II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Portsmouth City Council, the “Authority” is seeking to establish a 4 years multi-supplier framework for the provision of supported living for people with a learning disability and other disabilities.
The framework contract period will be 4 years and call-offs contracts during this period will be for the provision of support in both newly commissioned supported living services and also for existing services where the current contract has ended. The contract periods and value of each individual call-off will vary depending on individual needs and circumstances.
The contract value of individual projects let via the framework will typically range from approximately 680 000 GBP to 5 500 000 GBP, however, to provide for flexibility, there will be no binding upper or lower limit.
The authority is aiming to have awarded the framework agreement by 18.6.2018. Once operational, the agreement will run for a maximum duration of 4 years. The estimated value of call-offs to be let via over the 4 years period is in the region of 60 000 000 GBP. However, the Authority reserves the right to exceed this limit where required due to unforeseen circumstances or changes in operational or strategic direction.
The authority will establish the framework concurrently with the letting of a contract for the provision of a supported living service for people with a learning disability for up to 28 people living in 7 shared properties in Portsmouth. This is a re-tender of an existing contract.
This contract will commence on 1.10.2018 and run for 3 years with the option to extend for a further 12 months. The estimated value of the contract is 2 220 000 GBP. A service specification, key performance indicators and example pen pictures are included within the tender pack.
A 2-tier framework agreement will be established to provide for additional flexibility and contingency over the term of the agreement. The first tier will be the primary tier and will be made up of the highest scoring 10 providers as a result of the evaluation process. The second tier will be a reserve of 4 providers.
The primary tier will be invited to bid for all contracts let via the framework. The authority will also have the option to invite one or more tier 2 providers to submit bids on particular call-offs where the number of tier one organisations has reduced. This could be due to situations such as provider suspension by the council’s safeguarding team, where one or more provider has indicated that they will not bid, or where an insufficient number of bids have been received from tier one providers.
The procurement programme for establishing the framework agreement and letting of the concurrent contract is as follows:
