II.1.4)Short description:

Royal Greenwich faces two key challenges in the provision of accommodation-based services for people with a learning disability. Firstly, much of the existing stock in which RBG accommodates people is not suitable to meet the needs of service users. In addition, there is a lack of capacity to accommodate people in the borough.

Adults’ and Older People’s Services’ strength is in the delivery of social care; either directly or through commissioned services. The Directorate’s expertise is not in developing housing solutions. Therefore Royal Greenwich wishes to commission a partner to work with officers to develop and project manage the delivery of a strategy to deliver housing solutions that are of good quality, support people to achieve their aspirations, are efficient to manage and are future proof.

II.2.4)Description of the procurement:

The Learning Disability Housing Strategy will apply to the borough as a whole but its focus will primarily be on improving or replacing Royal Greenwich’s directly managed provision and those premises within the large block contract that the Council holds with an external provider. It will also address the current under supply of accommodation-based services in the borough.

Our preferred partner will have a demonstrated track record of delivering housing solutions for people with a disability and of putting service users at the centre of service planning and design.

The contract will be for 4 years with an option to extend for up to a maximum of 3 years. The value of the contract will be in the region of 150 000 GBP per annum.

IV.1.4)Information about reduction of the number of solutions or tenders during negotiation or dialogue
IV.1.6)Information about electronic auction
