II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Council wishes to work with an organisation or combination of organisations who are prepared to share in the risk and reward of helping the Council transform by providing strategic input to our transofmration activities and broader departmental objectives as well as delivering TEC services. The Council’s ambition is to maintain its leading role in the development and delivery of TEC services but also to push further, making technology a central plank in the delivery of social care services and our broader service offer to citizens as well as offering these functions to a wider set of authorities and organisations. It is envisioned that our partner organisation will provide private sector insight, drive and ambition and will work jointly with the Council to both develop our innovative approach to service delivery for eligible social care clients and to become more commercial in our outlook and activity.

The social care landscape is changing significantly and the work Hampshire County Council has already undertaken within this sphere and across its other areas of activity mean it is already leading change in how services are delivered, including sales activity to the public and other authorities and agencies. Our expectation is that as part of this opportunity our partner will work with us to further enhance the Council’s portfolio, sharing both the risk and reward of business-to-business and business-to-consumer activity.

The transformation of social care is ongoing and there continue to be many challenges. Whilst the Council sees the central plank of this partnership being TEC and associated activity, we recognise and require that our partner will play a central role in the strategic development of our business into the future. This will centre on TEC but will also encompass the Council’s broader transformation agendas. Any partner must be able to demonstrate that they are able to operate as a central, highly efficient and innovative delivery agent as well as delivering broader insights, guidance and partnerships.
