The Hertfordshire Partnership University NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT) and Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust (HCT) (the ‘Authorities’) joined together in a collaborative procurement, to procure their catering services, to a mixed multi-site, multi stakeholder portfolio. The authorities have a mix of inpatient, outpatient and administration areas making up their core service. The preferred bidder has (subject to certain Trust specific variances) been awarded two identical catering service contracts, one with HPFT and the other with HCT. Both contracts have a contract commencement date of 1 April 2021.

The authorities sought a service provider that is able to deliver the above objectives within a healthcare environment, embracing and working in partnership with both Trusts and their clients, so future aspirations can be exceeded.

The authorities procured additional facilities management services (hard facilities management and soft facilities management) under separate tender processes.
