As part of the NDPP, NHS England wishes to procure a Framework Agreement with 5 (five) providers who are able to provide, anywhere in England, up to 100 000 behavioural interventions aimed at preventing or delaying the onset of Type 2 diabetes in people with non-diabetic hyperglycaemia (or pre-diabetes) per annum for the initial period of the 3 year Framework Agreement. The Framework Agreement will include an option for it to be extended for a further 12 months in addition to the initial 3 year term upon review.

During the term, NHS England reserves the right, should funding become available, to increase the number of behavioural interventions per annum. The numbers of behavioural interventions may vary during the term of the Framework Agreement and these figures are estimates only, as precise quantities of likely purchases are unknown.
