Have your say on Tennis in Telford - 1 to 16 October 2015

Telford & Wrekin Council is doing some market testing on the future operation and coaching provision of the Telford Tennis Centre.

We are looking to go out to tender for the operation of the tennis centre later this year.  As such, we are seeking existing indoor tennis centre market leaders, local clubs and customers to help us shape a viable model for delivery.

Based on your knowledge, what delivery option drives participation, sustainability and fits best for Telford?  What, in your opinion, should we stop doing and what should we start doing?  This engagement with current providers and the local community will be used to create a fully informed specification for the new Telford Tennis Centre operational contract.

This window of engagement is only open from 1st to 16th October 2015.  If you are interested in being part of the process, please call Sophie Griffiths on 01952 383908 or email to make an appointment.

Please note this engagement is fully permitted under Section 40 (1) of the Public Contract Regulations and is actively encouraged under the Social Value Act and Lord Young Reforms.

Tender Opportunity...

Provision of security patrols and keyholder and alarm response service to Telford & Wrekin schools and other Council premises.

We intend to issue the OJEU Notice and Invitation to Tender at the beginning of December 2015.

Potential suppliers are invited to a Meet the Buyer event on Friday 9 October 2015 to learn more about this opportunity and the procurement process.

Please note no more invitations are being issued for this event as we have been overwhelmed with attendees and it is now full to capacity (even though we have put on another date due to demand) but this will not preclude you from the bidding process should you wish to bid.

Would you be interested in running a full outdoor music concert on behalf of the Council?

Telford & Wrekin Council has now successfully run music events in Telford Town Park for the last three years.  In June this year we had over 7,000 people attending the Boyzone event in a 10,000 capacity arena! We are now looking forward to next year and want even more creative ideas and input from event management experts to inform our process and make suggestions on how and what we tender for.

Please contact Sarah Belcher by 25 September 2015 for further details and a copy of our specification: or 01952 384996.

Domiciliary Care change project

Preferred Provider Framework for Domiciliary Care

In 2014 Telford & Wrekin put a Preferred Provider Framework (the Framework) in place to support all purchasing of domiciliary care made from 1 October 2015. All new care purchasing from this date is offered to providers who are on our Framework. Work is also underway to transfer current care purchasing onto the Framework.
