Dear Provider, Buckinghamshire County Council is inviting providers to complete an application form to be considered for inclusion on a Preferred Provider List for the provision of Supported Living and Residential Care Services. The providers who are successful in their application form will be placed on the Preferred Provider List for the client groups they believe they are capable of providing. These are listed in the documentation. For clarity – acceptance on to a list enables the Provider to respond to capability assessments and related mini competitions, which the Council opens when a requirement arises. These are for specific provision of care and support services in designated accommodation provided by or on behalf of the Council. You are NOT required to be on the preferred lists to provide accommodation based services on a spot contractual basis in or out of County. The Preferred List commenced on the 15th January 2014. The list opens every six months and is subject to the Council approval process. The Preferred List will be in place for 3 years until January 2017.
