“Last year we undertook a lot of engagement with adults with learning disabilities, with a view to redesigning our services so they can continue to meet the needs of local people.

 

“This latest decision affects how we advertise the supported living and Community Based Day Opportunities we need to potential providers. By opening up our purchasing and allowing new providers to join the dynamic purchasing system, we can evaluate their responses based on quality and cost, and award contracts accordingly. This ultimately means more choice for those residents with assessed eligible care and support needs”.

 

Alan White, Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Health, Care and Wellbeing

 

Reasons for the Decision – To consider the arrangements for the award of individual contracts under the Dynamic Purchasing System for Community Based Day Opportunities to ensure that these can be completed by relevant officers in a timely way and in accordance with Public Contract Regulations 2015 and the Council’s internal procurement regulations.

 

Decision (a) That authority to the award (including entering into) of individual contracts for the provision of Community Based Day Opportunities, via the Light Touch Regime Dynamic Purchasing System, be delegated to the Director for Health and Care.

 

(b) That it be noted that the Director for Health and Care will delegate the award of individual contracts for the provision of Supported Living and Community Based Day Opportunities services, via the respective Light Touch Regime Dynamic Purchasing Systems, to the Assistant Director for Care Commissioning or Lead Commissioner(s), in line with the Council’s scheme of delegation.
