Birmingham City Council (the Council) wishes to invite potential suppliers to submit tenders for provision of a subject matter expert in relation to home to schools transport. The Home to Schools service provides a variety of transport options to over 4,250 children on a daily basis, with an additional 1,500 receiving bus passes. The majority of the children using the service have requirements related to SEND but the service also supports looked after children; children in temporary accommodation and other vulnerable groups. The service operates more than 590 routes and has a range of support options including: 1-to-1's; mini bus/coach transport; Travel Guides; personal transport budgets; bus passes and independent travel training. Our challenge is to achieve appropriate home to school transport provision at a time of reduced funding. We are seeking subject matter expertise on the transport requirement together with children's SEND sector knowledge specialising in alternative, sustainable methods of transport. Refer to the tender documentation for a full brief. The proposed duration of the contract is for a maximum of 60 days, commencing 19th March 2019.
