Future Procurement Opportunity (FPO) For Selected Providers
Te Whatu Ora, in partnership with Te Aka Whai Ora, is intending to seek suppliers to deliver services which will establish a Rights Based Approach to Healthcare for Intersex Children and Young People, and their Whānau.
This opportunity is to design and implement four service components:
• best practice guidelines - developing best practice guidelines for the provision of health care for children and young people with IVSC
• training services and workforce development - supporting and upskilling health professionals to use and continuously improve the best practice guidelines
• peer and psychosocial support - establishing these support services for children and young people with IVSC and their whānau
• information resources - providing children and young people with IVSC and their whānau with accessible and appropriate information to make informed decisions about their health care.
The intention is to run an open and competitive process using a two-stage process of a Registration of Interest (ROI) followed by a Request for Proposal (RFP), for all four service components.
When the process commences, potential respondents will be able to submit an ROI for a single service component or any combination of the service components. After evaluation of the ROI responses, the successful respondents will be invited to participate in the next step.
Budget 2022 provided funding to develop a rights-based approach to the health care of intersex children and young people.
A number of people with lived experience of IVSC from across Aotearoa have been instrumental in shaping the focus of the four service components which see children and young people with IVSC and their whānau being able to easily find, access and use, culturally and age appropriate health care and psychosocial support, from their diagnosis to their transition to adult services.
This is an opportunity to actively shape a future model of care for people with IVSC in Aotearoa | NZ by designing, implementing and evolving high quality foundational services for children and young people with IVSC and their whānau.
The ROI is expected to be released in August. Timeframes and procurement approach remain subject to change.
This is a Future Procurement Opportunity (FPO).
A FPO is an alert to suppliers of a potential upcoming procurement activity, though does not represent a commitment by Te Whatu Ora
