II.1.5)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)

Project management consultancy services. Business analysis consultancy services. Business and management consultancy services. General management consultancy services. Financial management consultancy services. Management-related services. Project-management services other than for construction work. Business organisation services. NHS Commissioning Support Units (CSUs) provide a wide variety of services to NHS and Local Authority commissioners and NHS and non-NHS providers of health care. A wide variety of services are offered, including (but not limited to) strategy, contracting, analytics, finance and communications. CSUs are hosted by NHS England and seek to improve outcomes, increase satisfaction and guarantee value for money from health services.
A group of six CSUs known collectively as the ‘Elis Group’ is planning to establish an OJEU compliant framework agreement through which they will be able to access a range of supporting expertise and capacity from the commercial and voluntary sector. North and East London Commissioning Support Unit is leading on the commissioning of this framework – referred to as the Elis Group Framework Agreement for the purpose of this PQQ. Membership of the Elis Group is as follows:
— NHS North & East London CSU;
— NHS Staffordshire & Lancashire CSU;
— NHS North of England CSU;
— NHS South West CSU;
— NHS Cheshire & Merseyside CSU;
— NHS South CSU.
Please note that, while Elis Group CSUs will undertake procurement via the framework, NHS England is the authority.
The Elis Group works with over 90 CCGs and provides services to a wide range of NHS and non-NHS clients nationwide. Ultimately, the Group services over 24 million people in the UK, or 44 % of the population.
On 3.3.2014 NHS England will invite providers in the market to bid for a place on the national Lead Provider Framework (LPF). The LPF will enable Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) and other customers to purchase commissioning support efficiently and will introduce quality criteria and minimum standards to the market.
The Elis Group Framework Agreement will help to ensure that the Group are always able to provide the best possible skill match to customers. In addition, the framework will enable Elis Group CSUs to procure, on a flexible basis, high-level specialist knowledge which can be speedily deployed to meet demand; a far more efficient and dynamic approach than utilisation of permanent payroll resources.
The Framework has been designed to enable Elis Group CSUs to rapidly access additional capability and capacity from a range of trusted partners, in order to provide effective and quality commissioning support to CCGs. The framework will complement Consultancy One, and the Elis Group will utilise both frameworks to ensure that the best possible skill match is always provided.
The average Elis Group Framework Agreement call off value is expected to be below GBP 500k, with many procurements having a value below GBP 200k, and we are keen to encourage small and medium-sized organisations to apply. We are looking for providers who can work with us to offer flexible, best value, innovative and responsive services to our customers in the following areas:
— Care Pathway Optimisation & Expert Knowledge;
— Patient & Public Engagement;
— Organisational Development & System Development.
The Group is also considering the potential to engage a managing agent or prime contractor to support delivery of consultancy type support from smaller, ‘niche’ consultants and third sector providers to deliver a range of highly specialist services. The intention is that the managing agent would provide limited or no services themselves, but would source and manage suppliers to deliver a specific project/objective which would be ‘called off’ the main contract periodically during the term of the agreement. The managing agent would provide efficient project and cost management but would contract with specialist niche and third sector providers to deliver the desired outcomes/outputs.
Expected managing agent market segments will include:
— Health sector specific related charities (e.g. Stroke Association, British Heart Foundation, MIND);
— Charities not directly related to a specific health sector (e.g. Age Concern, Save the Children);
— Specialist / niche consultancy organisations such as those with special interest / knowledge (e.g. Mental Health Consultants, Urgent Care Consultants, Demand Management Consultants, Research and Evaluation Consultants).
Interested organisations should express their interest by registering on Pro-contract:
