VI.3)Additional information

Please note this is a voluntary notice as healthcare services are currently Part B regime in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (as Amended), and therefore compliance to the full regulations is not mandatory. The new Public Contracts Regulations 2015 are now in force; however there is a delay in application of the Light Touch Regime (LTR) to the commissioning of health services for the purposes of the NHS. Draft Regulation 118 provides that the LTR will only apply to the procurement (“Commissioning”) of health services for the purposes of the NHS from 18.4.2016. The basic principles of the Open Procedure will be followed to commission the Intermediate Care Beds service thus ensuring a fair, open and transparent process in accordance with NHS (Procurement, Patient Choice and Competition) (No 2) Regulations 2013.
It is anticipated that the Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations 2006 as Amended by the Collective Redundancies and Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) (Amendment) Regulations 2014 (TUPE) may not apply for this contract. Bidders are advised to form their own view on whether TUPE applies, obtaining their own legal advice and carrying out due diligence. It is the bidders responsibility to verify TUPE information with the incumbent service provider (details of which will be provided in the Tender Documentation).
“Under the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012 the 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.”
Accordingly, the subject matter of the contract has been scoped to take into account the priorities of the Contracting Authority relating to economic, social and environmental well-being. These priorities are described in the Invitation to Tender and are reflected in environmental and social characteristics in the evaluation criteria for the award of the contract.

Part 9 of these regulations provides for appeals to be made to the High Court subject to the time limitations and other required procedural steps.
