Description

Leicestershire County Council (LCC) Children and Family Services would like to invite interested providers to a Collaboration Event regarding residential and foster care placements for children in care. LCC’s current procurement solution (East Midlands Regional Children’s Framework) will end as of 31 January 2020 and there will not be a future consortia approach in the East Midlands. Therefore, LCC is progressing with a local procurement solution commencing 1 February 2020.

LCC are passionate about working with providers to co-design this solution and understand what a collaborative approach could/should look like and address some of the key barriers and challenges that occur with the current approach. We are committed to developing a systemic approach to providing good quality local provision for
local children at the right time and we cannot do this without you!

We would like to invite you to the Collaboration Event which is being held on Friday 19th July 2019. There will be 2 identical sessions run on this date for you to choose at your convenience;
Session 1: 10.00am – 12.00pm;
Session 2: 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Information about the venue will be provided upon confirmation of registration.

Participating in this exercise will not affect any party positively or negatively during any eventual procurement process and the Council reserve the right not to proceed with any procurement process. Interested parties are further advised that any information given during the market engagement exercise will not form part of an interested party’s tender submission and that a failure to respond to this notice will not preclude them from responding to any future contract notice.
