Contract with NL Group for management of Locums etc

John Jacobs made this Freedom of Information request to Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Northern Lincolnshire and Goole Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,

I understand this contract was a pilot and that on this basis you did not need to go out to Tender. The pilot is lasting longer than some framework agreements. Was it the intention when you started the pilot that it would last this long?

Can you outline the objectives of the pilot and indicate how far those objectives have been achieved.

I understand the pilot has gone on now for over 3 years. Can you confirm when you will put the contract out for tender.

Yours faithfully,

John Jacobs

Dear foi (NORTHERN LINCOLNSHIRE AND GOOLE NHS FOUNDATION TRUST),

Your response is completely unacceptable. you cannot award a contract outside the OJEU regulations simply because you are awaiting a suitable framework.

You can put the existing arrangement out to tender without going through a framework if you wish to keep going with it.

Should you not announce a date when the pilot will end, and when you will put the tender out legal proceedings will start.

Yours sincerely,

John Jacobs

Dear John

 

Thank you for your email below.

 

We do not believe there is a Freedom of information issue with the
response provided (attached), the issue cited is in relation to
procurement regulations rather than freedom of information so we do not
believe there is a requirement for an internal review.

 

The plan is to use the multi-disciplinary framework RM3711 from Crown
Commercial Services to procure a replacement contract, a project meeting
is taking place on 13^th October to discuss the procurement timetable.

 

Kind regards
