Department Of Health Standard Form Project Agreement (Version 3)

Enable like-for-like comparisons of projects to support more meaningful cost-value analysis The history of template or standard form contracts in the PFI context is long. Even before the publication by HM Treasury in July 1999 of version 1 of `Standardisation of PFI contracts`, several technical observations were made by the Treasury Task Force for projects, which contained guidelines and contracts which would subsequently include a large number of sectoral or project-specific pilot project agreements and support contracts. Questionnaire added before collection (AQP form). The form is intended for manufacturers, product suppliers or authorised representatives in order to provide an NHS organisation with information about either medical device. Version 1 of the standardization of PFI contracts was widely published in response to the second revision of the IFPs by Sir Malcolm Bates, commissioned on 12 November 1998 and carried out at the same time as Peter Gershon`s review of civilian public procurement in the central government. Bates` second PFI review was the need to consolidate and strengthen central coordination in PFI`s public procurement, as well as the need for greater standardization of contractual conditions. The main reasons (although not specified in these terms) are quite obvious: the NHS standard subcontract for the provision of clinical services 2016/2017 has been added. The contract (full and shorter) has been updated for 2019/20. A summary of the changes we have made to the contracts is available in section 3 of the TECHNICAL GUIDELINES FOR NHS Standard Contracts and in the “Responding to Feedback Consultation” document below. Update for new guidelines on the conditions for the supply of goods and services (contractual version) and case studies on a project of services managed by NHS Blood and Transplant After a commitment exercise carried out in January 2018, NHS England proposes to impose the use of a standard format for activities and finances (known as Aggregate Contract Report Monitoring). and support data streams for all acute and psychiatric services mandated under the full contract. These proposals are set out in detail in the introductory document to the proposals for aggregated contract monitoring reports and supporting data flows, and we welcome the comments on this.

The NHS standard contract is prescribed by NHS England for use by commissioners for all non-primary care healthcare contracts. The NHS Terms of Sale for the purchase of goods and services and related forms have been updated to reflect changes in government policy and data protection legislation. The data protection protocol and a briefing note for the identification of experts have also been added. The eContract system hosts both the contracts in their entirety and in a shorter form and allows the contract to be adapted to the specific services provided, so that only the relevant terms of service and schedules are displayed. We strongly recommend that commissioners and suppliers use the eContract system. We have just published for consultation the draft NHS Standard Contract 2019/20 (both in its entirety and in a shorter form). The following consultation paper outlines the main substantive changes we are proposing in the Treaties and we would welcome stakeholder comments on our proposals. We also welcome the comments on the draft technical guidelines. This practice note deals with the standardisation of contracts with regard to IFPs and PF2s and discusses the practical use of model contracts. Framework agreements for the supply of goods and services have been added as well as updated main guidelines.
