II.3)Short description of the specific contract:

In relation to Kent County Council’s Public Health DPS notice number: 323771-2014 The Council has up a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for Public Health Services to allow the Council to buy Public Health Services from a list of approved providers who meet a certain minimum standards and agree to a common set of contractual terms Approved providers will then be able to bid for the Council’s contracts to deliver Public Health Services.
Kent County Council’s Public Health department is developing a programme to systematically reduce physical inactivity across the county. Three separate pilot projects will be funded in 2015 and test out a variety of commissioning models. The overall aim is to evaluate the different approaches to inform the development of a county-wide programme helping to improve outcomes for Kent residents. The approach of all pilots will be based on the Department of Health’s Let’s Get Moving (LGM) commissioning model.
Two of these pilot projects are to deliver behavioural change interventions through existing staff networks and the council is looking for innovative approaches to delivery, that encourage a long term change in behaviour of those involved. Each pilot holds a contract value of up to 30 000 GBP organisations or consortiums can only apply for 1 of the 2 pilots.
The Council invites applications from an organisation /consortium of organisations, which have frontline staff in regular and structured contact with Kent residents. These residents must be from areas of higher deprivation and/or experiencing significant health inequalities. Providers will be asked to deliver specific behavioural change interventions to increase physical activity through their existing staff or practitioner networks. The successful provider will need to work with an external evaluator and carry out a 12 month follow up with participants.

A market engagement event will be held on the 9.3.2015 to help encourage collaboration, innovative approaches and inform the specification for this pilot. Interested parties should email alex.emby@kent.gov.uk to reserve a place. All potential tenderers must submit an application to the Public Health Dynamic Purchasing System prior to this event, if you have not been accepted on the the Public Health Dynamic Purchasing System you will not receive a copy of the tender documents. The invitation to tender will be released soon after this event via the Public Health dynamic purchasing system with plans to award a contract at the end of March 2015. The selected provider will need to mobilise soon after contract award date.
