Leicester City Council and Leicestershire County Council invite Tenders for the provision of a Probation Health Trainers Service. In this instance, Leicester City Council is leading this joint procurement on behalf of both Authorities.

We are seeking to commission a service provider to deliver a health trainers service to offenders on community orders or license across both Local Authority populations (within Leicester and Leicestershire). Health Trainers services support adults who wish to make a change towards a healthier lifestyle but who are unlikely to make and maintain this without individual support.

The Authorities wish to ensure that procurement opportunities are open to small and micro local enterprises and voluntary and community sector organisations and appreciate the very important role these play in the local economy. Tenders from these organisations are particularly welcomed.

The proposed Contract will be for an initial period of 3 years to commence on 1st April 2022, with an option to extend, subject to satisfactory performance outcomes and agreement by the Authorities, for a further period or periods, up to a total of 24 months, taking the contract term, including all optional extensions, to a maximum of 5 years.

It is the Authorities' preliminary view that TUPE is likely to apply in respect of this Contract.

Leicester City Council is conducting this procurement under the Light Touch Regime for Social and Other Specific Services, as set out in the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (PCR), at Section 7 (Regulations 74 to 77) and Schedule 3. The procurement process will not be conducted under the Public Contract Regulations 2015; however, it will be similar to that of an Open procedure. The Process will, unlike an Open Procedure, include the flexibility, as allowed under the Light Touch Regime with various evaluation stages as detailed in this Invitation to Tender documentation.

Please refer to the Invitation to Tender documentation for further details.
