The above list is not exhaustive and full details on the required services will be outlined in the service specification as part of the contract documents for those Bidders invited to tender.
The Contracting Authority wishes to receive responses to the PQQ from suitably qualified healthcare providers experienced in healthcare service provision within secure settings (Bidders) with the necessary capacity and capability (or a demonstrable ability to provide the necessary capacity and capability) to provide the specified services within the requisite timescales. The Contracting Authority intends to award one contract as a result of this procurement process for each of the Lots described above. Further information on the proposed structure of the contract is provided in the PQQ and Memorandum of Information (MOI) documentation made available online to interested parties on the NHS Sourcing eTendering portal (link below).
The Contracting Authority will consider consortia bids in the procurement. The Contracting Authority will only accept bids from organisations (or groups of organisations) that are able to provide the full list of required services within each Lot. The services within each Lot are non-separable.
To clarify, Bidders who only specialise in certain service areas are able to form consortia or other relationships (for example sub-contracting for a Prime contractor) in order to be considered for the opportunity. Important information regarding Bidder Structures is available on the tender portal for interested parties. This information explains the structures which Bidders are able to/ required to take in Bidding for this opportunity.
The contract will have an initial period of 5 years (60 months) which will be followed by two optional 12 month extension periods. Therefore if both of the optional extensions are taken up, the maximum contract period will be 84 months.
The Estimated Contract Value for Lot 1 is 49 063 000 GBP.
The Estimated Contract Value for Lot 2 is 63 749 000 GBP.
The contract values shown above and elsewhere on the advert are estimated figures for the full (extended) 7 year contract term (Ex VAT).
Interested potential Bidders must access the PQQ documentation via the NHS Sourcing eTendering portal as soon as possible and ensure they are familiar with the process. Completed PQQ responses will only be accepted via the eTendering portal specified and the deadline for submission of these is Friday 22.5.2015 at 12:00 (noon).
If on reading this advert, you do not wish to register as a Lead Bidder but would be interested in becoming a subcontractor for a Lead Bidder, please find within the documentation on the eTendering portal a template to complete and submit to register your interest in this opportunity as a subcontractor. Interested subcontractors should submit their information forms via the portal as soon as possible via the messaging function on the portal so that it can be shared with potential Lead Bidders (subcontractors should not necessarily wait until PQQ submission date to submit their forms).
Additional information can be found in the Memorandum of Information (MOI) document available now via the eTendering portal. The PQQ documentation will be made available for download on the e-tendering portal (link below) by 16:00 on 17.4.2015.
The dates and other information outlined in this advert are subject to change and interested parties are advised to register on the eTendering portal to keep up to date with any subsequent changes to information relating to this contract opportunity.
The Public Contracts Regulations 2015 do not come into force for clinical healthcare service procurements until April 2016 and therefore the Services to which this requirement relates fall within Part B of Schedule 3 to the Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (the Regulations) and Appendix II B to Council Directive 2004/18/EC. Neither the publication of the advertisement(s), the inclusion of a Bidder selection stage nor the use of the term Pre-Qualification Questionnaire nor any other indication (including any statement in the ITT) shall be taken to mean that the Contracting Authority intends to hold itself bound by any of the Regulations, save those applicable to Part B services. NHS England will be using the Restricted tender process as a template for this Part B service procurement — see above.
All communication must be via the eTendering portal stated.
