II.1.3)Type of contract
Hertfordshire County Council (the ‘Council’) is carrying out Pre-Procurement Market Engagement (‘PPME’) in relation to a Staff Rostering Solution.
The Council will consider the feedback received to help inform the Council's options and further decision making. For the avoidance of doubt, this stage of the project is not part of a formal procurement process and the Council is not committing, at this stage, to carrying out such a process.
Participation or non-participation in the PPME shall not prevent any supplier participating in a potential future procurement, nor is it intended that any information supplied as part of the PPME shall place any supplier at an advantage in a potential procurement process.
Participation in the PPME will be at each organisation's own cost. No expense in responding to this PPME will be reimbursed by the Council.

The initial scope of the project would be to deliver a rostering system to the following services, who have particularly pressing needs for an integrated system:
— Health and Social Care (HCS) services, including Day Services, Supported Living, and Short Breaks.

If this initial roll-out is successful we would then consider expanding the solution to a number of different services that operate on working shift patterns.
