Portsmouth City Council is planning to tender a new contract for the provision of families housing supported services based within the City of Portsmouth. The Contract or Framework agreement will last for three to five years, plus extensions, and is intended to be used for the provision of housing related and parenting support to families, funded by Portsmouth City Council.

As a precursor to the issue of tender documentation, the Council would like to consult organisations on the proposed scope, content of the contract, and specification. Consequently, we have produced this short consultation document and would welcome input into this process from interested parties.

The deadline for receipt of responses is 5pm on Friday 1st October 2021. Responses should be returned using the correspondence function on In-Tend.

Views of perspective tenderers are very important to us, will be taken into consideration, and may have a direct bearing on the final documentation. The purpose of the consultation is to confirm that the facilities exist within the City to be able to deliver the required services.
