Service category No 25: Health and social services
Main site or location of works, place of delivery or of performance: Corporation Road, Cardiff.
NUTS code UKL22
The individuals concerned are single homeless adults with a range of social, physical, substance misuse and mental health related difficulties.
A property has been identified to be used as the supported accommodation for this Project.
This property is owned by Taff Housing Association, a Registered Social Landlord (RSL).
It is anticipated that the building will be ready for occupation June 2014.
Each of the six individuals will hold a tenancy agreement with Taff.
Cardiff Council wishes to tender for two separate contracts, one in relation to the Housing Related Support (HRS) services and the other in relation to Personal Domiciliary Care (PDC) services.
The combined estimated value of these contracts is circa 564000GBP based on contract terms of three years plus an option to extend for a further year.
Cardiff Council requires one contractor to provide both services, however the authority will welcome consortium bids, with one supplier acting as the “lead provider”.
This will be reflected in the tender documentation.
The Housing Related Support services contract is to be funded from the Supporting People Programme Grant (SPPG) and the Regional Collaborative Committee has already approved the use of SPPG for this Project to the value of 43000GBP per annum for the duration of the proposed contract.
We will evaluate the provider’s ability to meet minimum selection criteria, such as insurance, financial standing, past experience, equalities and health & safety record, and to satisfactorily deliver the requirements of the service specification.

Accordingly tenderers should note that the Council has chosen voluntarily to issue an OJEU Notice and for the avoidance of doubt this action shall not give rise to any further obligations other than those applicable to Part B services.
Given this is a voluntary OJEU notice, bidders should note that all dates relating to the process are subject to change.
The Council will use a fair, transparent and proportionate procedure with timescales and processes chosen by the Council.
For the avoidance of doubt the Council will not be bound by and statutory time limits as this is a contract opportunity which for the purposes of the public contracts regulations is a Part B Service, and therefore not subject to the full extent of the public contract regulations (as amended) is not required to be tendered under the public contract regulations (as amended) and accordingly the Council is only obliged to comply with those parts of the Regulations (as amended) which apply to Part B Services.
The Council reserves the right to award all, part or none of the business forming the subject matter of this procurement and to abandon, halt, postpone this procurement at any time.
Under no circumstances will the council incur any liability (including, but not limited to, liability as to costs) in respect of this procurement exercise, the abandonment of the same, or any documentation issued as part of this procurement exercise.
