SOFT MARKET TESTING - ICT system for Transport service

Cheshire West and Chester Council is considering options for the delivery of an ICT transport system. As part of this, we will be conducting soft market testing for a system that can meet our needs, ensuring statutory duties adhered to and best value is achieved. Cheshire West and Chester's Transport Commissioning Service is responsible for the commissioning of all the Council's transport contracts. These include transport contracts for: • Adult social care (including adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health disabilities and older people with a social care need). • Special Educational Needs (SEN) School Transport • 'Looked after children' • Mainstream School Transport • Community Transport • In House Passenger Transport provision. In addition, the Transport Commissioning Service monitors all these contracts for compliance with our terms and conditions. Passengers travelling within our care must be adequately safeguarded and in order to do this, we hold a Driver Vetting database of contractors' staff to ensure they are fit to work on our contracts. This equally applies to our in-house staff. The Service holds vehicle details for all contractors including our in-house provision as well as making the appropriate monthly contract payments to these contractors. The Service regularly reports on the contractual and financial performance of these contracts to the Council's Leadership Team. Please refer to to obtain the full list of requirements and for details on how to express an interest.
