Production is based on the definition of what the service provider expects to provide details on the issues contained in the service results (based on legislation or best practices) A service specification does not have a defined format framework, but in general, it will include the following. Essentially, ALS is a negotiated agreement between the client and the contractor, which aims to establish a common understanding of expectations, the nature of relationships, services, roles and responsibilities, performance indicators and prices/costs. It is also a way of defining service specialties. The service that is the subject of a tender (for example. B asbestos inspection and mitigation work, fire risk assessment, Legionnaires` disease control, occupational health care, etc.). With respect to operational risks associated with the provision of services, a risk assessment of the specification requirements is used to identify risks, so that the corresponding health and safety requirements can be defined. Mike Sopp reflects on how service specialties should describe health and safety requirements in detail. During the review of the tender, a kind of evaluation procedure must be carried out to determine the preferred contractor. There may be many critical factors to consider, and these will normally be weighted.
They include value for money (a quantitative factor) and expertise in providing a qualitative service (quality factor) that can be included by the potential contractor in the filings. The legal responsibility for providing services to people with mental disabilities rests with the Health Services Executive (HSE). The HSE either provides services directly or works with voluntary organizations that can provide the services on their behalf. Section 86 (6) of the Medical Practitioners Act of 2007 requires the HSE to manage medical training services as „personal health and social services“ within the meaning of Sections 38 and 39 of the Health Act 2004. This legislation has resulted in the creation of formal and highly structured contractual agreements between the HSE and all medical training officers. These requirements were first implemented in annual service level agreements signed in 2010 between HSE and a number of suppliers. A service specialty provides potential suppliers with a clear, accurate and comprehensive description of the customer`s needs that allows them to propose a solution to meet the requirement. In other words, the specialization of services emphasizes the service standards required and not the processes involved.
Together, ALS and specifications should: customer expectations of the quality, performance and value of the services to be provided, in a clear and unambiguous manner Normally, the specifications are developed before the order notice. However, in the case of more complex requirements, the evolution of specifications can move from a high-level requirement to more detailed requirements in a competition dialogue phase.
