Decision details

Procurement Process for Housing Related Support Contracts - OKD13 (19/20)

Decision Maker: Executive Director People Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The current housing related support contracts commissioned by the County Council end on 30 September 2019, further to the Cabinet Member for Adults and Health’s decision in December 2018 (Report Reference AH11 18/19).  These services need to be recommissioned based on the revised financial envelope for these services. 


To aid this process the council has rated the service using a RAG rating indicated the strategic fit with statutory duties and prevention.   Services rated as green are a high priority for continued funding, albeit with efficiencies.   These are services which support the Council’s statutory duties in relation to adults with complex needs and children.   The proposed approach for these services is a single tender re-procurement. 


Services rated red are unlikely to attract on-going funding as they do not meet statutory needs and work is underway to end this provision. 


Services rated amber are those services which have brought support as priorities across the district and boroughs and could form part of the Councils preventative offer.  The exact services commissioned will be subject to the outcome of a joint piece of work. 


The Executive Director People Services has approved the following contractual arrangements from the 1st October 2019:


(1) The procurements of the eight HRS services set out in paragraphs 2.1 to 2.3 of the report for a contract duration of three years, plus provision for extension of up to two years.


(2) The procurement of the Change Live Grow (CLG) contract which supports ex-offenders for twelve months.


(3) A six month contract extensions for the remaining HRS set out in figure two of the report.


(4) The procurement of the remaining housing related support services set out in figure 2 of the report from April 2019, based on a contract duration of three years, plus provision for extension of up to two years
