 Health PPP Project Review
 Pre-IFT (Invitation to submit Final Tender)
 Introduction

 What is the purpose of this review?

 This review should not be regarded as a tick sheet or pass/fail exercise. It is a tool to
 assist NHS Bodies to stop, and consider, if they are advanced sufficiently in their project
 development, and documentation, to proceed to issue of a project IFT, which will secure
 high quality, sustainable bids, with minimal bidder qualifications.

 In the following five sections there are questions for NHS Bodies to consider as part of a
 self-assessment. NHS Bodies should respond to every question. Questions marked (E)
 will form the focus of the external review.

 Previously, the Pre-OJEU KSR will have been undertaken prior to the OJEU of the
 project. At this stage, the Health Board would have provided information detailing their
 approach to the CD / ITPD stage which would have been part of the Pre-OJEU review.
 Post this the PQQ Stage and Dialogue Stage would have taken place. Ahead of issuing
 the Invitation to Participate in Dialogue (ITPD), NHS Bodies may have opted to
 complete the Pre-ITPD Key Stage Review Document. In those cases, a number of the
 questions in this Pre-IFT review will already have been answered, and can be repeated
 here (subject to any changes). This IFT review initially recaps on how the Dialogue
 stage proceeded and goes on to assess readiness to issue the Invitation to submit Final
 Tender document.

 How will this review be carried out?

 No later than 4 weeks prior to the review being carried out, NHS Bodies are required to
 give a preliminary indication of a date for this review to:

 Deputy Director, Capital Planning and Asset Management
 Scottish Government Health Finance Directorate
 Basement Rear
 St Andrew’s House
 Regent Road
 Edinburgh EH1 3DG


 Two weeks before the review is required the NHS body should confirm the final date, or
 seek an amendment.

 One week before the date of the review, the completed Pre-IFT Review Document
 should be submitted in electronic (CD-ROM) and paper format along with a copy of
 the final draft project IFT documents and a copy of the milestone project
 programme to Claire Phillips, Partnerships UK, 1 St. Colme Street, Edinburgh EH3
 6AA. An electronic version only of the review document should also be sent to the
 Deputy Director, Capital Planning and Asset Management at the above address.

 The Scottish Government Health Directorate (SGHD) has asked Partnerships UK (PUK)
 to carry out the review on their behalf, the review process should last no more than two
 days.

 On completion of the review PUK will compile a draft report and where required discuss
 or clarify it with the project team prior to the submission of a final report to the SGHD.

 The NHS Body’s Chief Executive, or Chair of the project steering group, should make a
 written response to the Deputy Director, Capital Planning and Asset Management
 setting out the NHS Body’s response to any recommendations made in the report

 The SGHD will review the NHS Body’s response and may ask to meet with the project
 manager, project team or project steering group Chair or Chief Executive to discuss any
 arising issues.

                What number of interested parties were taken
                forward to the dialogue stage and how long did

                stage?

                Provide details of the down selection process /
                evaluation undertaken.

                discoveries made by detailed technical surveys,
                has the risk profile altered significantly?)

                What have been the major cost movements since
                the issue of OJEU?

               transfer. Have they been updated for changes in
               the dialogue stage?

               (For instance have all the construction figures
               been reviewed and verified, have the FM costs
               been updated to reflect the detailed services

               cost information from NHS Bodies estimates)
               has previously or will be made available to
               bidders? And at what time?

               Given any changes post OJEU, has the project
               the required NHS Board and SGHD approvals to
               proceed on this basis, including full sign off and

               mechanism been applied (with robust                example

               calibrate undertaken e.g. tolerances)?             confirmation

               Has a payment mechanism calibration model
               been constructed (and tested) bespoke to the
               project? Do BCM designs match to the defined
               functional areas and functional units? Will the
               calibration model, and worked examples of
               outputs, be shared with bidders during the IFT
               period (or previously in the dialogue period).

               Has the payment mechanism been tested (via
               the calibration model) against a range of likely
               project specific performance and “what-if”
               scenarios?


2.2            Is the NHS Body satisfied that the service Covering               I
               specification and the payment mechanism are letter
               synchronised and that the incentives delivered
               by the payment mechanism reflect the priorities
               and desired outputs of the NHS Board?

               The NHS Board should indicate how it has
               arrived at its decision that the payment
               mechanism meets its requirements and is
               optimal VfM.

2.3            How has the payment mechanism been
               developed during the dialogue period through
               discussion with bidders?
               How will the payment mechanism be finalised
               during the IFT period through discussion with
               bidders?


Procurement    Key objective: Have all project specific risks
Risk matrix    transferred and retained been identified,
               quantified and is there a view on balance
               sheet treatment?

               sheet position (based on an Initial Views letter
               assessment if available)?

Shadow Bid     Key objective: Does the shadow bid model
model          deliver sufficient and robust clarity on the
               affordability position?
               Based on NHS Body’s assessments, are
               proposals expected to be VfM?

2.8            What differences on cost and risk assumptions Covering             I
               are there between the PSC/BCM and shadow letter
               bid model?

               within the construction costs and what base letter
               date has been applied to construction costs?
