II.1.4)Short description of the contract or purchase(s)
Although this requirement falls under part B of the regulations (Social Care) it is proposed too voluntarily use this notice to maximise awareness. A service is required to enhance the work of the North Yorkshire Youth Support Service (YSS) in meeting the Local Authority's responsibility to, "secure, as far as is practicable, sufficient services and activities to improve the wellbeing of young people”. (Guidance to Local Authorities on Services and Activities to Improve Young People's Wellbeing. DfE 2012).
The service will complement and add value to the wider YSS provision. Young people should have access to a varied and wide reaching range of educational, personal and social development and leisure activities. The YSS is part of this menu of opportunities and aims to complement and enhance provision as opposed to duplicate or directly control what is on offer in communities.
The key priorities for the contract provider will be:
To develop the capacity of the voluntary and community sector to deliver youth work activity.
To establish a network of volunteers from a range of sources to provide individual support to young people in their local community.
To operate as part of the Youth Support Service ‘offer' by ensuring that there are close working relationships with the local YSS team.
To manage and develop the network of new and existing voluntary/community clubs.
To assume responsibility for clubs as directed by the Youth Support Service as part of the transfer of arrangements from Local Authority involvement to community ownership.
To maintain records and use the YSS management information system to record performance data.
To identify and access funding opportunities that would add value and/or enhance the contract.

Precise information on deadline(s) for lodging appeals: North Yorkshire County Council shall in accordance with the Public Contracts (amendment) Regulations 2009, incorporate a minimum 10 day standstill period commencing at the point that information on the intention to award the contract is sent to tenderers. The Council shall, as soon as possible after the decision has been made, inform the tenderers and candidates of its decision, and shall do so by notice in writing by the most rapid
means of communication practicable. The information will include; a) the criteria for the award of the contract b) the reasons for the decision c) the name of the economic operator to be awarded d) a precise statement when the standstill period is expected to end.
Should additional information be required, please contact the person cited in paragraph 1.1 of this form.
If an appeal regarding the award of a contract has not been successfully resolved, Public Contracts Regulations 2006 (SI2006 No 5) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be brought promptly (generally within 3 months).
Where a contract has not been entered into the court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the authority to amend any document and may award damages. Following the 10 day standstill period, if no further debriefing has been requested, the court may only award damages once the contract has been entered into.
