The Department of Health is looking to engage with suppliers regarding the procurement of equipment that will be used in the health system to scan surgical instruments to identify prion proteins contamination before they are re-used. The scanning equipment will be used by Sterile Service Departments to measure residual proteins on a range of surgical instruments after the decontamination process to ensure that no contaminated surgical instrument is re-used and ensure compliance to Health Technical Memorandum (HTM) 01-01: Management and decontamination of surgical instruments (medical devices). The equipment required for this detection is also required to be CE marked as a medical device (MHRA Class iia Accredited) as it will be checking the presence of proteins on medical instruments which directly contact patients. The equipment needs to be ready and available to purchase and meet all the requirements, including compliance during the financial year 2017 — 2018.

The Authority wants to hear from:

(a) interested suppliers that have the capabilities to meet the initial requirement in the short term (2017-2018); and

(b) suppliers that could meet the requirement in future years.

It is the Authority's intention to contract for the purchase of between 50 and 200 units of the required equipment. It is expected that only suppliers that have expressed an interest and can demonstrate that they can meet the initial requirement in the short term (2017-2018) will be invited to tender.

If there are a number of suppliers that are unable to meet the initial requirement in the short term (2017-2018) but are able to demonstrate that they will meet the requirement in the future this may impact on the estimated total value of the initial requirement.

The Application Dates may be revised from time to time in further notices published by Passenger Services.

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.

The London Borough of Lambeth (the Authority), is undertaking preliminary investigations to ascertain whether it can establish a series of commercially viable catering concession contracts. This request for information is intended as an initial starting point to engage possible interested parties. If we receive positive feedback following this request for information, then we may undertake more detailed market testing. We wish to obtain feedback on the possibility of a series of catering concession contracts. High-level analysis suggest that there are a number of locations within the Borough where a form of catering concession contract may be viable. These include the following locations: -	Spring Gardens / Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens: just inside Kennington Lane entrance adjacent to Vauxhall Tavern -	Larkhall Park: just inside Wandsworth Road entrance -	Windrush Square: near Effra Road/Saltoun Road junction -	Emma Cons Gardens: on the periphery of The Cut boundary -	Clapham Common: on the 'grassy knoll' behind Clapham Common underground station. These concessions can take a number of forms including something as simple as so-called "man in a van" opportunities to more complex arrangements. We would appreciate feedback from potential suppliers on locations, any operational concerns, and issues around implementation. We would appreciate feedback on the following points: -	What you believe to be the key drivers of a successful catering concession contract. -	The possible risks that the Authority and the potential supplier should be aware of. -	An indicative outline of the possible financial benefits that the Authority might be able to obtain. -	Possible commercial models that could be used. -	What you believe to be sustainable timeframes for the establishing of a concession. Please send your feedback to Helen Lee(hlee@lambeth.gov.uk) by 5pm on 1st March 2017.

Appraisal of the modelling methodology for the long-term apprenticeship model

DEPARTMENT FOR EDUCATION | Published February 20, 2017  -  Deadline March 17, 2017

See 'Attachments' for a word version of this description. In spring 2017 the way the government funds apprenticeships in England is changing. Some employers will be required to contribute to a new apprenticeship levy and there will changes to the funding for apprenticeship training for all employers. Employers in all sectors will pay the apprenticeship levy if their pay bill is more than £3 million each year. The levy will be paid to HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) through the Pay As You Earn (PAYE) process and it is expected the levy will fund all government spending on apprenticeship training. The link below provides further details of how the levy will work and explains the principles that apprentieceship funding will operate on from 1 May 2017. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apprenticeship-levy-how-it-will-work The introduction of the levy and the changes to the funding system presents a significant challenge to the way the DfE forecasts apprenticeships starts and funding requirements. A forecasting model has been developed in-house to project apprenticeship starts and costs in both levy and non-levy paying employers for the period 2017-18 to 2020-21. The projections will be used to understand the demands on the apprenticeship budget primarily for the purposes of the financial control of apprenticeship spending. OBJECTIVES The aim of the project is to review the design of the model, consider if the model is fit for purpose, and whether other approaches might improve the quality and capability of the model. The project should satisfy the two core objectives below: 1.	Evaluate the model design with respect to: a.	The data sources available to the DfE with information relevant to predicting future apprenticeships starts and costs at both levy and non-levy paying employers. b.	The other modelling approaches available to forecast future starts and costs. c.	The other economic and statistical modelling techniques that could be employed to make best use of the data sources and other information available. 2.	Advise on how any alternative or additional approaches could be implemented that would enhance the model, with an estimate/understanding of the benefits they would have on the starts and costs projections.

NHS Central London CCG, on behalf of the North West London Collaboration of CCGs is looking for a provider to design and deliver an effective front line staff training for the non-specialist workforce that may come into contact with people or carers with mental health needs. The CCGs need to ensure that their primary care workforce - GPs, practice nurses, health care assistants, and practice administrative staff are able to respond to the needs of their patients who have a mental health need as they access more of the help and support they need from their GP practice. To do this, the CCG are proposing that practice staff have access to training to identify and respond to mental health needs and to support the shift of care into primary care settings for people with both serious and long term and common mental health needs. This training should also ensure that staff have a good understanding of current services, and how these are accessed. The training course aims are to: -	ensure greater awareness of how to support people with mental health needs -	improve confidence among staff on recognition of mental health needs and starting conversations about mental health and wellbeing -	provide a clear overview of services across NW London that can support people with mental health needs and any local safeguarding arrangements -	increase staff ability to create timely access to support A series of one-day workshop sessions are to be delivered across each of the eight North West London CCGs to train 15-20 multi-agency staff per workshop and a total of 360-400 staff. The programme is expected to be delivered within the financial year 2017-18 and the available funding is £40,000.
