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

Obesity is one of the ten priority areas for children identified for development within Leeds West CCG.
The National Child Measurement Programme has identified that there are areas of Leeds West where there are pockets of significantly higher than average prevalence of obesity.
The primary school clusters in these areas include Open XS (Little London/Woodhouse), Bramley and Armley. In contrast there are areas where although the prevalence figures are not above the national average they are increasing alongside an increasing population of children. These additional cluster areas include Morley, Ardsley and Tingley. Furthermore, these areas also differ in terms of the catering companies who supply the food to the primary schools and the availability of fruit and vegetables from retailers.
We wish to introduce evidence based obesity prevention programmes to these school cluster areas which will drive quantifiable and sustainable behaviour changes in eating habits and will complement and support physical activity programmes, existing obesity treatment programmes and statutory requirements.
These programmes will result in not only sustained change in the child’s eating activity but also sustained change in the schools, caterers, retailers and parents attitudes and behaviour.

A bidder event will be held on Tuesday 14th October between 09:30 and 12:00 in the Boardroom, Suites 2-4 Ground Floor, WIRA House, Leeds LS16 6EB.

This event will provide further details as to the rationale for this project and the intended outcomes.
The successful providers(s) will be offered a standard NHS contract. The contract is a block contract and there will be an incentive scheme.
The pricing to be submitted by providers which shall not exceed 290 000 GBP for the 2 year period, and should be based on a 66 % uptake from schools. This is based on the expected take up, however we understand that if a higher percentage of schools was to take up the service then the costs to the provider would increase proportionately. We will therefore be developing a local incentive scheme to cover the costs of any increase in take up and should this result in 100 % of schools taking part, and the services being delivered in full, the final budget could be up to 440 000 GBP. As the expected take up is 66 % we are basing the price comparison and expected value at up to 290 000 GBP for the purposes of this tender.
The contract will be for a 2 year period following mobilisation and there will be the option for the CCG to extend to this for up to two additional years depending on outcomes and funding.

A service specification, the draft contract particulars, Service conditions and General conditions along with the electronic application form can be found on-line at www.nhssourcing.co.uk and applications will be received until 12.11.2014.
