II.1.3)Type of contract
Sefton Council intends to secure the services of experienced and suitably qualified organisations to deliver a residential medically managed detoxification service for substance users resident in Sefton.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Sefton Council wish to procure, through an OJEU Light-Touch Regime tender process, a residential medically managed detoxification service that meets local needs, in order to award a new contract. Submissions will be invited from suitably experienced and qualified organisations to deliver this service as the sole contractor. Subcontracting will not be acceptable, and will lead to a fail at the pass/fail section. A residential bedded unit must be available within 15 miles of the Sefton border in order to pass at the pass/fail section.
This is due to the fact that service users will be residents of Sefton and it is believed that individuals are more likely to undergo a successful detoxification if they are able to maintain social and family networks during this critical treatment period. Additionally a significant number of individuals are likely to have either a dual diagnoses which require external medical treatment or may need contact with adult social care or housing support on discharge into the community, consequently a service within or close to Sefton is best placed to facilitate these important referrals.
This service will cater for adults 18 years and over and the value of the contract will include the cost of all medications required by the service user. The local authority would expect the provider to work with existing partners and use existing referral pathways that have been developed across the drug and alcohol treatment system including those between adult social care, housing support services, hospitals and specialist health care providers, other residential detoxification services and residential rehabilitation programmes.
The contract will have a duration of 5 years from the commencement date with 2 x 12-month extension options available.
This procurement is being undertaken in accordance with section 7 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, also know as the ‘Light Touch’ regime under the EU Procurement Directives.
II.2.7)Duration of the contract, framework agreement or dynamic purchasing system
The contract will either be renewed after 60, 72 or 84 months dependent on whether some or all of the extension options are taken or not.
