Extension of all domiciliary care contracts to facilitate procurement within a new strategic framework.
The council currently operates two generic
domiciliary care contracts and 13 specialist domiciliary care
This report seeks approval (under waiver) to extend the current domiciliary care contracts until 31st March 2013, with an option to extend for up to a further 6 months.
The extension period is requested as the council is shortly due to commence a major procurement exercise of borough wide domiciliary care services. The procurement exercise will also include the provision of care and support services in extra care housing schemes, the enablement service and the assessment for assistive technology and community equipment. The anticipated end date of the exercise is March 2013 with new contracts to commence on 1 April 2013.
