Dear Kelly Shaw

Environmental Information Regulations 2004

Thank you for your information request received on 03/03/2021.
This request is being handled under the Environmental Information
Regulations 2004.

You requested the following information:

The independent advisors PPCR have been re-appointed on st raphael estate.
When did their old contract finish and what was the process for their
Re-Appointed, where was this post advertise and how long was it advertise
for? How much are this consulstant 's being paid and when does the
contract end.

I can confirm that Brent Council holds the information you have
requested.

The old contract for PPCR finished on 31^st Jan 2021.

The process to reappoint PPCR was led by Brent Council. The process and
timeline was as follows:
 

ITLA Procurement Timetable
Dec 2nd 2020 Share procurement brief with SRV
Dec 4th 2020 Confirm availability of potential ITLAs
Dec 11th 2020 SRV to provide input to brief
 
Dec 18th 2020 Request for Quotation (RFQ) issued
Jan 4th 2021 Deadline for receipt of clarification regarding the
tender
Jan 8th 2021 Response to clarifications regarding the tender
Jan 15th 2021 RFQ submission deadline
Jan 22nd 2021 Evaluation of Bids to be completed
Jan 29th 2021 Award Contract
February 8th 2021 Contract Commencement

As this is a Low Value Contract, under Contract Standing Orders no formal
tendering procedures apply, save for a requirement to seek best value and
at least three written quotes or procurement through the Online Market
Place.  The Invitation to Tender was shared with a group of suppliers
known to the council and the community via the London Tenders portal.

The intention to procure an ITLA was first communicated to the members of
St Raphs Voice at their meeting on the 12th November 2020. The minutes for
the November meeting can be found at the St Raphael's website by accessing
the below link
[3]https://www.brent.gov.uk/your-community/...
Members of the SRV who nominated themselves to be involved in the
procurement and evaluation of the bids were then trained by procurement on
19th January 2021. 

The procurement of the ITLA was shared with residents of St Raphael’s in
the newsletter, January 2021 issue (attached) and the announcement of
PPCR’s appointment was sent within an e-newsletter to 3500 subscribers in
February 2021.

The Request for Quotation is attached to detail the process for the
procurement of an Independent Tenant and Leaseholder Advisor
 
The contract for PPCR is advertised on ProContract which is the Council's
Tendering and Contracts System.  The details can be accessed via the below

Dear Brent Borough Council,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of Brent Borough Council's handling of my FOI request 'Independant Advisors Re-Appointment on St Raphael Estate'.

I have not being given the right link to access the rest of the information. The information request is quite straight forward and to send a link which does not work is unprofessional The contract start date , end date and the amount of money/fee that these consultsants PPCR are receiving is all that is needed. As a council this information should be available. This data can be supplied though an email or on a pdf.

Regards

Kelly Shaw

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/i...
