Providers are invited to participate in the Eastern Region Foster Care Rolling Select List. Collectively the annual spend across the participating six authorities for the provision of foster care with external providers is £37m per annum. We are inviting providers to express an interest for inclusion on the Rolling Select Lists for the provision of foster care for children and young people (including parent and child placements) in the following six Eastern Region Authorities:- • Cambridgeshire County Council • Essex County Council • Hertfordshire County Council • Peterborough City Council • Suffolk County Council • Thurrock Council The Rolling Select Lists will be established on an individual authority basis for a period of 4 years (from 1st January 2013 – 31st December 2016) with the option to extend the agreement for a further period of up to 24 months. The select lists will be organised into three tiers of providers following an evaluation of quality and price. Placement matching to meet referrals will be undertaken with providers in the uppermost tier initially and if there is not an appropriate placement, then requested from the second and then third tier respectively. The Rolling Select Lists with be reviewed initially after a period of 6 months and it is our intention to review annually thereafter. New entrants will have the opportunity to join the Rolling Select List at these review points when the provider tiers will also be re-evaluated. This online process is being conducted to establish the Eastern Region Foster Care Rolling Select List.
