II.2.4) Description of the procurement

This is not a call for competition.

Glasgow City Council will be tendering for provider partners to form an Alliance. Provider partners will be expected to come together themselves in a pre-formed group to make a joint bid, which will evidence their ability to work collaboratively to deliver the outcomes of the Alliance. The successful pre-formed group will then form an Alliance with the Council. Experience suggests that the optimum size of an effective Alliance would be between six to eight partners, including the commissioning partner.

17/11/2017

Section IV: Procedure

IV.1) Description

IV.1.8) Information about Government Procurement Agreement (GPA)

The procurement is covered by the Government Procurement Agreement: Yes

Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3) Additional information

The transformational change agenda will require a comprehensive modernisation and re-alignment of provision in the city which may result in new service development and/or withdrawal from existing service models. All Alliance provider partners will be able to deliver purchased services directly and partner(s) will have the capacity to sub-contract with non- Alliance providers, if required.

In scope, within the budget, will be all existing homelessness purchased services for people aged 16 years+ who are experiencing homelessness, including:

- Emergency Accommodation services

- Supported Accommodation services

- Resettlement Accommodation

- Care Homes

- Flexible Community Outreach services (including housing support)

- Day services

- Street Outreach services

- Intensive accommodation & support services (housing first approach , alcohol outreach and non-abstinence accommodation services)

- Youth Homelessness Services

The Council delivers its statutory homelessness functions under the Direction of the Glasgow City Integration Joint Board; and works together with NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, in which capacity these two parties are known as the Glasgow City Health and Social Care Partnership (HSCP). The Alliance will cover all three of the City’s Health and Social Care Partnership localities.

The annual contract value will vary over the lifetime of this contract (7-10) years, as the target outcomes and change agenda are achieved.

The available funding for year one will be in the region of 20,000,000GBP.

The funding envelope will reduce over the lifetime of the contract, the value of which will be determined by the financial settlement from the Scottish Government. Current planning assumptions indicate a reduction in budget of approximately 2m(GBP) in each of years 2 and 3.

Future funding changes will be notified to the Alliance by the Council in advance of each financial year to allow for action plans to be developed.

Monday 11th December 1.30-3.00pm at the Burgh Court Hall, 40 John Street, Glasgow, G1 1JL.

Names of representatives wishing to attend should be sent to Jennie McCormack (jennifer.mccormack@glasgow.gov.uk) by Wednesday 6th December at the latest.

22/06/2018 13:22Statement to the Market re' Review of Procurement Strategy for Re-Design of Homelessness Service

Following a procurement strategy review, the Prior Information Notice (PIN) published by GCC on 23/09/2017 in relation to the procurement of a re-designed Homelessness Service for Glasgow via the creation of an Alliance Partnership will be superseded by a new notice to commence the procurement procedure.

The updated notification will be published in due course, but in the meantime GCC wishes to inform the market that it intends to procure the re-designed Homelessness Service under the Light Touch Regime provisions of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015. Further details relating to the form of tender competition, including a brief description of the contract, the conditions for participation, and the main features of the award procedure will be more fully described within the relevant notice.

At the moment, GCC envisages that it will adopt a tender procedure involving successive stages to accommodate some form of negotiation or dialogue with participants rather than following an open or restricted procedure.
