Inspiring Communities Together

Making new connections for the Hertfordshire 2020 Year of Culture

Hertfordshire County Council’s Community Wellbeing team is delighted to invite you to our annual Voluntary and Community sector conference which will give us a perfect opportunity to showcase some of the great work that is happening across Hertfordshire, with opportunities to network and catch up with friends and colleagues over a buffet lunch.

The event will offer a marketplace, a series of inspiring workshops and presentations from leading figures in the voluntary and community sector. There will be opportunities to discuss challenges and share experiences. Through dialogue and openness, we hope that the exchange of information, ideas, observations and knowledge will help to create a platform for mutual support, which will help our organisations to develop, connect and obtain the guidance they need to inspire their own communities.

HCC July 2019 Pre-Procurement Market Engagement

HCC Jul 19 Pre-Procurement Market Engagement (PPME) for IAPT Compliant Counselling Services

An advertisement has recently been issued by the Integrated Health and Care Commissioning Team (IHCCT) alerting providers to pre-procurement market engagement for the requirement detailed above.

To view the advertisement it is located at:- Supply Hertfordshire website -

As a Prior Information Notice in the supplement to the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) reference 2019-136-335177

We are making many providers aware of this advertisement so we receive as many responses as possible from the market.

We would therefore encourage providers to complete and submit the Provider Questionnaire, as responses will be used to help shape the Council’s requirements and outcomes and also the scope and strategy for any potential procurement. The Council is potentially looking to re-design the service and provider input will be invaluable to ensure that the Council’s proposals are viable and offer a good opportunity to the market.

Although your attention has been drawn to this advertisement, it does not in any way mean that you have been pre-selected, that your suitability for the forthcoming opportunity has been assessed, or that you will otherwise be treated differently to any other provider who responds to the advertisement.

To express your interest in this advertisement, you must ensure your organisation is registered with Supply Hertfordshire and follow the full instructions provided within the advertisement.

The return deadline is 12.00 Noon Monday 12 August 2019. Provider Questionnaires cannot be uploaded after the closing date/time. All enquiries should go via Supply Hertfordshire.
