The contract duration will be 2.5 years and total contract value will be in the region of £145,000 and is expected to cover the cost of salaries and travel expenses only.It is possible that this potential contract opportunity may be subject to a competitive procurement process to enable GMHSCP to identify the most suitable and qualified provider to deliver the service and at this stage, GMHSCP is only looking to gauge potential interest. Any such procurement process is likely to commence in early 2019 to enable service commencement in Spring 2019. Responses to this Expression of Interest will be used to inform the contract approach. A lack of interest being expressed in response to this invitation, may be taken as evidence by GMHSCP that a competitive process is not required.
