Provision of Assessments of Eligibility for Disabled Persons’ Travel Passes

Merseytravel requires the services of a suitable service provider to carry out assessments of applicants for disabled persons’ travel passes, under the English National Concessionary Travel scheme.

The successful tenderer will be required to assess the eligibility of customers applying for a Disabled Persons’ Travel Pass on the grounds of three categories of disability:

  • Category D (“has a disability, or has suffered an injury which has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on [her/his] ability to walk”);
  • Category F (“has a learning disability”);
  • Category G (“would, if she/he applied for the grant of a licence to drive a motor vehicle under Part III of the Road Traffic Act 1988, have her/his application refused pursuant to Section 92 of the Act – physical fitness”).

Please refer to the attached link on the PQQ for more information regarding the above category’s

Most of the assessments would be “in person” assessments, to be carried out at the service provider’s premises in Merseyside.  The service provider would also be required to carry out “paper assessments” (for customers applying under Category G, due to severe mental disorder).  The service provider will prepare a report of each assessment, giving Merseytravel its opinion as to whether the applicant meets the eligibility criteria of the English National Concessionary Travel Scheme.

The successful tenderer would be awarded a contract for two years, with a possible extension of up to two years.
