Description of service provision:

The Services applicable under this Agreement shall be provided to adults, subject to the Service Provider’s appointment under this Agreement for the Lot(s) as set out above and is the re-opening of Phase 1 of a planned four phase programme of commissioning.

This re-opening of Phase 1 enables:

(i) Existing appointed providers to bid for additional Lots;

(ii) New providers to seek approval to participate in the Agreement.

For the purposes of this project, ‘standard domiciliary care’ means person centred, outcome based care and support with or without housing related support provided to Person(s) living in their own home in the community (including personal care) traditionally known as ‘homecare’ or ‘home support’, to achieve their wellbeing outcomes. This may also include the provision of domiciliary care in an extra care setting.

The planned future phases are as follows:

Phase 2: Supported living (Providers that only deliver Supported Living and not standard domiciliary care are requested to apply to the Supported Living phase).

Phase 3: Standard domiciliary care for children and families

Phase 4: Enhanced domiciliary care

Domiciliary support should aim to enable people with high support needs to maximise and maintain their wellbeing and have an improved quality of life. Commissioning for outcomes means a focus on long-term changes, rather than short term inputs / outputs.

Services should operate on the basis of achieving three overarching service outcomes:

1) People have a positive experience of care and support:

2) The quality of life for people with high support needs is enhanced;

3) Following a health or wellbeing crisis, services work together to ensure that people are supported as effectively as possible.

In achieving these outcomes, services should have regard to: “Measuring Wellbeing Outcomes in Social Services: National Outcomes Framework for people who need care and support and Carers who need support” – http://gov.wales/docs/dhss/publications/160610frameworken.pdf

Under the terms of this contract the successful supplier(s) will be required to deliver Community Benefits in support of the authority’s economic and social objectives. Accordingly, contract performance conditions may relate in particular to social and environmental considerations. The Community Benefits included in this contract are:

The Service Providers shall meet the obligations of the Government of Wales Act 2010 with regards to sustainable development.

The Service Providers will be expected to work with the Commissioner(s) to maximise the community benefits delivered through the Agreement.

The Service Providers shall maximise community benefits through the lifetime of the Agreement in relation to generating employment opportunities in the local area and introducing innovative approaches such as offering apprenticeship placements as an example.

(WA Ref:87744)

The buyer considers that this contract is suitable for consortia.
