The Contracting Authority does not intend to include a sub-contract clause as part of community benefits (as per Section 25 of the Procurement Reform (Scotland) Act 2014) in this contract for the following reason:

Sub-contracting is not deemed appropriate for the delivery of care at home services purchased using this framework.

The Contracting Authority does not intend to include any community benefit requirements in this contract for the following reason:

The social care market in Aberdeen is heterogeneous (in terms of supplier size of and scale) and it would be difficult to prescribe community benefits in a fair & equitable manner across the sector. It is deemed more beneficial for the Aberdeen City area for bidders to address the wider issue of fair work practices. A question on fair work practices is incorporated into the technical envelope.
