Description of the contract
The Department would like to engage with a service provider to continue to deliver the operation, the web hosting and technical support of the Alcohol Learning Centre. The Alcohol Learning Centre – ALC (www.alcohollearningcentre.org.uk) launched in November 2008 as a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all things related to reducing alcohol-related health harm. The ALC has been operating for nearly 4 years and is well used by local areas to support planning and commissioning. An evaluation carried out in 2009 found that over half (58%) discovered the site overall to be good with just under half finding the site excellent (42%). No one found the site to be either unsatisfactory or poor. The ALC is a key resource to support the Local Government in delivering their new public health responsibilities in relation to health improvement and for the NHS in reducing alcohol related health harm, especially within Every Contact Counts and the Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention Programme (QIPP). However, to remain an effective tool, the ALC needs to remain a live site, updating the latest information and providing an active hub for local leads to use. This contract is for 1 year only.
