LGSS is a jointly owned shared service formed by Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) and Northamptonshire County Council (NCC) in October 2010 through the merger of their corporate services into a single entity. LGSS is one of the UK’s largest shared services ventures of its kind and is already delivering improved value to a wide range of customers across the public sector through sharing resources, process redesign and shared exploitation of technology. The aim of LGSS is to continue to expand the number of customers utilising our services, which will further exploit the economies of scale across the wider public sector.
Cambridgeshire County Council (the “Authority”) wishes to invite Tenders for the supply of a Framework Agreement for a sole supplier of Cash Collection Services initially in respect of Cambridgeshire County Council, Northamptonshire County Council, Northamptonshire Partnership Homes,
Northampton Leisure Trust and Northampton Borough Council. The successful Potential Provider(s) will be responsible for providing this service and liaising closely with the Contract Manager identified by the Authority.
This framework agreement shall be for four years in total.
This Framework Agreement is open to all of LGSS including:
i. partners and other organisations delegating services and or functions to
LGSS (currently Cambridgeshire County Council, Northamptonshire County Council,
Norwich City Council and Northampton Borough Council) who participate in LGSS’
shared services venture;

This ITT is being managed by the LGSS Procurement Team on behalf of Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC),Northamptonshire County Council
(NCC),Northampton Borough Council (NBC), and Northampton Partnership Homes
(NPH) and Northampton Leisure Trust.
The Council’s are collaborating on a joint procurement to create efficienicies whilst at the same time providing economies of scale in area where the spend and use may reduce to a number of initiaties to reduce building portofolio’s and reductions in the use of cash within service areas as they move a more on-line digital first strategy where practical and possible, e.g. Pay for Parking by mobile phone or an online app within Cambridgeshire, new Project Angel building being developed within Northamptonshire. This however is not to say that their will not be new areas for collections within the authorities as well, e.g. collections from Park and Ride Sites.
Cambridgeshire County Council along with Northamptonshire County Council, Northampton Leisure Trust, Northampton Partnership Homes and Northampton Borough Council (the “Council”) wishes to call-off the framework for an initial period of three years with the option to extend for a further year and appoint that single Service Provider to deliver a secure Cash Management Solution which includes cash collections, processing, counting (when advised), transportation and depositing services from a large number of designated locations within the geographical boundaries of the County of Cambridgeshire and Northamptonshire although some collections could be outside of the boundaries during the life of the arrangement.
