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

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, NHS Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear NHS Redbridge Clinical Commissioning Group,

I note from Contracts Finder that NELCSU made a direct award under Lot 1 of the Management Consultancy Framework 2 framework (RM6008) to PeopleToo Limited for £94,000. I sought further information from them about this and they advised I contact you as the procurement was undertaken on behalf of you together with Barking and Dagenham and Havering CCGs.

As you will be aware, in order to use the (exceptional) Direct Award route under the RM6008 framework, it is necessary for you to develop a clear statement of requirements, develop direct award criteria for the particular assignment, apply the direct award criteria to the framework catalogue for the 282 suppliers on the appropriate lot and establish which of these provides the most economically advantageous solution.

Please can you provide under the Freedom of Information Act:

1. The Statement of Requirements developed for this work.

2. The Direct Award Criteria selected for this work.

3. Details of how you or NELCSU assessed the 282 potential suppliers against the Statement of Requirements and the Direct Award Criteria to identify that PeopleToo Limited was the most economically advantageous supplier.

In addition, please can you confirm that the price you are paying to PeopleToo Limited is based on the full day rates quoted in their framework submission and that there has been no reduction to the price for this specific piece of work.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully,

Sebastian Reed
