Description of the contract

The West Midlands Kick Start Partnership (WMKSP) is seeking to establish a public service mutual which will provide loan management services and green deal advisory accreditation services to a range of customers. The existing team consists of three full time members of staff who are currently employed by Birmingham City Council. The team were formed when a west midlands county-wide council partnership (currently 27 local authorities) was created to make best use of the decent home grant. In establishing the Kick Start Partnership, the West Midlands' Councils chose to combine the decent homes grant and regeneration funding to establish a small loans business. The loans were available to individual private householders to fund the improvements needed to bring their property up to the decent homes standard. The WMKSP was appointed to manage the issuing and repayment of the loans on behalf of the partner councils. The fund itself was managed by an independent fund manager on behalf of the partnership. The WMKSP is in the process of disbanding the partnership, and in doing so, supporting the member councils to consider how the existing loans could be managed by a Public Service Mutual. A Supplier will be appointed to deliver services to the WMKSP in the following areas: • Business planning and financial viability assessment • Governance advice Potential Suppliers who have expressed interest in this opportunity will be sent the Invitation to Tender on Monday, 6 August 2012.
