HCC Jun 17 Pre-Procurement Market Engagement for the Provision of an Adult Mental Health Out of Hours Crisis Service in Hertfordshire.
Hertfordshire County Council (the ‘Council’) is carrying out Pre-Procurement Market Engagement (‘PPME’) in relation to an adult mental health crisis service to allow out of hours access to Service Users during times of crisis.
The Council will consider the feedback received to help inform the Council's options and further decision making. For the avoidance of doubt, this stage of the project is not part of a formal procurement process and the Council is not committing, at this stage, to carrying out such a process.
Participation or non-participation in the PPME shall not prevent any provider participating in a potential future procurement, nor is it intended that any information supplied as part of the PPME shall place any provider at an advantage in a potential procurement process.
Participation in the PPME will be at each organisation's own cost. No expense in responding to this PPME will be reimbursed by the Council.
Should the Council proceed with a procurement process, it is anticipated that a new contract will have an initial term of 2 years with an option to extend for a further 1 year at the Council's sole discretion. The estimated total value covers these 3 years. The start date for the Service is due to be 1.4.2018. It is anticipated the Service will still need to provide a minimum of four bases allowing fair access across the County and at least four nights a week opening times.
