Defence Healthcare Delivery Optimisation Programme (Defence Medical Services) – Notice of Request for Information Relating to Workforce Management products is now available
This announcement invites interested suppliers to view the Request for Information (RFI) and Statement of Requirements (SoR) for Workforce Management products and services for the Defence Healthcare Delivery Optimisation programme (DHDO) within the UK Ministry of Defence (MOD), available through:
– The Medical Information Services’ (MedIS) Digital Healthcare Supplier Portal;
– The Defence Sourcing Portal ‘Opportunity Listing’ for 702386451 – DHDO: Workforce Management; and
– The Contracts Finder Early Engagement Notice.
This RFI and accompanying SoR invites interested suppliers to read and provide feedback for DHDO’s planned procurement of one or more Workforce Management products. The DHDO team intends to provide further details of the procurement itself later in 2022. The programme team's preference is to procure Workforce Management products and services through a suitable framework (where one exists).
The objectives of this Request for Information are for the Authority to:
a. better understand relevant products that may provide the capability required
b. confirm that the market can provide the services required
c. better understand the routes to market which could provide access to relevant products and services.
Overview of the Workforce Management Product Requirements
Workforce Management digital capability is seen as a key component in supporting Defence Primary Healthcare (DPHC) in helping to match clinical resources to health demand – both in supporting the recovery from COVID-19 and in business-as-usual operations.
The DHDO programme is seeking to integrate a number of Commercial Off The Shelf (COTS) products and services to provide an ecosystem of sub-systems that will support workforce management across Defence Primary Healthcare (DPHC). Workforce Management products may be required to have the ability to integrate with other applications within and outside of the MedIS ecosystem.
The focus of this RFI is on eJob Planning and eRostering capability. Elements of capacity planning have been included in the draft SoR which accompanies this RFI to understand the extent to which these requirements make up the capability of COTS eJob Planning and eRostering tools. However, the SoR does not represent the totality of DHDO’s Workforce Management specification of requirements.
