Glasgow Alliance to End Homelessness

Update at June 2018

Glasgow City Council published this statement:

Statement to the Market – Re-Design of Homelessness Service

Following a procurement strategy review, the Prior Information Notice (PIN) published by GCC on the 23rd September 2017 in relation to the procurement of a re-designed Homelessness Service for Glasgow via the creation of an Alliance Partnership will be superseded by a new notice to commence the procurement procedure.

The updated notification will be published in due course, but in the meantime GCC wishes to inform the market that it intends to procure the re-designed Homelessness Service under the Light Touch Regime provisions of the Public Contracts (Scotland) Regulations 2015. Further details relating to the form of tender competition, including a brief description of the contract, the conditions for participation, and the main features of the award procedure will be more fully described within the relevant notice.

At the moment, GCC envisages that it will adopt a tender procedure involving successive stages to accommodate some form of negotiation or dialogue with participants rather than following an open or restricted procedure
