Issue details

Care and Support at Home Award of Contracts

In February 2020 the decision (Report ref: AH11 19/20 ) was made to commence the procurement of commissioned Care and Support at Home Services with a focus on strengths based and outcomes focused services and an emphasis on a localised and community focused approach in line with the Council’s focus on community led support.  The decision included delegation of the authority to award the contract to the Executive Director of Adults and Health.


The procurement was delayed as a result of the pandemic, and a decision (Report Ref: OKD46 20/21) was subsequently taken in November 2020 to extend the current framework to align with the updated anticipated commencement for the new commissioned arrangements on, 4 July 2021.


In accordance with both decisions, the procurement has been undertaken and the Executive Director of Adults and Health will be asked to award the contracts to successful bidders in March 2021 prior to the commencement of the new commissioned Care and Support at Home arrangements in July 2021.
