It is anticipated the care provision contract will be a block bed arrangement and will be in place for 15 years with 2 possible extensions, each of 5 years.

It is intended the Council will enter into a long lease arrangement with the provider(s) for the land provided and enter into a separate care provision contract with the provider(s).

It should be noted during the term of the contract, Peterborough County Council may require new care home provision to be built which may rely on this arrangement, although this is yet to be decided. Any such provision within Peterborough would be addressed under Lot 1.

The Council intends to enter into a formal Competitive Dialogue process with the market in order to appoint a strategic partner(s) (or a consortium of partners) to design, build, operate and maintain new residential and nursing care home provision for older people in Cambridgeshire.

The Council requires interested parties to complete a Supplier Qualification (SQ) Questionnaire. Following evaluation of the SQ submissions, the four highest scoring bidders (per Lot) who pass the SQ threshold of 63 % will qualify to participate in the Invitation to Participate in Competitive Dialogue (ITPCD). Please see the SQ Guidance document for more information.

The Council intends to award a contract for the design, build, operation and management of new care home provision to one strategic partner (or consortium of partners) per Lot for Lots 1 and 2 or one strategic partner (or consortium of partners) for Lot 3.

Bidders are invited to submit a bid for either 1, 2 or all 3 Lots.

Please note that if a bidder wishes to submit a bid for Lot 1 and Lot 2 (South Cambridgeshire), and would also be interested in delivering services across the whole of Cambridgeshire, the bidder must also express an interest in Lot 3 (Cambridgeshire as a whole).

Bidders who do not select Lot 3 as an option will only be considered to deliver services in either Lot 1 or Lot 2.

Bidders who have only selected Lot 1 and/ or 2 (and not Lot 3) will only be able to win either Lot 1 and/ or Lot 2.

Please note that bidders who express an interest in Lot 3 will be subject to a higher financial qualification threshold.

Should a bidder fail to meet the requirements of this higher level of financial qualification required for Lot 3, and has indicated an interest in all 3 Lots, they will only be considered for Lot 1 and 2.

The authority reserves the right to:

— award the contract to either 1 or 2 bidders,

— choose not to award a contract under any Lot as a result of the procurement process,

— remove or add Lots at any time during the procurement process.

A threshold pass mark of 63 % will be applied at the SQ stage. The four highest scoring bidders (per Lot) who pass the SQ threshold of 63 % will qualify to participate in the Invitation to Participate in Dialogue (ITPD). Bidders that fail mandatory pass/fail questions will be deemed non-compliant and their submission will not be considered any further.

VI.4.3)Review procedure

Precise information on deadline(s) for review procedures:

The Council will incorporate a minimum 10 calendar day standstill period at the point information on the award of the contract is communicated to tenderers. This period allows unsuccessful tenderers to seek further debriefing from the contracting authority before the contract is entered into. Such additional information should be requested from (refer to address in part I.1). If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (Chapter 6) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules, to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be brought promptly. Where a contract has not been entered into, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. If the contract has been entered into, the court may order the ineffectiveness of a contract where a serious breach has occurred in addition to any fine, the Court may instead provide for alternative penalties, either contract shortening, fines or both.
