Estimated timing for further notices to be published:

VI.3) Additional information

1) NHS England as a contracting authority established the Health Systems Support Framework during 2018. The HSSF acts as an umbrella arrangement for all framework agreements established for services within the scope of the HSSF and indicated as being part of the HSSF arrangements;

2) The current framework agreement is for the service lines set out within this contract notice, as further described in the ITT documents and will form part of the HSSF;

3) NHS England intends to establish this framework agreement for use by or on behalf of itself and other UK public sector bodies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland (including any future successor organisation(s) to the functions exercised by any such organisation(s)). It is also anticipated that non-contracting authorities will be permitted to access the framework agreement;

4) The framework agreement may be accessed by the public sector bodies listed within the ITT documents, to the extent that they are engaged in the management and/or support of the health, care and/or wellbeing of populations within the UK or for which they are responsible;

5) Reference to health and/or social care services within this notice and the ITT documentation includes but is not limited to: primary care services, secondary care services, mental health services, community care services, tertiary care services, social care services and public health services;

6) Any interested suppliers will be required to register via our online portal at: https://nhsengland.bravosolution.co.uk/web/login.html (Project reference: tender — 4185 — HSSF — 2019) where the ITT documents will be accessible. A single ITT has been set up (ITT reference: ITT — 758 — HSSF — 2019) covering all service requirements. Bidders must register for this ITT where they are interested in bidding to provide any of the services within the scope of this framework. This portal will be the channel used for issue of further information relating to this ITT;

7) It is expected that the HSSF and services within the scope of the HSSF will be refreshed regularly. Each refresh will be the subject of a new contract notice published in OJEU allowing new organisations to bid for a place on the framework from the refresh date. For existing accredited entities, the refresh process has been streamlined, allowing previous accredited capabilities to be carried forward.

8) This framework agreement will be awarded for 4 years. However from the point that a service line within the HSSF is refreshed, it is anticipated that the framework agreement covering that refreshed service line will be accessed by any participating authorities wishing to use the HSSF for those services. Further competitions that have commenced prior to a refresh date may be concluded;

9) It is anticipated that where the call-off requirements of a participating framework customer fall under more than one service line, suppliers of those services will be able to submit a bid with another accredited supplier or suppliers on the framework agreement where in combination the suppliers are appointed to all the relevant service lines. This will strengthen and streamline the response to customers of the framework. When submitting any such bid the supplier and such supplier(s) shall do so either:

(a) as co-bidders and such suppliers will be jointly and severally liable for each and every obligation and liability under the relevant Call-Off Contract; or

(b) with one of the suppliers as a prime contractor (contracting with the relevant procuring customer) and subcontracting obligations to the other suppliers as their sub-contractors.

10) For the avoidance of doubt any suppliers submitting a joint bid must have been appointed to the framework agreement for the relevant service lines which they are to provide in the relevant bid submitted. No supplier shall be allowed to deliver services and capabilities that they have not been accredited to do so.

VI.4) Procedures for review

VI.4.1) Review body

VI.4.3) Review procedure
