Description: The MOJ Corporate Strategy 2011 -2015 sets out the strategic direction for the NOMS Agency with a single objective 'To deliver a transformed justice system and a transformed department - more efficient, more effective, less costly and more accountable and responsive to the public'. Underpinning that objective, the MOJ Business Plan describes the major commitments outlined in the structural reform plans including the commitment to reform how we deliver our services. NOMS will be responsible for implementation and is already committed to competing Community Payback with the first contract award anticipated in July 2012. A National Framework was set up to establish a number of pre-qualified providers of Community Payback which entitles them to bid for any CP competition across England and Wales. The National Framework exercise concluded in August 2010 and Serco, Sodexo (Kalyx) and Com:Pact (a partnership between Mitie and A4E) were awarded Framework status. The National Offender Management Service (NOMS) proposes to run mini-competitions for CP using the framework. The Framework providers and all Probation Trusts (subject to a national gateway process) will have the exclusive right to bid for CP services. Our Commissioning Strategy proposes a nationally co-ordinated process to apply the Framework contract to all Community Payback services across England and Wales. This will take in to account local requirements as per the direction set by the Ministry of Justice and NOMS Business Plans. In order to obtain best value, we propose to: ?create six lots, in order to balance economies of scale with the need to maintain local connections, ? give bidders a substantial degree of freedom to innovate - both in terms of driving down costs and also in responding to the various practice initiatives which have been flagged in the Green Paper (‘Breaking the cycle: effective punishment, rehabilitation and sentencing of offenders’).
