Market Consultation Event: Social Care Research and Information Tool

Newcastle City Council, acting on behalf of NEPO and its Member Authorities, are planning the procurement of an online research and information tool which will be used predominately by Adults' and Children's Social Care professionals.

The tool will allow participating authorities to access information, research, example case studies and training relevant to Adults' and Children's Social Care topics. It is envisaged that the online tool will be accessed via subscriptions or licences. In addition to this, there is a requirement for tailored learning and development, including seminars, webinars, face to face support and e-learning modules.

In preparation for the procurement exercise, a market consultation event will take place on Wednesday, 19 September 2019 from 10.00 to 13.00 at Newcastle Civic Centre.

The event will include:
  • detailed discussions with providers regarding commissioning intentions
  • sharing initial thinking around a lotting structure for the collaborative solution
  • an indicative procurement timeline
  • a summary of next steps.
