The PCC for Cleveland has previously commissioned an organisation to deliver a Youth Commission via grant agreements.
The role of the Youth Commission was to establish key priority areas for young people and to support them in undertaking consultation activities with other young people.
The Youth Commission were also involved in a range of activities including the scrutiny of Police stop and search and providing advice on ethical dilemmas.
As the grant agreement comes to an end a decision was made to formalise and broaden the range of activities which the OPCC would wish from a youth advisory body and to establish a clear structure for engagement and interactions.
In addition to formalising the activities a decision was also made to formalise the arrangement through a formal contract.
An advert was placed in Contracts Finder and the Bluelight E-tendering system inviting suppliers to bid for the service. An open tender was carried out using EU Supply as the tender portal, advertising the contract in Contract Finder as per the Public Procurement Regulations 2015.
Details of the Procurement Process are included in the appended report.
