UK Sheffield Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, trading as North of England NHS Commercial Procurement Collaborative ("NOE CPC")

NOE CPC are seeking engagement with providers of Advocacy Services to the NHS with a view to help inform the outputs of a future procurement of a framework agreement for these and other aligned services. <br/><br/>Everyone has a legal right to advocacy and public authorities are responsible for arranging independent advocacy services to assist people making or intending to make complaints, effectively supporting individuals during assessments, care planning, safeguarding and reviews and collaborating with families, friends, carers, commissioners and providers. <br/><br/>Our intention at present is to award a multi-lotted framework agreement, for the services detailed below: <br/><br/>• Independent advocates for patients using social care services (as per the Care Act 2014 and the Care and Support statutory guidance)<br/><br/>• Independent mental capacity advocates (as per the Mental Capacity Act 2005 and its Code of Practice)<br/><br/>• Independent mental health advocates (as per the Mental Health Act 1983 and its Code of Practice)<br/><br/>• Advocacy for Adult Secure Services <br/>Secure services provide treatment for adults aged 18-years and over with mental disorders, these include mental illness (MI), personality disorder (PD) and neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) including learning disabilities (LD) and autism. There are three levels of secure services with specific criteria for each, High, Medium and Low.<br/><br/>• Advocacy for Children and Young People <br/>While it is anticipated that this procedure is for children and young people making or intending to make a complaint, it covers representations which are not complaints. For example, children and young people should be able to secure the support of an advocate in putting forward <br/>representations for a change to be made in the service they receive, or the establishment they live in, without this having to be framed first as a specific complaint.<br/><br/>• Advocacy for Women’s’ Health <br/>Although women in the UK on average live longer than men, women spend a significantly greater proportion of their lives in ill health and disability when compared with men. <br/><br/>Not enough focus is placed on women-specific issues like miscarriage or menopause, and women are under-represented when it comes to important clinical trials. <br/><br/>There are also far too many cases where women’s voices have not been listened to; the responses to the Women’s Health Strategy for England from the Department of Health & Social Care found 84% of respondents felt that this was the case.<br/><br/>We are in the very early stages of consideration of this agreement, and would welcome feedback from the providers of these services as to the merits of this approach, including any perceived barriers to engagement with such a process, whether the services included are sufficiently extensive/comprehensive or whether there are any other elements we should be looking to include. <br/><br/>All information received at this stage will of course be handled confidentially, with a view to informing our next steps and the ultimate outputs from this agreement. Further engagement may take place following the responses to this PIN, prior to the commencement of a competitive process. <br/><br/>Interested providers are asked to register on the portal and express their interest via project C251453 Patient Advocacy Services and entering any feedback via the response envelope within the project.<br/><br/>The Atamis portal can be accessed at: <br/>https://health-family.force.com/s/Welcome <br/><br/>It is free to register on the portal.

Concessionary Travel Applications Decision Maker
NUTS: UK UK Department for Transport

The appeals casework is demand-led depending on the number of appeals submitted each year by bus operators. The contract awarded for this work will cover appeals from 2024/25 to 2026/27, as well as a small number of remaining appeals from previous years. DfT have recently updated the reimbursement guidance and calculator, which may potentially lead to an initial increased number of appeals in 2024/25, and possibly 2026/27. DfT are also undertaking a review of the appeals process, in order to ensure that it is up to date and works as well as possible. The Decision Maker will be kept informed on any updates to the appeals process. We do not expect changes to the core requirement below.5.2 The criteria required to be met for this contract are set out below. Bidders will need to demonstrate in their proposal examples of how and when they have employed these skills to enable the Department to assess the Decision Maker’s skills:5.2.1 The Decision Maker will be required to analyse evidence submitted by bus operators and TCAs and to make a judgement that will determine the level of reimbursement due.5.2.2 In reviewing the evidence submitted, the Decision Maker will need to be able to identify and resolve any legal issues raised.5.2.3 The Decision Maker will be expected to familiarise themselves with the latest version of DfT’s reimbursement guidance and reimbursement calculator and make use of this alongside any other robust additional evidence provided by operators and TCAs. 5.2.4 Quality assurance of the Decision Maker’s analysis will be provided by DfT economists and lawyers.5.2.5 Legislation gives the Decision Maker powers to hold an oral hearing to bring both parties to an appeal before them to give evidence, although it is at the Decision Maker's discretion whether to do so, as there is currently no obligation to hold an oral hearing.5.2.6 For each appeal case, the Decision Maker will be required to complete a written determination report following quality assurance of the Decision Maker’s analysis and by DfT economists and lawyers. When a determination of an appeal is complete the Contract Manager will forward this document to both parties involved in the appeal.5.2.7 The Decision Maker may be required to comment on revisions made by the Department’s officials to its reimbursement guidance and reimbursement calculator.5.2.8 The Decision Maker may be required to suggest improvements to concessionary travel guidance and the appeals process, or to assist with any reviews of the guidance.5.2.9 The Decision Maker may be required to attend meetings with external stakeholders. This could include reimbursement training and/or feedback sessions with local authorities and/or bus operators.5.3 For accountability and consistency purposes, the Decision Makers will need to be nominated individuals. Proposals should therefore make clear which individual is being put forward for the role and provide relevant information with a Curriculum Vitae clearly showing the nominated person’s experience.5.4 Under the current legislation, bus operators are required to submit appeals within 56 days of the commencement or variation of concessionary travel schemes in TCA areas. As concessionary travel schemes usually commence from 1st April each year, this means the volume of the appeals caseload for that year is usually known by 27th May. However, it should be noted that negotiations between both parties continue throughout the appeals process and often lead to agreement and withdrawal of the appeal before determination is required.5.5 Based on past appeals volumes, we estimate that an experienced Decision Maker would take on average, between three and five days to complete a standard case. However, if the issues are complex, or the Decision Maker is new to the subject area, it may take longer to complete a case.5.6 The appointed Decision Maker will receive

NEX23/59 Legal Services for the Washington Metro Loop
UK Newcastle upon Tyne Nexus

Nexus requires suitably qualified and experienced legal advisors, who will be appointed to a zero-value eight-year framework to support Nexus on a project to plan, construct, commission and operate passenger services on the Washington Metro Loop (WML). Subject to approval of the Outline Business Case (OBC) by Government in due course, the legal retainer is expected to encompass the advice required to (i) prepare the content of the OBC; (ii) implement the agreed strategies set out in the OBC; (iii) deliver the OBC strategies and, in turn, commence operations on the WML in years ahead. The exact scope of work during the framework term will be subject to the timely progress of the project.The legal advisors will be required to have strong levels of recent experience across rail infrastructure projects, including but not limited to experience in the following areas:• Strategies in connection with land acquisition and consents;• Planning matters including permitted development rights in a rail context;• Rail regulatory matters including licensing, consents and communications with regulatory bodies;• Rail operations;• Interfaces with Network Rail as a key delivery partner in the project, to include areas such as infrastructure management, track access, station leases and train operations;• Project governance and communications with project stakeholders including local authority and combined authority partners, DfT and MHCLG among others;• Project funding;• Procurement, with the potential need for additional rolling stock as part of the project deliverables;• Environmental and/or social issues connected with the project;• Rail construction and engineering contracts; and• Project insurances.The WML ProjectThe WML is currently funded by the North East Combined Authority (NECA) but the aspiration is it will become a flagship project of the North East Mayoral Combined Authority (NEMCA) following the election of a North East mayor in May 2024.The WML aims to enhance connectivity and accessibility across the South of Tyne and Wearside area through the restoration of former railway alignments including the Leamside Line. Closed to passenger services in 1964 before becoming entirely disused approximately 30 years later, the Leamside Line connects with the East Coast Mainline and Durham Coast Line at Tursdale and Pelaw respectively. However, it is important to note that the Washington Metro Loop would only require reinstatement of part of the Leamside Line, from Pelaw to north of Penshaw, and not its full opening. Any involvement of the Washington Metro Loop in the further reinstatement of the Leamside Line is likely to be limited to inclusion of passive provision for heavy rail traffic and management of project interfaces where necessary, and that is reflected in the scope of this framework let.The Strategic Outline Business Case (SOBC) for the project states constructing the WML would bring economic, societal, and environmental benefits to the area by:• Creating nearly 8 million additional passenger journeys per year;• Giving Washington - the fourth largest town without access to a rail service - new connections across Tyne and Wear;• Reducing carbon emissions by nearly 87,000 tonnes per year;• Providing reliable and resilient travel;• Focusing on places in need of 'levelling up'; and• Increasing the feeling of 'pride in place' and putting locations 'back on the map'.The Washington Metro Loop will link existing stations at Pelaw and South Hylton via Washington. The OBC will also review options for further extensions enabling direct services to South Shields from Washington and Sunderland respectively. The project will require track works, new stations, additional services, signalling and traction power. Three station locations have been earmarked on the WML although the number an

The Evaluation of Market Ready agricultural Technology Options (TEMaRTO)
UK London Defra Network eTendering Portal

The Delivering Clean Growth through Sustainable Intensification (CGSI) project has been critical in developing a rigorous, evidence-based decarbonisation pathway for agriculture that demonstrates compliance with the 5th and 6th carbon budget (CB) periods. This work directly informed development of the Carbon Budget Delivery Plan (Department for Energy Security and Net Zero, 2023) and planning for Sustainable Farming Incentive (SFI) standards.<br/><br/>In preparation for the legal establishment of CB7 (2038 to 2042) it is time to refresh and update the evidence of the CGSI. We propose that this refresh looks to build on the successes of CGSI by filling evidence gaps around currently unquantified or exploratory measures in the CBDP, identify new mitigation technologies and innovations, refresh the trajectory in preparation for CB7, and explore potential for a long-term service agreement to test and implement evidence-based policy decisions. In advance, the successful contractor will receive a list of the unquantified/exploratory measures (also found in the published Net Zero growth plan), but also encouraged to explore other alternative emerging solutions. The refresh should adopt and enforce Maximum Technical Potential (MTP), ensuring the MTPs given for each measure are robust and credible. (MTP represents the maximum carbon savings that would be possible if we ignore limitations of cost, logistics and other non-market barriers). In reality the effective potential will be significantly lower or take longer than 30 years to deliver (i.e., not necessarily contributing to the 2050 target).
