II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

As of 6.4.2015, the Care Quality Commission (CQC) has had a statutory duty to operate a market oversight scheme to assess the financial sustainability of the most difficult to replace providers of Adult Social Care (ASC). The purpose of the scheme is to protect people using care services and their families and carers from the anxiety and distress that may be caused by the failure of a major care provider and to minimise any disruption to their care. We do this by monitoring the performance and finances of the most significant social care providers in England and will give local authorities an early warning where we think one of these is at risk of failure and the delivery of services is going to be affected. The scheme will identify where failure is likely, allowing the right people (providers, shareholders, lenders and other stakeholders) to take the right action to potentially avoid failure and to support Local Authorities to plan in case failure does happen. Through its operation, the Scheme aims not to pre-empt or precipitate provider failure and market exit, nor will the CQC or government bailout failing providers or act as a lender of last resort.

Based on eligibility criteria agreed in Parliament, there are currently 60 providers in this market place who are in the Market Oversight Scheme (MOS).

The purpose of the future procurement is to establish a framework of 6 contractors who may be requested to provide external expertise, when required, for the following types of service:

1) independent business reviews;

2) consultancy service to supplement the skills of the market oversight team;

3) Potential secondments into the CQC market oversight team; and

4) Training relating to Continuing Professional Development (CPD).

II.2.6)Estimated value

Value excluding VAT: 1 250 000.00 GBP

II.2.7)Duration of the contract or the framework agreement

Start: 01/01/2020
End: 31/12/2022

II.2.13)Information about European Union funds

The procurement is related to a project and/or programme financed by European Union funds: no

II.2.14)Additional information

The framework will be for an initial period of 3 years starting on 1.1.2020 with the option to extend for a further year.
