The Ministry of Justice (the Ministry) requires coronial support services (Services) in order to meet its obligations under the Coroners Act 2006 (the Act). The Services are to assist with identifying the cause of deaths that are referred to the Coroner for investigation (Cases).
There are approximately 3070 such Post-mortems per annum. These can be broken down into three in scope Categories:
- Medically Non-complex Cases
- Medically Complex Cases
- Forensic Cases
Also in scope is the provision of Sudden Unexpected Death in Infancy (SUDI) liaison services.
A Respondent may respond to one, any two or all three of the above Categories, and may respond or choose not to respond to SUDI liaison services. There is no requirement to have capability or capacity in all three Categories; however Respondents must be able to meet the Service requirements of each Category for which they do apply.
To facilitate process planning, the Ministry asks potential Respondents to complete a Notice of Intent to Respond (NOITR). This is intended to help the Ministry plan appropriately for the evaluation process. Please note that the completion of the NOITR is not mandatory and failure to complete the NOITR will not preclude you from submitting a Proposal to the relevant RFP. Likewise, completing a NOITR does not commit providers to responding to the RFP. The NOITR is included as an Appendix to this RFP (Appendix 6 – Notice of Intent to Respond).
