MidCentral District Health Board (MDHB) and Whanganui District Health Board (WDHB) (together the DHBs) are seeking to appoint a professional service provider to develop a business case to identify the most sustainable and cost effective future funding model for DHB-funded laboratory services.
The services will build on the work already undertaken for the DHBs by Sapere Research Group (Sapere) that has informed the shortlisting of two possible models, and include planning and undertaking a competitive dialogue, RFP (or similar) process with potential suppliers to fully explore available solutions. A strategic assessment and development of a detailed five-case analysis of the potential collaborative models identified for joint DHB funding of laboratory services across the DHBs’ regions is required.
The expected outcome is a detailed business case that makes the case for and identifies the preferred option for the DHBs’ approach to funding laboratory services, and informs a procurement or operational plan (as the case may be) for implementing the preferred option. The services may also include the provision of specialist advice and support around sourcing and implementing the preferred option.
Both DHBs expect to be closely involved in the successful service provider’s development of the business case. Accordingly, a close and effective working relationship will be required.
