II.8)Additional information:
Norfolk County Council is looking to procure and implement a joined-up social care information system for Adults, Children's, Finance and Contracts that will meet current and future business requirements, and enable more integrated approaches with the whole family, transition from child to adult, contracts, commitments and forecasting.
The introduction of a new system will form the platform on which savings and integration can be developed with our many partner agencies, and on which service improvements can be delivered for our 3 000+ system users and the community we serve. The County Council strategy has informed the following key priorities for the project:
— Integration with Health and other partners is key, reflecting our integrated commissioning and delivery in Adults, including direct working together under section 75, and the new locality-based multi-agency hub approach in Children's.
— Supporting vulnerable people — the solution must be an enabler for our corporate outcome framework — that all vulnerable people who live, work, learn and are cared for will be safe; and that vulnerable people are more resilient and independent.
— Simplicity with straightforward recording, automated workflows and readily accessible information, in order to improve efficiency and release practitioner time while supporting our compliance with relevant legislation.
— Information and our use of it drives the system; information sharing with partners underpins commissioning and delivery within a ‘whole system’ approach. We also need to make citizens' own records more accessible to them.
— Transformation — from the national ‘Personalised Health and Care 2020’ digital roadmap through to local initiatives, we will require a system and supplier that are flexible and offer innovative solutions.
— Our strategic ICT&IM architecture requires integration of the social care system — with Identity Management, the Information Hub, Records Management, Customer Relationship Management, portals, and a granular access control model — in order to support the corporate programme and exploit wider benefits.

We are therefore looking to work with a supplier who has the capability to deliver to this agenda, respond to government and legislative changes and develop the product innovatively. Suppliers are invited to contact scsprocurement@norfolk.gov.uk for a discussion.
