HTC Big Local Procurement October 2021

This is an exciting research and consultation opportunity to work with Hill Top and Caldwell Big Local (HTC), which is one of 150 communities awarded £1 million each to make their area a better place to live over a 10-year period.

Funded by the National Lottery Community Fund and administered by the Local Trust, HTC Big Local Partnership is a resident-led group established to take this work forward with the vision of a thriving active community, where people of all ages are inspired to use their skills to bring the community together to tackle local needs, aspirations and achieve the community’s full potential through a sustainable plan.

HTC is supported by its local trusted organisation, Warwickshire CAVA (WCAVA).

As the programme enters its final phase, HTC Big Local is required to submit a plan for June 2022 – August 2025 to Local Trust. The plan needs to include a costed vision, action plan and legacy statement. The plan should incorporate the views gathered from a wide range of people in the local community; data about the local area; and all the things HTC has learned from its work together so far. More information can be found here.

Tender requirements
HTC Big Local Partnership is looking to commission a provider with a proven track record in community consultation and engagement to conduct a programme of research and consultation for its new plan. We are looking for the commissioned provider to prepare a written report (the plan), with costed vision, that details the key community needs with costed recommendations as to how these can be addressed.

Please note that HTC are already working on their legacy statement, independently of the requirements of this tender.

HTC have allocated communication and some staff/volunteer capacity to support the scheme of work.

HTC welcomes creative ways for the consultation to be undertaken, and findings presented that are acceptable to both the Partnership and submission to Local Trust.

Your submission should indicate your proposed budget for this work, including any expenses and the costs of any community or stakeholder events you might want to hold. Your final figure should include VAT, if applicable. Where you are suggesting additional or summary work outside of the scope of work in this document please ensure this is clearly marked.

The contract agreement will be between the successful candidate(s) and WCAVA, the locally trusted organisation for HTC Big Local.

Application submission and process
The deadline for receipt of all applications is Friday, 29th October 2021 by 5pm. Applications received after this date will not be scored.
