II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

The Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime (MOPAC) as the contracting authority is tendering for the Provision of Conflict Management Services (the Services) to the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS). The Authority/MPS is seeking through this tendering process to award a contract with a suitably capable Contractor to provide these Services for an initial term of 24 months.
Following a significant increase in serious youth violence and murders, frequently associated with gang issues, the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) developed a number of new approaches to preventing this situation from escalating further. The MPS seeks to procure a service provider for the delivery of high-risk conflict resolution/management services in London with a service provider who is able to demonstrate a proven track record of the provision of conflict management or a similar field.
Conflict management is an intervention tactic that aims to reduce gang related violence between individuals. The aim of the intervention is to reduce violence by overseeing and assisting communication between one or more conflicting parties. Conflict management is undertaken to remove threats of violence; in cases where there is a Threat to Life and where serious group offending is known or suspected to exist. Each case referred to the service provider will be unique; however an example could be that a member of gang A has a disagreement with a member of gang B. It comes to the attention of police or a local authority that the member of gang A is actively seeking a violent outcome to the disagreement and that the likely result is the use of serious violence. On receipt of this information, the MPS will make a referral (via secure server email) to the conflict management service provider who will subsequently mediate between the conflicting parties with a view to achieving a reduction in hostilities. Another example could be where there has been a threat of violence or an act of violence that comes to the attention of the police in which the parties are known to each other but decline to support police action. Again, the MPS would refer the situation to the mediation service provider for resolution.
