Housing and debt services in Buckinghamshire

Expressions of interest are invited from 2013 Standard Civil Contract holders for the delivery of housing and debt services in the Buckinghamshire procurement area.

This opportunity is for the delivery of services until new contracts start on 1 September 2018.

It is open to all holders of the 2013 Standard Civil Contract, and is not limited to current housing and debt providers.

We are interested in hearing from organisations able to meet the requirements of the 2013 Standard Civil Contract in full.

However, we will also consider applications from organisations which feel unable to fully meet the ‘permanent presence’ or the ‘supervisor’ requirements.

Housing Possession Court Duty Schemes

Expressions of interest are also invited from 2013 Standard Civil Contract holders currently delivering housing and debt services.

This is for the delivery of the following Housing Possession Court Duty Schemes (HPCDS) until new contracts start on 1 October 2018:

  • Milton Keynes (delivered at Milton Keynes County Court and Family Court) and/or
  • Blackpool & Preston (delivered at Blackpool County Court and Family Court and Preston Combined Court Centre)

These opportunities are open to all 2013 Standard Civil Contract holders currently delivering housing and debt services, and is not limited to current HPCDS providers.

However, we will give preference to those who hold a HPCDS exclusive schedule at the office from which they bid to run the scheme.
