Care and Support at Home Award of Contracts

The tender for Care and Support at Home which initially commenced in February 2020 and was subsequently paused as a result of the first wave of the pandemic has reached the point at which a decision is required regarding the award of the new arrangements.  Following a number of risks and concerns having been raised and reviewed the proposal for decision is not to award the procurement. It is proposed that current contractual arrangements through established framework agreements be extended whilst fresh plans for the service and its procurement are made as soon as is practicable. Potential suppliers will be engaged both in relation to the reasons for the decision and the options for participating in the current framework.
