Orovia Group Ltd

72268000

Kent County Council Schools Financial Services team sells a Financial and Support Service to schools and academies within Kent and Medway. The support service centres on a Financial Planning Tool which provides the ability for a school to plan, set and monitor budgets, with a facility to create further budget scenarios. Currently the tool is an in house developed Excel spreadsheet that has become increasingly complex, is not sufficiently robust and is time consuming to maintain and support. The Schools Financial Services Team and customers they support are happy with the functionality of the tool; however an off the shelf product which continues to meet the needs, and is more robust and stable is now required. The requirement for continued public sector efficiencies remains at the forefront of strategic planning, and the Schools Financial Services section is no different in this respect. As a result, the Council is seeking tenders for a fully encompassing, effective and efficient financial management tool, that can be utilised for both council funded schools and academies. The solution will be required to deliver the following high-level requirements: 1. Ability to plan, set and monitor school and academy budgets. 2. Ability to calculate salary cost using a number of salary pay schemes including the current Kent Range Scheme. 3. To be compatible with school accounting systems, including SIMS FMS6, PS Financials and Corero. 4. Ability to comply with the Council's/DfE/EFA financial returns and requirements. 5. Ability for the council to access, with appropriate permission, individual school's financial data. 6. Draft financial plans must be stored to a minimum level of IL2. 7. Delivery to individual schools without the need for software to be individually deployed, but with each school having a unique identifier. Further requirements are detailed in the Invitation to Tender documentation. The majority of KCC funded schools will utilise this solution. Academies and other LA maintained schools will also be able to purchase this tool as is the current practice. Schools Financial Services will provide training and a skills support service for all users, although technical support will be required from the provider. The use of the product to schools/academies within this solution is to be controlled by the Schools Financial Services and the provider will be required to enter into a non-competition agreement with the Council, and agree to provide technical support for any new educational establishments that are added to the solution. Therefore an appropriate licensing model is required.

The operator will be expected to show evidence of running campsite/touring caravan sites, show financial dependability, and indicate how they will promote and enhance the facilities at Reculver to provide the best possible visitor experience to at least 3 star Visit England or AA 2-Pennant holiday park standard.  Operators that have been shown to achieve 4 or 5 stars, or 3 to 5 AA Pennants, and/or a silver or gold Visit England standard will be assessed favourably.  However alternative accreditation body standards will also be considered.
Please ensure that any clarification questions regarding this opportunity are made via the Discussions area of the portal and they will be responded to accordingly – the deadline for clarification questions is 17:00 hours on Monday 11th January 2016.

The principal objective of this opportunity is to provide an employee voluntary benefits Platform, which acts as a focal point to enable engagement of the Council's employees and to assist understanding of, and access to information about all aspects of their employment package. This includes the variety of employee rewards, benefits (including health and wellbeing) and discounts (national and local) in a Total Reward context. Discounts are only a small proportion of the overall Total Reward approach which the Platform must represent. The requirement is for the provision of an Employee Voluntary Benefits Platform to replace the contract for the current provision. The Council is committed to further enhancing employee participation levels and the Platform is seen as a key component to deliver this in practice. There is a desire to use the Platform more strategically and develop ways which can improve and promote the discussion and dialogue between mangers and staff about their wider employment package. This is intended to be innovative and move the delivery of employee benefits to the next level. Categories offered on the current Platform, for example salary sacrifice schemes, financial benefits, health and wellbeing benefits and discounts, are to continue. The current Platform, Kent Rewards, has been in operation for several years. This is web based (site not owned by the Council but domain name is) and delivers valued, beneficial and relevant employee benefits. The Platform is available to an employee base of approximately 35 000 school, non-school and other individuals, as defined by the Council. Although the Platform currently caters for Council and non-Council individuals, its primary purpose is to provide a service to Council employees. The Council is undergoing a period of transformation and it may be that some service provision may change. Eligibility will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis for any new partner or delivery arrangements. It may not be appropriate for employees of partner organisations to access all rewards, benefits and discounts. Tenderers can only respond by logging in and registering to express an interest in this opportunity at the follow web address: www.kentbusinessportal.org.uk

Canterbury City Council is seeking rental offers for a lease to operate a market site at the South Quay, in Whitstable Harbour, Kent.  
 
Recently the South Quay has developed as a visitor attraction with many tourists throughout the year. Currently the eastern end of the South Quay has been closed to the public to allow for the replacement of the quay walls. This work is programmed to be completed by March 2016, so the entire quay can reopen to the public and giving the harbour the opportunity to have its previously popular market reinstated.  
 
The Harbour Board’s objective is to develop Whitstable Harbour into a thriving and successful niche port to the benefit of stakeholders and the community of Whitstable as a whole. The strategic aims of the Board are: 

Financial self sufficiency
• Maintenance and development of the harbour infrastructure
• Support for the local economy
• Contribute to the character and attraction of the town
• Development of tourism
• Compliance with legal and regulatory requirements
• Achievement of environmental interests   
 
The Board has on numerous occasions confirmed its support for a harbour market on the South Quay and it is one of its objectives to reinstate the market so that the previous traders will have the opportunity to recommence trading in the new season. The market will have the benefit of a direct access from Harbour Street via a new gated entrance in the sea wall. The market will also have a new surface so it is fully accessible for all.    
 
The Council is seeking to attract an operator who will promote the Harbour Board’s objective to see the market opened for Easter 2016, and willing and able to commit and invest over term of the lease.   
 
Please ensure that any clarification questions regarding this opportunity are made via the Discussions area of the Kent Business Portal and they will be responded to accordingly – the deadline for clarification questions is 17:00 hours on Wednesday 16th December 2015.   
 
The deadline for offers and rental bids is 12:00 noon on Tuesday 5th January 2016 – all completed documentation must be uploaded to the Kent Business Portal by this deadline.
 

ESC Website Development

Kent County Council | Published August 30, 2017  -  Deadline October 2, 2017
cpvs
72420000

This requirement is for a website development project within the Children, Young People and Education Directorate. The Council is launching an Education Services Company ('ESC') in the spring of 2018. Nine services will transfer across to the new company including: Early Years and Childcare, Educational Psychology, Safeguarding, EduKent, Schools Financial Services, School Improvement, Governor Services, Skills and Employability and Outdoor Education. We are looking for a developer with a technical focus as a key requirement is to introduce e-commerce. This tender is aiming to replace the EduKent website (www.edukent.co.uk) with a new site which will promote all the services provided by the Council plus offering statutory and other commissioned services and relevant information with a launch date of Monday 12 March 2018. This means the site will promote non-ESC services which won't be delivered by the ESC (such as the Council's Schools Personnel Services and cleaning services etc and services from Gen2 (property related services) and Invicta Law (legal services)). ESC website objectives 1) The ESC website to act as the single front door for all education services delivered out of KCC. 2) To deliver maximum sustainable income for ESC: - by optimising cross/up-selling and bundling - by promoting related products/services. 3) To integrate online sales to the EduKent CRM to deliver data for marketing and on-site cross-selling 4) To provide excellent user experience - single sign-on, responsive design, easy search and navigation, a seamless transfer from the ESC to the e-Learning platform, etc. 5) To feature tailored/relevant, 'sticky' but concise content. 6) To launch the new ESC website on Monday 12 March 2018. Our ultimate goal is to simplify the landscape so that ESC customers only have to go to one central website for all their education services. Due to time and budget constraints it is anticipated that this will initially be achieved in two stages: Stage 1 - A central portal site built to replace - EduKent - www.Edukent.co.uk. As well as selling services, it will offer statutory services and feature bite-sized information. The site will feature libraries of products and information across all nine ESC services. We will also want to migrate the KCC safeguarding blog (https://kentesafety.wordpress.com/), building this into the new site. Stage 2 - Migration of the Schools Financial Services website http://edukentsfs.squarespace.com/ and Early Years and Childcare's www.threadsofsuccess.co.uk. If affordable we will also want to migrate Adventure Kent - http://www.adventurekent.org/. It is anticipated that any contract entered into will provide for flexibility in delivery and as a result reasonable additional services may be added to the contract to allow for continued effective delivery Tenders will be assessed using MEAT award criteria, which will be measured using a Price per Quality Point scoring method.
