Report seeking approval to procure a new supplier of reablement services




1.  That the procurement strategy outlined in the report to undertake a competitive tender to establish a re-ablement contract which will be for term of three years from 3 February 2021, with provision to extend the contracts for a further two years (1+1) through annual extensions be approved.


2.  That the projected maximum annual contract value for this service is £1.4m and therefore the contract value for the initial three-year terms is £4.3m and £7m if both the extension options are exercised, be noted.


3.  That it also be noted that an additional cost, over the current service budget of approximately £100,000 per annum, will be identified to create an in-house team as described from paragraph 16 of the report.


4.  That it be noted that approval will be sought, via a Gateway 3 report, for the extension of the current contract for a further five months to allow for the completion of the procurement procedure and implementation of the new arrangements.
