Gateway 3 - Variation Decision: Extension of contract: Adult Integrated Drug and Alcohol Treatment System

Decision Maker: Cabinet

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


The report had not been circulated five clear days in advance of the meeting. The chair agreed to accept the report as urgent as the contract was due to expire on 3 January 2020 and there was a need to confirm the council’s intentions to the provider at the earliest opportunity, prior to the current contractual expiry date.  Any delay in the decision would not enable the council to provide reasonable notice to the contractor.




1.  That the extension of the adult integrated drug and alcohol treatment system (AIDATS) contract with change, grow, live services limited (cgls; a wholly owned, non-charitable, trading subsidiary of change grow live; a registered charity delivering health and welfare services) for a maximum period of fifteen (15) months commencing on 4 January 2020 at a maximum contract value of £4,275,914, and including the revisions noted at paragraph 31 of the report, be approved.


2.  That a monitoring report be submitted to cabinet on a quarterly basis.
