C0261 Specialist Forensic Mental Health Step Down Residential Rehabilitation.
West Hampshire CCG are commissioning on behalf of the CCG’s of Southampton, Hampshire, Isle of Wight and Portsmouth a Community Learning Disability Forensic Service. The Forensic Community Team resource is seen as a means of moving from hospital based to a social care model for people with forensic needs who also have a learning disability. In support of this West Hampshire CCG has applied for a Grant from NHS England to help provide accommodation via a Registered Social Landlord provision, with associated Supported Living resources being procured alongside this procurement to provide support staff for this service. The Grant application is for £935k with funding if approved, becoming available from May/June 2017 to source 5 flats across 2 sites within Hampshire (2 flats in one building and 3 in another). The contract with the appointed Registered Social Landlord would be for a period of 30 years (initial term) with the ongoing service and maintenance costs for the properties being funded via the Housing Benefit of the Tenants. This contract is likely to be for a minimum of 30 years.
Tenants would likely stay within the Forensic Community Service accommodation for up to 2 years until they move in to a more permanent home. These tenants will require their own front door and own tenancy agreement. The Tenant will be responsible through their Housing Benefit, to cover the costs for service charges for cleaning of communal areas (inside and out), utility bills, council taxes, etc. When assessed on a client specific basis, it may be more appropriate if these charges and the monthly rental transfer directly to the RSL. The Contracting Authority is willing to consider Risk Share approaches around any potential voids if a property is vacant during the lifetime of the contract. The Contracting Authority is also seeking suggestions on any other innovative solutions for managing these services based on the experience of the RSL.
The service specification which will be released with the Pre Qualification Questionnaire will confirm the requirements for a Registered Social Landlord to source and manage 5 high quality forensic pathway step up/step down self contained flats for clients with learning disabilities to enable them to live in the least restrictive environment with the optimum level of independence. The flats would be identified and sourced by the RSL once their appointment was confirmed. It is not anticipated that they will need to identify the specific properties until the award of contract but they will be asked for assurances during the procurement process of their capacity and capability to be able to deliver this arrangement. RSL’s will be required to engage in multi agency working with other statutory and tertiary services within the locality to ensure personal living conditions are appropriate for each client.
The Housing Partners will be expected to:
• Take responsibility for and project manage the procurement and any required adaptation of agreed priorities to an agreed budget and timescale
• Undertake the ongoing registered social landlord functions
• Undertake all maintenance and repairs of the properties
• Provide assured leases for each client
• Rents (including service charges will be paid by the client via Housing Benefit)
• Provide assurances around their ability for joint working with other related agencies
There will be no requirement to provide separate staff accommodation as this will be part of the Supported Living resources procurement.
To aid the finalisation of the specification, we are holding a market engagement event in the Southampton area on Friday 20th January 2017 Nightingale Room, Wells Place, Eastleigh, Southampton SO50 5 LJ 11:00-13:00. To request your place, please submit a response via the In-Tend portal by 13th January 2017.

Estimated cost excluding VAT: 935,000 GBP

The Defense Forensic Science Center (DFSC) (formerly the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory (USACIL)) provides forensic laboratory services to DoD military criminal investigative organizations (Air Force Office of Special Investigations, Naval Criminal Investigative Service, and the Army Criminal Investigation Command) and other DoD customers. It is a full service forensic laboratory, providing state-of-the-art forensic examinations in the following disciplines: • DNA/Serology• Digital Evidence• Drug Chemistry• Firearms and Toolmarks• Forensic Documents• Latent Prints (including footwear and tire track evidence)• Trace Evidence The DFSC has three primary objectives: (1) Analyze forensic evidence and provide expert testimony to support worldwide criminal investigation across all military services(2) Provide expeditionary and reach-back forensic services to U.S. military forces in active theaters of operation(3) Coordinate and execute research, development, testing and evaluation (RDT&E) projects to advance forensiccapabilities The Department of Defense Forensic Research and Development Program ("Program") is administered by the U.S. Army Research Office and the Defense Forensic Science Center. The Program aims to enhance the capability of forensic science applications in traditional law enforcement/criminal justice purviews and in expeditionary environments. The Program accomplishes this mission by funding research projects that lead to the production of useful knowledge, materials, devices, systems, or methods that have forensic function. To be eligible for an award under this announcement, a prospective awardee must meet certain minimum standards pertaining to financial resources and responsibility, ability to comply with the performance schedule, past performance, integrity, experience, technical capabilities, operational controls, and facilities. In accordance with Federal statutes, regulations, and Department of Defense and Army policies, no person on grounds of race, color, age, sex, national origin, or disability shall be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance from the Army. The Program is seeking proposals for funding to support forensic research and its application. The requested proposals should focus on adding to general forensic knowledge and/or DFSC activities and needs. Forensic research proposals should focus on the creation of new and improved field or laboratory functional capabilities that result in faster, more robust, more informative, less costly, or less labor-intensive recognition, preservation, collection, and/or analysis of forensic evidence. Proposals involving the development of equipment that is portable, sustainable, and useful in an expeditionary or field environment are also solicited. The expeditionary and field environments require systems that are lightweight, portable, inexpensive, fast, and capable of operating in extreme environments of temperature, dust, humidity, etc. The systems must also be capable of secure data communications. Funding of research and development (R&D) within Program areas of interest will be determined by funding constraints and priorities set during each budget cycle. Due to Government budget uncertainties, no specific dollars have been reserved for awards under this BAA. Those contemplating submission of a proposal are encouraged to submit a white paper and quad chart, summarizing their proposed work. If the proposed R&D warrants further inquiry and funding is available, submission of a full technical and cost proposal will be encouraged. This sequence allows earliest determination of the potential for funding and minimizes the labor and cost associated with submission of full proposals that have minimal probability of being selected for funding. Costs associated with white paper, quad chart, or full proposal submissions in response to this BAA are not considered allowable direct charges to any resulting award. These costs may be allowable expenses to normal bid and proposal indirect costs specified in FAR 31.205-18 for contracts. Offerors submitting proposals are cautioned that only a Government Contracting or Grants Officer may obligate the Government to any agreement involving expenditure of Government funds.
