VI.3) Additional information

This Procurement is on behalf of the National Health Service, namely NHS England, all Clinical Commissioning Groups, NHS Trusts, NHS Foundation Trusts and each of their successor bodies. A list of organisations can be found at:

(Referred to from IV.1.11) - The services in scope of this procurement process are healthcare services which fall under “social and other specific services” in Section 7 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (“PCR”). In accordance with Regulation 76 PCR, the process is to set up a closely mirror a framework agreement and the procurement of it will follow a procedure like the open procedure. However, NHS England and the Contracting Authorities using the framework are only bound by the parts of the PCR that specifically apply to social and other specific services. For the avoidance of doubt, the rules that apply to the open procedure under Regulation 27 and framework agreements under Regulation 33 do not apply to this procurement. All providers that meet the minimum requirements set out under the procurement process (which will include both traditional selection and evaluation criteria on a pass/fail basis) will be appointed to the framework agreement. There will be no maximum number of providers appointed.

To access the ITT, please go to the following link https://uk.eu-supply.com/login.asp?B=UK and then "Quote/tender 47058 - NHSE ICF (Refresh) - NHS England Increasing Capacity Framework (Refresh)". NHS England reserves the right to conduct any number of framework refreshes throughout the term of the Framework Agreement. A refresh will allow verification of existing providers’ continuing ability to meet requirements and will also allow new entrants to be appointed to the ICF.
