Health Grade Enterprise Network (HGEN) Infrastructure as a Service Pilot RFT

As the reliance on ICT in healthcare continues to grow, NSW Health must ensure that the foundational ICT infrastructure across NSW hospitals and health services is robust and reliant to meet future needs. As part of this work, eHealth NSW has commenced a project, known as the Health Grade Enterprise Network (HGEN), to explore different options for the procurement and management of critical ICT infrastructure. The current intent is to trial HGEN as part of the redevelopment of the Westmead Precinct, which includes the existing Westmead Hospital facilities, the new Central Acute Services Building and The Children’s Hospital at Westmead. Within broader HGEN scope is cabling plant, wired and wireless networking distributed antenna system (DAS) infrastructure to support in-building mobile coverage and passive infrastructure, although the scope of the Pilot RFT will not include installation of either cabling or the DAS. The HGEN output will be the delivery of related services against a consistent operational metric.   An RFT is intended to be released in the coming weeks to cover the services required to implement the Westmead pilot. Please note that any further market engagement as part of or subsequent to the pilot is at the sole discretion of NSW Health.

Notification of upcoming Industry Sounding and Tender for Universal screening and supports pilot

  Introduction This notification is being issued to announce the commencement of the commissioning of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) Universal Screening and supports pilot. FACS aims to enable vulnerable people to participate fully in NSW’s social and economic life. People experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness are priority client groups for FACS. Under the NSW Homelessness Strategy 2018-2023, FACS is seeking to further understand the risk factors that make people the most vulnerable to homelessness, and make it easier for mainstream service systems to identify and link people with services. The Universal screening and supports program aims to prevent young people from leaving school early by responding early to young people and families at risk and preventing them entering into homelessness, by providing students and young people with a range of supports over the next four years.      FACS is now seeking to procure service providers to pilot the program. Universal screening and supports will be piloted in two sites, these are: Mt Druitt (WSNBM District) Albury (Murrumbidgee District) Background Universal screening and supports is an initiative under the NSW Homelessness Strategy 2018-2023.   Universal screening and supports, based on the Geelong Project model is a place based model that engages youth support providers, local government and government agencies to support vulnerable young people and families. The approach involves a universal screening survey (the Australian Index for Adolescent Development (AIAD)) which is administered once a year (for 4 years) to all students in years 7-12. Combined with local school knowledge about students at risk and a follow-up brief screening interview, this information enables a proactive identification of risk and appropriate support. The support will be provided by a range of specialist support services, working closely with the participating high schools, and typically includes case management, counselling, family support, education and employment program, mentoring programs, resilience building programs, and specialised services for mental health and drug and alcohol services. The key outcomes being sought are that young people remain stably housed and engaged in education, which will help prevent the likelihood of young people entering into homelessness.   Procurement Approach To ensure the best outcomes are achieved for clients, FACS will undertake an industry sounding in each of the identified locations with interested providers with a view to refining the draft specification for the program. Following the industry sounding, prospective applicants will have ten (10) days to complete a Registration of Interest (ROI) form for the Select Tender stage. This will occur though the NSW Governments e-Tender website . The select tender will only be open to those providers who have attended an industry sounding. Timeframes An industry sounding will be held in each of the two locations identified for the program. Details of the exact location and times of the meetings will be uploaded onto eTender in the coming days Albury  - 3 October 2018 10am -12pm Commercial Club Albury Western Sydney - 4 October 2018 9:30am-11:30am Rooty Hill RSL Following the industry sounding, it is envisaged that the Select Tender stage will commence in mid October 2018 with new universal screening and supports contracts commencing in December 2018. Next steps Prospective applicants are invited to RSVP their interest in the industry sounding stage of the tender by sending their details to the Project Team at universalscreening@facs.nsw.gov.au by COB 28 September. Providers are advised that a maximum of two representatives will be allowed from each agency. It is recommended that providers consider representation by operational and practitioner staff as the industry sounding will be interactive and will further inform the program’s final specification for the Select Tender stage. Following their RSVP, each provider will be sent a copy of the industry sounding discussion paper for consideration before the meeting. Attendance at the industry sounding will be mandatory for inclusion in the Select tender stage . FACS will not be inviting providers who have not been represented at an industry sounding.

Notification of upcoming Market Sounding for Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing

  Introduction This notification is being issued to announce the commencement of the commissioning of the NSW Department of Family and Community Services (FACS) Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing (STSH) program . FACS aims to enable vulnerable people to participate fully in NSW’s social and economic life. People experiencing homelessness and those at risk of homelessness are priority client groups for FACS. A high proportion of social housing tenants have an increased risk of falling into homelessness if they lose their tenancies . The evidence highlights that intervention strategies can work effectively if wrap-around support and brokerage is available early enough for at risk tenancies - both for new tenancies where tenants face significant barriers to independently managing their tenancy agreement and existing tenancies where risk factors have escalated. The Sustaining Tenancies in Social Housing (STSH) program is an initiative under the NSW Homelessness Strategy 2018-2023. STSH aims to - sustain existing tenancies, and reduce breaches and evictions in social housing, and prevent homelessness for those at imminent risk of losing their tenancy. The program will deliver tenancy support through local strategies that deliver intensive person-centred support and case management, and address a range of complex needs such as mental health and alcohol and other drug issues. STSH will commence in two districts, working in conjunction with the FACS Housing Tenancy Management Pilot, which aims to better identify at risk tenancies and coordinate referrals to local support networks. The two sites are   South West Sydney District focused on Macquarie Fields   Murrumbidgee District focused on the Murray region. Market Sounding Process To ensure the best outcomes are achieved for clients, FACS will undertake a market sounding in each of the identified locations with interested providers, with a view to refining the draft specification for the program. Following the market sounding, prospective applicants will have ten (10) days to complete a Registration of Interest (ROI) form for the Select Tender stage. This will occur through the NSW Governments e-Tender website . The select tender will only be open to those providers who have attended a market sounding. Provider capabilities FACS is seeking providers with demonstrated expertise to deliver client-centred, trauma-informed case management services and outreach support to social housing tenants whose tenancies are at risk due to a range of issues that may include anti-social behaviour, arrears and property care issues and may have a range of complex needs that may include mental health issues, substance use, disability, financial and debt issues. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander service provision To assure effective service delivery in Aboriginal communities, FACS is interested in provider capability to support and deliver culturally informed and appropriate client services. Service providers will have relevant employment and training policies in place as well as identifiable partnerships that support their cultural competence. Furthermore, the involvement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Organisations either as lead or partner, is highly desirable for any tender bid for this program. This applies in both Districts.  Timeframes A market sounding will be held in each of the two locations identified for the program. Murrumbidgee -  3 rd October, 2018 at 1pm to 3 pm Venue: Commercial Club, 618 Dean St, Albury South West Sydney -  4 th October, 2018 at 1pm to 3 pm Venue: Liverpool Catholic Club, 424-458 Hoxton Park Road, Prestons Following the market sounding, it is envisaged that the select tender stage will commence in late October 2018 with new STSH contracts commencing in early 2019. Next steps Prospective applicants are invited to RSVP their attendance at the market sounding by sending their details to the Project Team at SustainingTenanciesinSocialHousing@facs.nsw.gov.au by COB Friday 28 September Providers are advised that a maximum of two representatives will be allowed from each agency. It is recommended that providers consider representation by operational and practitioner staff as the market sounding will be interactive and will further inform the program’s final specification for the select tender stage. Following their RSVP, each provider will be sent a copy of the market sounding discussion paper for consideration before the meeting. Attendance at the market sounding will be mandatory for inclusion in the select tender stage . Providers interested in both Districts are encouraged to attend both market soundings, but are only required to attend one.

Children and Young People with Complex Disability

Notification of upcoming tender process for the Care of Children and Young People with Complex Disabilities Introduction FACS will commence an open tender process to provide support to children and young people with complex disabilities. It is envisaged that this process will commence in early 2018 with new contracts commencing in late 2018. This tender will be open to all service providers, including those who were not successful in the Intensive Therapeutic Care (ITC) Expression of Interest (EOI) stage, or those currently involved in the ITC Request for Tender (RFT). Background FACS commenced a two stage procurement process for ITC in November 2016. This procurement is to reform the existing Residential Care service system. In May 2017, FACS paused the RFT stage of the ITC procurement to enable additional interactive dialogue with RFT Respondents to provide greater visibility of key reform parameters which will underpin RFT responses. During the interactive meetings, a recurring theme was the inability of the new ITC model to cater for the needs of children and young people in statutory out of home care with complex disabilities. Their needs are ongoing and significantly different to other children and young people in residential care. Trauma informed services such as ITC are designed specifically to address trauma and its impact in order to facilitate recovery. However in all aspects of service delivery, ITC may not be the model to cater for children with complex disabilities. FACS will now commence a separate procurement process for these children and young people. Cohort identification The children and young people in this alternative service model are unlikely to step-down to less intensive care pathways, as framed by the ITC system. FACS expects there are a small group of under 50 children and young people in the current statutory out of home care service system in NSW that may become eligible for this service model. They are identified as having extreme functional impairment and/or very high support needs that have substantial and long-term adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities and require specialised and intensive supports to maintain stability in their care arrangements. They may not be able to respond to the practices of ITC and may have complexities that pose significant risks to themselves and others and, as a result, will require ongoing care and disability support even after they turn 18 years of age. Next steps A tendering process for the model of care will be undertaken in 2018 after a period of consultation with the sector to facilitate the development of a service model. The model will be designed so that the services a child or young person with a complex disability receives are always determined by their assessed needs and focused on safety, permanency and well-being outcomes.  If your agency did not participate in the ITC EOI or RFT, and currently provides placements for FACS funded special care or other out-of-contract placements, you are encouraged to participate in this tendering process. Further information will be provided in early 2018, so that all service providers have time to consider their positions.
