Updates from NHS London Procurement Partnership October 2014

Construction Consultancy and Advisory Services frameworks live
In response to members' requests for frameworks to cover the wide range of professional services required by Estates & Facilities teams, we have launched Construction Consultancy - eight lots covering everything from Architectural to Mechanical & Electrical Engineering Services - and Advisory Services - 30 lots including Rent & Rates Review, Fire Consultancy, Asbestos Services and Food Safety Specialist Services. Both frameworks have been established to allow flexibility in contracting methods while providing a more coordinated and structured route to market.

Do you want help with transport suppliers?
The organisation 'Transport for All' has published its findings of a survey of 200 users of London's patient transport. You can view the report online. If you are using the LPP Transport Services framework standard contract with your patient transport provider(s), you are already supporting the Patient Transport Charter featured in the report. If however you feel you need support to manage the contract, please contact Edward James.

Mobile Telephony aggregation: 64% savings
The mobile voice and data services aggregation DAP project is nearing the point at which contracts will be signed by trusts with Telefonica O2. Eight trusts signed up to commit their business into the tender and price-only eAuction. The indicative average savings across the eight trusts are 64 per cent based on a like-for-like comparison of connections, data, voice, text volume profiles, bolt-ons, and assuming alternative arrangements for devices as these were deliberately unbundled from  the new contract.

My.LPP revamp: have you checked it out yet?
We are busy in the background doing some work on the my.lpp portal to give it a new look to match the new website, and to make it easier to navigate. We are also looking to increase its functionality. As a starter for ten, when you next view your Trust page, you’ll see tabs to your workspaces and other areas as before, but you will also be able to see a list of your trust colleagues who are registered on my.lpp. If you spot anyone on that list who shouldn’t be, please let Marcia Cofie-Bruce know and we’ll amend their account. If you spot anyone who isn’t on there and you think they should, please tell them to register here.
