1) Older people personal care and support;

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

Care and Support for Older People aged 65 and over who can no longer live at home due to increased care needs which may include physical or mental illness, disability or physical frailty, bereavement, an emergency or the needs of informal carers.

The CSSH Framework will incorporate a simple and cost effective process of calling off services from providers, either by mini-competition or direct award. The Council are carrying out call offs for care and support services in a number of extra care housing schemes in conjunction with the Framework application process. Providers are asked to submit innovate proposals through the mini-competition process for 5 Extra care housing lots that support people aged 55 and over within existing accommodation. The 5 Lots fall into Service Category 1 and include:

— Lot 1a: Rosewood Court, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN8 1LQ,

— Lot 1b: Sunley Court, Kettering, Northamptonshire, NN15 7RJ,

— Lot 2a: Imperial Court, Rushden, Northamptonshire, NN10 9AF,

— Lot 2b: St Crispin’s Court, St Crispin Dr, Northampton NN5 4RB,

— Lot 3: Langdale Court, Wellingborough, Northamptonshire, NN8 3XA.

Providers that are interested in providing services to the extra care housing schemes must submit the appropriate LOT Questionnaire at the same time as they apply to the CSSH Framework. Those providers that only want to apply to the CSSH Framework must just submit the framework questionnaire to become a Framework provider.

It is anticipated that the CSSH Framework will support people to move from a residential care setting, or their own homes, into suitable accommodation where care and support can be effectively accessed. The CSSH Framework will also help to achieve the quality, continuity, affordability, availability and comprehensiveness for the services required. Suitable providers are therefore encouraged to apply for future opportunities and propose new models for implementation within the county so that independent living for vulnerable people can be promoted.

The CSSH Framework will be ‘open’, which means that once the initial providers have been awarded a CSSH Framework contract the Council can open up the framework to other providers in the future, should more providers be required. This will be at the Council’s discretion.

The deadline for completed framework applications, and tender submissions (for the 5 lots above) to be received on the LGSS eTendering Portal is 12:00 noon on Wednesday 7.11.2018.

The ten highest scoring Potential Providers who meet the evaluation criteria will be accepted onto each Service Category of the Framework Agreement and will have the opportunity to be selected for call-offs and further competitions.

Providers will be ranked according to the award criteria score under each Service Category.
