experience, they may do so up to a maximum of three (3) examples. d) The contracting authority reserves the right to confirm the accuracy of any information provided in response to Section 6 of the SQ with any named customer contact(s). Any replies from any named customer contact(s) which lead the contracting authority, acting reasonably, to doubt any significant representations made in the economic operator's responses to Section 6 may result in exclusion. Fail — The economic operator: a) has failed to provide any examples of any previous contracts in response to Section 6 of the SQ; and b) has failed to provide a satisfactory reason as to why they were unable to provide any examples; or c) the examples given in response to Section 6 of the SQ do not demonstrate to the reasonable satisfaction of the contracting authority that the economic operator possesses the relevant general technical expertise and professional experience to be entrusted with the contracting authority's Contract. SIA Registration See Sections 8.8 to 8.10 of the SQ (available to download at: https://www.yortender.co.uk/procontract/supplier.nsf). Failure to indicate ‘Yes’ to Question 8.8 will result in exclusion. Responses to Question 8.9 shall be for information only.
