Shared Lives – Wolverhampton – Market Engagement Event 6 May 2021
The aim of this event is to provide an outline of the commissioning intentions, for commissioners to understand the interest and the market’s capabilities.
The City of Wolverhampton Council are inviting providers to hear about an upcoming tendering opportunity for a new contract that we will be created to replace the existing contract (PP17030 – Shared Lives.) The aim of this event is to provide an outline of the commissioning intentions, for commissioners to understand the interest and the market’s capabilities, and for potential service providers to gain a wider understanding of the scope, provide feedback and ask questions. The first session will give an overview of the current services provided in Wolverhampton, describe the Council’s visions going forward and explain the procurement process. The information gathered from this exercise will help shape future proposals including any potential tendering process and associated service specification. For the avoidance of doubt, this stage of the project is not part of a formal procurement process and the Council is not committing, at this stage, to carrying out such a process. Participation or non-participation in the pre-procurement market engagement process shall not prevent any supplier participating in a potential future procurement, nor is it intended that any information supplied as part of the pre-procurement process shall place any supplier at an advantage in a potential procurement process. Participation in the pre-procurement market engagement procurement process will be at each suppliers own cost. No expense in responding to this process will be reimbursed by the Council. This is not a call for competition. The virtual provider engagement session will be held via MS Teams between 14.00pm – 15.30pm on Thursday 6 May 2021 to provide further information about this tender opportunity. The availability to book will open on Wednesday 21st April 2021 at 3pm and will close on Wednesday 5th May 2021 at 3pm.
