II.1.4) Short description

Background

The Council had 1,128 homeless households living in temporary accommodation as of 30 September 2023. The purpose of the service is to ensure homeless clients are housed in suitable, good quality, secure and safe accommodation that meets the standards as set out in in the procurement documentation. Clients will be supported to participate and engage/re-engage with the community, tackle worklessness and contribute to the local community.

The requirement

To ensure the provision of nightly purchased accommodation can match the demands of the Housing Needs service and promote the provision of high-quality accommodation for the residents of Islington.

The Council has a statutory duty towards under the homelessness legislation as laid down in the 1985 and 1996 Housing Acts and the 2017 Homelessness Reduction Act. The ready supply of accommodation will also allow the Council to fulfil its duties under the Care Act and Children’s Act, and offering temporary accommodation to clients who have No Recourse to Public Funds (NRPF).

Providers will be responsible for delivering the supply of properties that are local to Islington. For the purpose of this contract opportunity, the Council defines a local property as a property that is:

• in the borough of Islington;

• located in a neighbouring borough i.e. Hackney, Camden, Haringey; and/or

• is accessible to Islington via public transport with a journey time no longer than one hour.

Our mission is to create a more equal Islington, where everyone who lives here has the opportunity and an equal chance to thrive. We are all at the heart of driving this forward. But it’s not just what we do, it’s the way that we do it. This is underpinned by four values which spell out ‘CARE’ and represent what we think public service is all about: being Collaborative, Ambitious, Resourceful and Empowering.

This service supports the Council’s objectives to:

• support people experiencing homelessness

• reduce rough sleeping in the borough

• ensure decent and safe accommodation

• challenge inequality

There is no maximum number of providers that will be party to the framework agreement. Call-off contracts from the framework agreement shall follow the terms of the framework agreement including how a call-off contract is concluded. How a call-off contract is concluded is explained within the procurement documentation.

Lots

This framework agreement is not being split into lots as the Council’s sole requirement is for providers of nightly purchased accommodation.

TUPE [Transfer of Undertakings (Protection of Employment) Regulations]

Term of the Framework Agreement

The initial term of the framework agreement will be forty eight (48) months from an estimated start date in March 2024 with provision to extend on one or more occasions not exceeding a further twenty four (24) months in total.

Call-off contracts and placements from this framework may last longer than the framework itself. The framework agreement will also contain provision allowing the Council to terminate any time on notice either with or without the mutual termination of any call-off contracts entered into prior to termination.
