II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Isle of Wight Council (‘the Authority’) invites applications from suitably qualified suppliers join an approved supplier list for the provision of nursing home services for older people on the Isle of Wight.

In 2017 the authority published care close to home: a new strategy for adult social care (https://www.iow.gov.uk/documentlibrary/view/care-close-to-home-strategy-adult-social-care-). This strategy sets out a vision to help people to maintain or improve their wellbeing and to live as independently as possible.

Prior to December 2019 the authority’s contracts with providers for nursing care home services contained considerable detail about the tasks to be delivered as part of the service. The authority has engaged with the care home market and from December 2019 wishes to contract on the basis of outcomes. This is intended to enable providers more latitude to modernise care home services to meet emerging needs and expectations, and to exercise more flexibility in the use of resources to achieve outcomes in the context of continuing restraints on local authority budgets.

The authority has set rates that it will pay for accommodation. These rates are set by the authority and the NHS for the FNC (Funded Nursing Care) rate. Both are reviewed annually, however, Suppliers should note that the FNC rate is set by the NHS and the authority will have no control over how this rate may change year to year. The authority will pay Suppliers for FNC and reclaim the amount from the NHS.

The authority is seeking an hourly rate from suppliers for any additional support services that may be required.
