These will be bespoke, purpose built programmes that may be requested by schools at any given time. The mini competition/tender circulated will provide the explicit details of the service requirement and ask providers who are interested in delivering, to complete a mini competition and submit their service proposal and pricing structure for the bespoke programme delivery. Schools will then choose from the submitted providers proposals which one they wish to access for their young people.

This list is not exhaustive; however, we have identified the following range of immediately required service delivery:

— 1 to 1 support and development,

— mentoring,

— provision for newly arrived young people and the traveling community,

— tailored programmes to address cultural challenges (Knife Crime, Drugs, and Alcohol, etc.).

This lot will allow providers the opportunity to cost their bespoke provision based upon the information provided at the point of referral/mini competition, as the Council recognises the nature of the work and expertise involved.

VI.3)Additional information:

This procurement is for education and training services which are considered light touch regime services under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, as specified in Schedule 3 of the Regulations (‘Regulations’).

The agreement is based upon the basic principles of a Framework Agreement, and although there are some similar aspects, it does not fully operate in the same way as outlined in Regulation 33 of the Public Contracts Regulations (2015).

The local authority will create a ‘pseudo Framework Agreement’ (based on CCS guidance) and have set out clearly how we intend to operate the Framework Agreement from the outset through the OJEU notice, tender document and call-off schedule, which also details the timeline for when it will be reopened. This meets the duty of transparency and equal treatment, which are the main guidelines to follow when setting up an LTR contract.

If a provider fails to be admitted onto the framework, they may reapply for re-consideration during the designated framework reopening term(s) to demonstrate that contract requirements can be met.

The council makes no guarantee as to the volume of business on offer, and any volumes given are indicative only and intended as a general guide. All parties participating in this tender exercise including those preferred bidders awarded a place on the framework should at all times note that the Council provides no guarantee (express or implied) as to the minimum level of work offered to framework partners pursuant to the contract.
