3. Resident Engagement Soft Market Test
The Council is currently undertaking Soft Market Testing exercise to determine future delivery options for its Resident Engagement Service. This will include:
Resident Engagement Strategy
Delivering bespoke training
Market Research & Customer Insight
The Council would like to understand from potential providers how these requirements might best be met and is therefore carrying out a soft market testing exercise to engage in early informal dialogue, prior to any formal procurement taking place.
Organisations that are interested in participating in this exercise will be invited to complete and submit a questionnaire via the London Tenders Portal. This process is scheduled to start on 22nd February 2016 and will remain open for a period of 3 weeks.
After this questionnaire, the Council will be looking to invite the voluntary & community sector and other partners to discuss re-commissioning this service and future opportunities.
For more information about this exercise, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
5. Strategic Partner Programme
The Strategic Partner Programme is still in development with Kingston Voluntary Action, and further news will follow when available.
