1 ANNEX F London Focus Group Tender - Commissioning Support Services ITT Clarification Questions: FINAL Summary7 Srl. Question Response 1 According to the memorandum of information, the draft ITT was supposed to have been issued 25 th October. It was issued 29 th October. Please can you clarify whether the deadline for bidder clarification questions has moved, or whether it remains 5 th November? 2 Please can you let me know if you are in a position to let me know where we scored well and where we scored not so good? The period for CQs has been extended to close-of-business on 7 th November. However, the tender return date of 29th November will not change. Sorry, beyond confirming pre-qualification, the processes we have established for the procurement do not provide for feedback on successful PQQ submissions unless, in seeking to respond to legitimate requests for specific clarification of the ITT, this becomes necessary and appropriate. 3 Are we able to see indicative information on the likely TUPE transfers that Refer to PQQ clarification #1. could occur, should we be asked to deliver this service. 4 If not, are we able to price our bid, subject to TUPE? Yes. 5 What proportion of the referrals to the London Trusts are tertiary referrals, ie. consultant to consultant. This information is not readily available - if critical to your bid, state the dependency & likely impact. 6 Are the current contracts independently held by each CCG or are they This information is given in the ITT (p. 6). associates to a contract held by another CCG? 7 In Section 4, paragraph 17, reference is made to Right Care or any successor organisation. Please advise the nature of information you are seeking for a compliant response. We would be looking to see that in their comparative analysis and commissioning tools Service providers demonstrate awareness of these types of national benchmarks and use of them where appropriate ie looking at unwarranted variation in services commissioned and that where there is variation in age/need profiles for each CCG they could respond to sensitivity requirements. It is envisaged that this would be achieved through the Service provider's individual meetings with CCGs via their reviews of activity and contract performance.

2 8 Please can you advise the date at which the Final ITT will be issued in light of the extension of the CQ period to 7 th November. Will this still be 8 th November 2013, per section 3.1 of the ITT? 9 Please can you confirm who the Lead Commissioner is/will be for the contract? 10 Thank you for providing the information in relation to the estimated annual contract values. Please could you provide any additional information with regard to the Services covered/current performance in year in so far as it relates to these contracts. 11 Section 9: Financial Model ref (f) makes reference to accommodation costs. Noting the current geography over which services are currently delivered, it would be helpful to us if you could provide us with further information on the following: a) the current accommodation and its geographic dispersal and b) whether the Commissioner has any preferences for either of 1) a single local accommodation base, 2) a single remote accommodation base or 3) dispersed accommodation across the current geography - as this will impact on the costs included. 12 In line with the above, is the intent for the Provider to identify/locate an accommodation solution or does the Commissioner already have something in place? 13 We anticipate over the life of the contract, a significant number of meetings will be required. For consistency across bidder solutions, please can you provide an indication of the number of meetings we should reasonably include within our submission as well as where we might expect these to be held - given the geographic area concerned, the impact on resource/costs and with the overall objective of demonstrating a VFM solution. 14 Will the Commissioner accept any variant bids which include innovative solutions and which may demonstrate better value for money? 15 Please could you provide some further information with regard to any TUPE implications of the new contract scheduled to commence on 1 April That remains our aim but this is subject to the weight of CQs emerging from tenderers over the next 2 days and the possible impact on the final documents. At the very latest, we envisage the final ITT being sent out during the weekend of 9th/10th November. Please see the MOI & ITT. Not at this stage. Bidders are free to propose their preferred delivery model(s). See response to 6. Please read the ITT, particularly Section 4. Bidders should submit a fully compliant proposal. The Commissioner is prepared, without commitment, to consider variants offering clear and demonstrable additional benefit. This Q has previously been dealt with as a PQQ CQ.

3 We note the process for Clarification Questions in Section 3.4 of the ITT. Please can you confirm whether bidders will be notified when responses have been uploaded by the Commissioner to the website or whether it will be for bidders to regularly check the website. 17 Section 7: Service Fees and Payment. We note the intention that fees will comprise a mix of fixed and incentivised-based fees based on costs savings (ref 1b). In the case of service redesign, it may be that any savings are realised later in the process or beyond the duration of the contract period. Would the Commissioner be in acceptance of a solution which makes provision for such forecasted savings and for these to be enjoyed earlier in the contract period. 18 Please can you provide further information with regard to the CCG Commissioning Intentions for 2014/15 or provide guidance on where we can locate these. 19 We note in Section 9: Financial Model of the ITT, Section requires the model to be constructed in a format and using a software tool as specified by the Commissioner. Please can further clarification be given as to whether a format or further details will be supplied. 20 Section 9: Financial model Ref refers to indexation assumptions relating to input costs. For consistency across bidder responses, please can you confirm the indexation assumption (indice(s)) for us to use. Bidders are expected to be proactive, having been alerted to this mode of notification/promulgation (id est via the website) in the initial advertisement, the MOI, the PQQ and the ITT. Bidders are free to propose their solutions for consideration, without commitment, by the Commissioner and subject to contract. The LFG commissioning intentions (London acute providers) are available on the website and at Annex G to the Final ITT. No further clarification is available; bidders to use their experience. Please feel free to use such assumptions as you deem appropriate - but be careful to state clearly the assumptions you use. 21 Please can you confirm which DSCRO(s) the CCGs are currently aligned to?

Normally monthly, at NHS Slough CCG. 31 Will the Service Provider be required to attend CCG meetings as well as Yes.

Not available at this time. 79 Please confirm whether each of the sites have a secure server/comms room where we would be able to install equipment if required? 80 Please can you provide a contact within the local IT Service provider for us See above. to discuss the detail of any local IT provision, so that we can ensure we can price our response accordingly. 81 As a collaborative, please can you clarify what your over-arching strategic Not available at this time. quality measures/ objectives or CQUIN schemes are based on and how the various providers are currently performing against these? 82 Please can you provide details of your QIPP targets or the value of the QIPP Not necessary at this stage. schemes for each of the Acutes?

In summary, is there existing accommodation(s) available for a Provider to use. 84 We note your responses in so far as they relate to TUPE at both the PQQ NO! Refer to earlier responses. Currently, IT services are provided by the CSUs supporting the CCGs. This is a legacy issue which will need to be reviewed with the successful bidder. For the purposes of the tender, bidders should separately itemise their costs for IM&T together with such assumptions, exclusions, risks etc. as are appropriate, enabling the Commissioner to draw comparisons between competing solutions. Bidders are also reminded of the opportunities for considering solutions utilising Commissioner Responsibilities in accordance with Section 6 of the ITT. See above. Existing provision is housed in the Current Provider s own premises in London.

9 and ITT stage. To enable us to put together a robust resource and pricing solution, we need to understand the number of staff, their grade, length of service by that grouping and pension rights within that grouping. Please can this be provided. 85 We note your response to Q9 of our earlier questions. To the extent helpful, we will need to understand how we obtain the SUS and other data flows required to support the contract. DSCROs are at different stages of development across the country and to understand the existing relationships for data flows and whether there is the opportunity to offer DSCRO services ourselves to simplify the process will be quite significant to our bid. 86 With regard to the above and as referenced in Section 4: para 25, please can you elaborate on the likely sources of "other data directly received" as stated and who these might be. 87 Section 4: Ref 28 (among other paras) references monthly performance reports.

As this cost is dependent on volumes and complexity of flows, some quantification of these flows would be helpful to us in providing our response. If this information is not available, we will only be able to include a proposal based on standard, mandated national data sets. We trust this will be acceptable. 89 While we note the focus on acute contracts in the ITT, to assist us in providing quality and efficiency impacts across the system, please could you provide a map of whole service provision which includes community service providers/home care. 90 What are the clinical leadership arrangements in the LFG to support the commissioning of non-specialised care from London providers and what clinical networks do the commissioners participate in?

Yes in accordance with the ITT Section 4. Yes any assumptions to be clearly stated. Not available/necessary at this stage. Clinical leadership will be different for each CCG.

10 the collaborative require support to produce costed activity proposals for submission to providers (that is in addition to the demand modelling referred to in clauses 15 and 16 on page 14), or is the expectation that the CCGs require support in responding to provider costed proposals, or both? 92 Is there an agreed format for provider SLAM reports that Service Providers are request to work to (e.g. the requirement is set out in the contract information schedule)? And if so, do the providers all use such a format? 93 Is any non-standard reporting required e.g. on CCG-specific QIPP delivery. (We assume the reference to contract management of QIPP schemes in clause 20 on page 15 is referring to provider-wide QIPP requirements) Is there a consolidated annual version produced of each CCG s Prior Approval agreements, that will be made available to the service provider 95 Given the level of services which have transferred to NHSE - reducing the overall contract values from 130m down to 50m, has there been any agreements reached with Trusts to provide dual reporting of NHSE data to ensure transparent charging? 96 Will validation checks be required based on agreed National Identification rules or something more specific to a particular trust? sets out systems for Sus data refers to Non-PbR claims as well as PbR claims. Is there a requirement to make claims against Non-SUS data? If so, will the Service Provider be granted access to Patient Identifiable Data for Non-SUS datasets. This is set out in the contract schedules. All providers are expected to work to the standard format. The Commissioner expects the Service provider to deals with any ad hoc requests for specialist analysis and reporting to support individual CCG QIPPs. Details of each CCG s Prior Approval agreements will be made available to the Service provider. No. Generally, National validation rules are used. However, should specific rules local to a Trust arise, the Service provider will be expected to use these by ad hoc agreement with the relevant CCGs. Q 1 yes, as appropriate. Q 2 yes in accordance with information governance requirements.
