Description

THIS IS NOT A CALL FOR COMPETITION
SOFT MARKET TESTING

As part of our duty under the Care Act and Children’s and Family Act to develop and reshape the market, Leicester City Council Adult Social Care (the Authority) is trying to understand the current provision of services and future delivery. The Authority wishes to ascertain what level of interest there is in providing services, for daytime and early evening support and activities for people with complex needs, with learning disabilities/physical disabilities in the community.

Therefore, the Authority is undertaking a soft market test. This gives potential providers and other stakeholders the opportunity to express their interests and provide their views about the potential service model and service specification principles. As this is a soft market test, this is an information gathering exercise only at this stage. The Authority welcome responses from those organisations who currently provide this type of service or those who are interested in developing the service. The commissioners will use the information to appraise options and develop the service specification if required.

This process does not constitute a formal tender or other competitive bidding process and will not result in the letting of a contract. The Authority is using this process solely to test the market to gather information and ascertain the level of interest in this particular service. There are therefore no formal criteria which the Authority will use to judge your responses and it is not our intention to provide any feedback.

The Authority would encourage you to respond if you feel this is something your organisation may have an interest in.

If you would like to participate in this Soft Market Testing, then please complete the Soft Market Testing questionnaire located below and then email your completed questionnaire to the email address procurement-asc@leicester.gov.uk with the subject heading: ‘Completed SMT Q – SA’ before or by no later than 12:00 hours on 14th April 2020.

Please note this is not a call for competition. The Authority welcomes the opportunity to engage with and appreciate your assistance in providing us with your views. However, you should note that in any subsequent procurement exercise, the Authority will have to comply with our legal obligations and that neither the intention nor the purpose of this soft market testing exercise is to confer any advantage upon its participation in any future procurement process.
