Statement on new tender for Melton headspace

  22 March 2019  NWMPHN   

At the request of the Department of Health, North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network is planning a new tender for headspace services in Melton.

Last year we conducted the commissioning process to select the consortium to implement and operate the new headspace service in Melton. headspace Melton opened in September 2018 and has been providing a valuable service to the young people of Melton and their families since then.

Following an appeal by an unsuccessful tenderer, management consultancy Deloitte was appointed to independently assess the tender process. The review found that the tender process was competitive and non-discriminatory while also highlighting some areas where we could improve. The review did not recommend a retender.

We are working with the Department to ensure that services to young people in the Melton area and their families are not disrupted during this process.

Further details will be released as available.
