What Newham PCT hopes to get out of this event To open a dialogue with the providers in the marketplace. Ensure that any approach to market is acceptable to providers. The more engaged bidders are with the process, the more likely the chance of a provider – friendly approach to market.
PCTs & Other Public Procurement • Public Procurement is not like other types of procurement ... • Public funds • Often no marketplace (or developing) • Processes to follow • Outcome impacts health of population • Best practice = understand market, engage with market.
The purpose of the RFI ... • This is not pre-qualification, or a Tender • It is not mandatory to attend the event. • There is no obligation whatsoever on those that do attend to continue their involvement thereafter. • This event is about the PCT understanding the market. • It is about Providers understanding requirements. • Not attending does not prevent involvement at a later stage. NB: Supply2health doesn’t have a ‘market analysis’ option.
Market Analysis Examples: • Duration • Premises • Equipment • Health promotion • Staff • Delivery location • Engaging with key groups...
