Feedback Home Based Care – Feedback to Providers Following the recent Procurement exercise to establish a new framework agreement from 2012 to 2014, Surrey County Council (SCC) have produced feedback which we hope all Providers will find of assistance when submitting bids for future tender opportunities with SCC or NHS Surrey. This feedback focuses on comments from the evaluation panel and gives both specific and generic advice for providers to follow when writing future bid submissions.

For example, dignity in care should be referenced in every answer relating to delivery of care Clarifications Clarifications’ are a two way form of communication during a tender exercise You can be sure you have correctly understood the requirements of the service We can identify any areas of the specification that may not be clear and can make amendments (if appropriate) Home Based Care – Feedback to Providers
