09.06.2021 Please note we have become aware of some formatting issues with the Tender Questionnaire, Section B, Part 12 and the Excel document - Financial Model Template. Under Proforma 3 – hourly rate, cells C20-22 are currently protected.
UPDATE - Financial Model Template now revised and protection removed and uploaded as a standalone document below. Bidders who have already completed the original template may wish to add any “other” lines under comments in column K.
North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group (NELCCG) wishes to continue and evolve the provision for Independent Advocacy Services in the borough of North East Lincolnshire.
The Contract will be initially set from 1st October 2021 till 30th September 2024 with the possibility of extending the term beyond the initial contracted duration by up to 2 [two] years with mutual agreement from the Provider and NELCCG. This would be dependent on successful achievement of contract outcomes and funding available to support the contract from commissioners.
It is likely TUPE will apply to the transfer of staff undertaking the current service provision; however, it will be the responsibility of bidders to seek appropriate legal advice at the appropriate time.
Interested parties wishing to participate in the Procurement should register and download a tender pack and submit an application using the supplied documentation.
The deadline for receipt of completed tenders is 12 noon on Friday 11th June 2021
