Our requirements: — an intervention to develop negotiation and influence skills of staff, — interactive and engaging intervention, — appropriate challenge and support for all attendees, — pre-course engagement (e.g. pre-course thinking), — post training activity to embed the learning (e.g. reflection piece), — provider to provide all relevant training materials.

Other Information

Only those economic operators who have indicated their interest in specific categories, and who have been accepted onto the DPS for those categories, will be invited to take part in the competitions for these specific contracts. Any additional specification information for individual specific contracts will be provided in the ‘Further Competition Document'. This DPS is anticipated to commence on 1.11.2018 for a period of two (2) years up to 31.10.2020, with a provision to extend the DPS for up to three (3) further one (1) year periods (the ‘DPS Period’), and therefore the time limit for receipt of requests to participate is 31.10.2023 (subject to all extensions being taken). However, in order to be considered for the first call-off contracts placed under the DPS, the initial deadline for the receipt of requests to participate is Monday 21.1.2019 at 13:00 GMT and must include all supporting documents as required by the request to participate documents. Economic operators will be assessed on the minimum selection and criteria information provided in response to their request to participate for a place on the DPS. The DPS will be hosted on the Contracting Authority’ s electronic tendering system (www.yortender.co.uk (‘YORtender’). The Contracting Authority will post all of the necessary documentation on YORtender which shall from the date of publication of this notice until the expiry of the DPS Period (subject to any extensions), including full instructions on how to apply for admission on to the DPS, the SQ, and the overarching operating rules of the DPS, together with any other documents. Applications for admission onto the DPS can be submitted electronically via the internet using YORtender at any time during the DPS Period. To participate in this procurement, participants must first be registered to use YORtender. For all queries regarding the technical aspects of the YORtender (for example, problems uploading/viewing documents, etc.) please contact the Proactis Support Team: (i) to log a support request: http://proactis.kayako.com/procontractv3/Core/Default/Index (ii) by Email: ProContractsuppliers@proactis.com. All queries regarding the DPS should be directed through the messaging function within YORtender. Any queries concerning the use of YORtender should be directed to Kirklees Procurement Service: (i) by telephone: 01484 221000; (ii) by email: procurement@kirklees.gov.uk Requests to participate will be evaluated within ten (10) days of receipt, and economic operators informed whether they have been successfully admitted to the DPS and the corresponding categories. The Contracting Authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement. The economic operator can submit a request to participate as a single legal entity. Alternatively, you can work together with other legal entities to form a group of economic operators. If you do, we ask the group of economic operators to choose a lead member who will submit the bid on behalf of the group of economic operators and you will have to identify what each of the parties is contributing to the bid. Any values provided in this Notice or any of the other procurement documents are estimates only. The Contracting Authority cannot guarantee to economic operators any business through the DPS. The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right: (i) not to award any places on the DPS as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority be liable for any costs incurred by the economic operators.
