Contract Extension for Supported Living Provision pdf icon PDF 134 KB

Minutes:

The Board gave consideration to a report of the Managing Director of Community Health and Social Care Services and the Strategic Director of Commissioning and Chief Operating Officer which sought approval for an exemption from the Council’s Contract Procedure Rules to extend current commissioning arrangements for the provision of Supported Living for adults with learning disabilities and or complex needs.

The Board were advised that the current arrangements with each provider expired on 31st March 2019 and there was no specific option to extend the individual contracts within the existing terms and conditions.
