The Council on behalf of Worcestershire Community Safety Partnerships, Worcestershire Safeguarding Adults Board (WSAB), and Worcestershire Safeguarding Children Board (WSCB) wishes to develop an approved list of independent chairs and authors to undertake statutory reviews and case reviews.

Chairs and authors for Domestic Homicide Reviews, Safeguarding Adult Reviews and Serious Case Reviews/Case Reviews have previously been commissioned on an ad hoc basis. The development of an approved list would provide a more efficient and effective process with a greater level of assurance enabling reviews to commence in a timely manner.

Worcestershire County Council is advertising the opportunity for Review Chairs and Authors to apply to join a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).

In order to join the DPS, a Supplier will be required to meet exclusion and selection criteria as set out in the standard Selection Questionnaire (SQ). Successful suppliers will be admitted on to the relevant DPS categories and will be invited to participate in future tendering opportunities via mini-competitions.

The duration of this DPS will be from 26th September 2017 to 25th September 2025.

Full details of the opportunity and instructions regarding how to apply are given in these documents.
