Description

Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (The Council), is looking to establish a Light Touch Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to procure provision of short break activities for disabled children and young people.

A DPS offers a flexible and responsive approach to commissioning and purchasing which we believe would improve the existing arrangements for short breaks. The DPS is a “live” list of approved operators. The DPS will be advertised via YORtender system, and providers can complete a simple on-line application process using the YORtender portal.

All providers who meet and pass the exclusion and selection criteria will be admitted to the DPS. Successful operators will be advised that they are on the DPS. Short breaks providers will collectively offer a range of provision for children from 5 to 17 years of age with a disability who would benefit from targeted group based activities. Activities must be adaptable to suit a range of ages, abilities, needs and interests. Delivery must be within Barnsley and where possible centrally located to support children to attend independently if they wish. Venues and premises used for delivery must be fully accessible. Families are encouraged to provide transport to and from activities, however, where this is not possible transport may be required.

Please read all supporting documentation prior to completing the online selection questionnaire and dcoumentation.

BMBC require the following completing and returning :

Categories 1 & 2

  1. Online YORtender Selection Questionnaire – Stage One
  2. Part Four – Quality Criteria Response Document – Stage Two
  3. Part Six –Short Breaks DPS Agreement

Category 2 Only

  1. Part 5 – Price Response Document

Please be aware that when a new DPS round opens you will be automatically notified even if you have already submitted your response/successful.  There is no way to stop alerting DPS members of each monthly round.
