Description of the contract

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE or ‘the Institute’) is an independent organisation responsible for providing national guidance on promoting good health and preventing and treating disease. Within NICE the Centre for Public Health Excellence (CPHE) is responsible for producing public health guidance. The CPHE is developing guidance on “Oral health: local authority strategies to improve oral health, particularly among vulnerable groups”. There are three components associated with the guidance development: 1. A review of oral health improvement programmes and interventions (covering evidence of effectiveness, and barriers and facilitators) 2. A review and practice survey of oral health needs assessments 3. An economic analysis. This requirement specification is for component 3 only – an economic analysis of oral health improvement programmes and interventions (oral health promotion). Separate Invitations to Tender have been issued for components 1 and 2. The findings of the economic analysis will be considered by the NICE Public Health Advisory Committee (PHAC) as the basis for their recommendations. The contractor should be able to start work from April 2013. The contractor will be provided with funding for the analysis to be undertaken over the period of guidance development (April 2013–October 2014), however the bulk of the work will need to be completed by October 2013 – see section 2.3). CPHE welcomes tenders for this work from individual organisations or consortia of organisations. Where an organisation joins with a partner/ consortia to submit a joint proposal, in line with public sector best practice, NICE will only contract with the lead bidding organisation. The contractor will work in line with NICE methods and processes for development of evidence-based public health guidance. The current Process Guide and Methods Manual (2012) for CPHE guidance are at: http://www.nice.org.uk/aboutnice/howwework/developingnicepublichealthguidance/publichealthguidanceprocessandmethodguides/public_health_guidance_process_and_method_guides.jsp The contractor will be multidisciplinary, capable of providing high quality analyses and evidence to decision makers within very tight timescales. This is an exciting and challenging opportunity for a high calibre team to contribute to the work of NICE.
