II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
Staffordshire County Council would like to invite suppliers who are committed to providing high quality personalised support and care services, that promote independence and lead to an improved quality of life that enables service users to be able to remain in their own home for as long as possible and to achieve and maintain their autonomy, independence, personal identity and assessed outcomes. This framework is a secondary framework to provide additional capacity in areas where the Council has Unmet Need that cannot be addressed by the Personalised Support and Care Framework SCHG00164. The suppliers shall provide the services for the benefits of all adults who reside in the County of Staffordshire (excluding Stoke-on-Trent) and who are also aged eighteen (18) years or over (except for those going through transition from children’s to adults) and who have been assessed by the Council or the Council’s partners as eligible to receive support and care within their own home. Care will be delivered within the services user’s own home or ordinary place of residence within the County of Staffordshire (excluding the City of Stoke-on-Trent). Service users and carers are to remain at the centre of decisions about their care, thus ensuring care is provided in a person centred way. The Council will be appointing multiple suppliers to provide various call off contracts under a Framework Agreement for personalised support and care services across 12 (twelve) geographical Contract Zones within Staffordshire under the following one and only Lot: Lot 1: Generic Framework Provider of Personalised Support and Care Within Health and Social Care, service users can have a range of needs, which may broadly fit into (but not restricted to): one or more of the following service categories: learning disability physical disability and sensory impairment older people mental health.3/5.
The provider must have an understanding of the needs of the service categories; ensure that they are able to provide these services and to employ a work force that is appropriately skilled, experienced and diverse in order to meet the assessed needs. The provider must have immediately available resource and must not be reliant on recruitment to deliver the services. We would like to invite suppliers interested in this tender opportunity to register and tender (using the above contract reference number) for this procurement process on our E-tendering Pro-actis system https:// www.proactisplaza.com. Once the provider has registered on Proactis they will be asked to provide information on the geographical areas they have capacity to deliver in. The request to apply for a place on unmet demand personalised care and support framework will be assessed by the director of health and care who will review the unmet need in that specific location . If the director of health and care is assured there is unmet demand in that location then the tender documentation will be issued to providers to complete. If there is no demand in an area the tender documents will not be issued as Providers are only required in the areas where demand is not being covered by previously let frameworks and there is unmet need. The tender documentation includes full details of criteria required to obtain a place on this framework. If successful, this framework will be used to place care packages only when the use of personalised support and care framework is unable to fulfil the care packages. The Council will keep a record of all applications to this framework and if the geographical locations of unmet need changes providers will be approached to establish if they still wish to complete the tender process for that geographical location. Providers are encouraged to reapply if their immediate resource availability changes over time into different geographical locations
