Framework agreement for the provision of a Family Support and Intervention Service for Children and Young People with Disabilities and their Families in the London Borough of Redbridge for the period 1.10.2015 to 30.9.2019.
The London Borough of Redbridge (‘the Authority’) invites Tenders from suitably experienced and CQC qualified registered providers who have a CQC Inspection Rating of Outstanding or Good for appointment to a Framework Agreement for the Provision of a Family Support and Intervention Service for Children and Young People with Disabilities and their Families in the London Borough of Redbridge (‘the Framework’).
The Framework will commence on the 1.10.2015 and, subject to satisfactory performance, will operate for a period of 4 (four) years, terminating at midnight on the 30.9.2019 (‘the Framework Period’).
The aim of the Framework is to provide family support and intervention services for Children and Young People with Disabilities and their Families.
The Framework shall consist of the following Lots:
— Lot A: Care and Support; and
— Lot B: Early Intervention Care and Support
Providers are permitted to submit a Tender for any one or both of the Lots as they consider appropriate for their qualifications and experience.
The Authority does not guarantee any level of expenditure under the Framework and this will be dictated solely by the needs of the service. However, the Authority anticipates that the annual expenditure under each Lot will be approximately as follows:
— Lot A: Care and Support — 640 000 GBP;
— Lot B: Early Intervention Care and Support — 160 000 GBP.
Framework Agreement Appointment Criteria
The Authority anticipates appointing the following number of providers to each Lot of the Framework:
— Lot A: Care and Support — In the region of 5 (five);
— Lot B: Early Intervention Care and Support — In the region of 3 (three).
Such actual numbers to be appointed to each Lot of the Framework will be determined by the Authority in accordance with the quality of the Tenders received and the numbers the Authority reasonably considers appropriate in all the circumstances.
Appointment to each Lot on the Framework will be based on the most economically advantageous Tenders received for each Lot. This shall be based on the Evaluation Criteria of Technical Ability/ Quality 50 % and Price 50 %, as more fully described in the Tender Documents.
Providers shall note that only those providers who score a minimum of thirty percent (30 %) out of the total available fifty percent (50 %) for the Technical Ability/Quality element of the Evaluation Criteria will be considered for appointment to the Framework, irrespective of the score the provider achieves for the Price element of the Evaluation Criteria.
Providers shall also note that as part of their Tender they are required to complete a Qualifying Questionnaire containing information about their economic and financial standing, technical standards, equalities and safeguarding practices, and their policies on Health and Safety, Prevention of Bribery and Environmental/Sustainability. The Authority shall assess this Questionnaire prior to evaluating the remainder of the Tender and only those providers who satisfy the minimum requirements of the Questionnaire will have the remainder of their Tender evaluated.
Providers must demonstrate a track record of reliability, quality service provision and the ability to meet the needs of children and young people with a range of disabilities and complex health needs. Providers must operate from a premises based within the boundaries of the Authority or its bordering authorities.
Providers shall note that appointment to the Framework does not guarantee that they will be required to provide any services under the Framework. All services required shall be allocated to a provider in the relevant Lot of the Framework in accordance with the Call-Off procedure identified in the Tender Documents.
Award of Call-Off Contracts
All Call-Off Contracts required under the Framework will be awarded to the provider in the relevant Lot with the requisite skills to provide the services required and whose Schedule of Rates provides the lowest price for the required services following the application of the process detailed in the Tender Documents. Providers shall be aware that the Authority reserves the right to award a Call-Off Contract to a provider in the Lot whose Schedule of Rates does not provide the lowest price for the services if the services involve a specialism which is possessed by the higher priced provider and not by the lowest priced.
Providers shall be aware that any Call-Off Contract awarded prior to the expiration of the Framework may continue beyond the expiration of the Framework. In such circumstances the provider will be bound by the terms of the Framework and the Call-Off Contract until the expiration of the Call-Off Contract.
‘Under the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 prior to commencing its procurement every contracting authority must consider:
(a) how what is proposed to be procured might improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the area where it exercises its functions; and
(b) how, in conducting the process of procurement, it might act with a view to securing that improvement.’
In discharge of this obligation the Authority has scoped the Contract with a view to the Services stipulated serving to improve the economic, social and environmental well-being of the Authority’s area. These elements are described in the specification and are performance obligations.
