Description of the contract
1.1 To bring new solutions to community challenges and transform lives.
2.1 RISE’s (the “Potential PSM”) mission is to become a leading business in reducing re-offending by providing innovative rehabilitative interventions across the key areas of an offender’s life that are known to divert them from re-offending and help them achieve stability. RISE will be an organisation in which all employees contribute their ideas and energy and will be engaged in decision making and planning.
2.2 RISE will use innovation to grow its services and extend to new customers, providing best value quality services to communities.
3. OPERATING MODEL & PRINCIPLES:
3.1 RISE will be formed by employees from London Probation Trust’s (LPT) Rehabilitation Services Department (the “Parent Body”), who are committed to the mission and will be at the heart of RISE. RISE will develop outcome and customer based service models in which service users are consulted about the design of the service provision and employees are rewarded for performance against outcomes. This new organisation will develop a measurement framework to enable it to capture and provide an analysis of the social return on investment.
3.2 RISE will be a lead provider across London and will be part of a consortium of services (including other mutuals and organisations from the public, commercial and third sector) with a shared vision that provide a seamless service user journey from sentence through to effective change.
The Customer is seeking support to help the project to become competition ready. This will be unique to each project but is likely to include some or all of:
• Business and financial planning
• Business development and market analysis;
• Tender-writing support;
• Developing the legal structure and accompanying governance model;
• Development and/or review of legal agreements (such as partnerships, financing);
• Workforce engagement; and
• Organisational design
The Ministry of Justice is still developing its response to the consultation and the final policy position has yet to be determined; importantly, the procurement of this support should not be taken as an indication of the likely final policy position. However, recognising that mutuals require time to develop, the Customer has selected the most promising potential projects to support. This selection process has included reference to the potential project’s alignment with the relevant aspects of the outline proposals contained in the Transforming Rehabilitation consultation paper.
Further projects (in addition to those currently in the public domain) have been identified, and support contracts will be procured in due course.
The Customer recognises that the final policy proposals may look very different, and the Customer’s decision to support a project should not therefore be seen as an indication that this project will fit with future proposals. The outline project description presented in this documentation may therefore necessarily change, and if necessary, the Supplier must be willing to work flexibly, including allowing the scope of the project to be re-shaped to respond to the final policy proposals. Exceptionally, where it is not possible to re-shape the project, the Contract is likely to be terminated.
