Description

Leicester city council is looking to gather information as part of a soft market testing exercise in order to seek the market’s views on the development of a model of services, the capacity of the market to supply these services, and the level of interest in this proposed procurement activity.

The documentation attached provides our proposals, to date, for the development of our VAT and Tax Advice Consultancy and seeks information regarding your organisation and your services.

Following completion of this exercise the Council will review the responses it receives from respondents with the aim of devising a sourcing strategy that can be delivered feasibly by the market and achieve the Council’s desired outcomes previously stated.

Any subsequent contract awarded may be divided into 2 lots for each of the previously described services.

Contractual terms may be:

VAT and Tax Advice ‘Helpline’ and Support Consultancy Service – 3 years, from 1st July 2015, with an option to extend for a further year.

VAT and Tax Innovative Ideas Service framework – 3 years, from 1st July 2015, with an option to extend for a further year but with an opportunity to add appropriate organisations throughout the contract term (akin to an approved contractor approach).

One of the objectives of soft market testing the VAT and Tax Innovative Ideas Service is to ensure the Council has the best advice available and achieves the best possible value for money in this respect. From a supplier perspective this approach will allow multiple providers the opportunity to propose innovative ideas thereby giving them the opportunity to compete for the gain-share payments.

Participants are invited to respond to section two in the attached documentation.

Please send the attached responses in word-format (format unchanged) by email to Ian.Harris@leicester.gov.uk by 1600hrs on 23/01/2015 at the very latest.

For questions regarding this process, you are welcome to contact Pam.Grainger@leicester.gov.uk
