Supported Living refers to situations in which an individual receives care and/or support designed to enable independence in the individuals own home which they may own, rent or otherwise occupy but which is not a residential care establishment. The personal care is provided under separate contractual arrangements to those for the individual’s housing. The accommodation is often shared, but can be single household.

Procurement Process The procurement process is an Open Application Process under the Light Touch Regime, (PCR 2015, regulations 74 – 77) for health and social care contracts. Under Regulation 76, the council is free to establish a procedure, provided that, the procedure is sufficient to ensure compliance with the principles of transparency and equal treatment of economic operators (suppliers).

Supported Living refers to situations in which an individual receives care and/or support designed to enable independence in the individuals own home which they may own, rent or otherwise occupy but which is not a residential care establishment. The personal care is provided under separate contractual arrangements to those for the individual’s housing. The accommodation is often shared, but can be single household. The care and support that people receive is often continuous, but is tailored to their individual needs. It aims to enable the individual to be as autonomous and as independent as possible. Procurement Process The procurement process is an Open Application Process under the Light Touch Regime, (PCR 2015, regulations 74 – 77) for health and social care contracts. Under Regulation 76, the council is free to establish a procedure, provided that, the procedure is sufficient to ensure compliance with the principles of transparency and equal treatment of economic operators (suppliers). The services are split into seven (7) lots as follows: • LOT 1: Learning Disabilities & Co-Morbidities (LD) • LOT 2: Autism (AUT) • LOT 3: Physical Disability (AUT) • LOT 4: Sensory Disability (SD) • LOT 5: Mental Health (Dementia) (MHD) • LOT 6: Mental Health (Functional) (MHF) • LOT 7: 16/17 year olds with Complex Needs (CYP) The Framework is a 2-Part Open Application Process. Part 1 – All suppliers that satisfy all the minimum requirements of the standard selection questionnaire (SSQ) and due diligence process shall be appointed to the framework. Part 2 – All suppliers appointed to the framework will be further assessed to determine their individual framework ranking position. This assessment and ranking will be completed for each lot that is applied for. All suppliers who are appointed to the framework and awarded a ranking position will be invited to quote for referral packages for individuals, in rank order. All suppliers who apply for an individual lot and are successful will be appointed to the framework for that lot. There is no limit to the number of suppliers, that can join the framework and suppliers may apply for, and be appointed to, one or more lots. The Initial Application process will be open for a period of 40 days to encourage supplier participation. The contracting period is expected to commence from August 2019.
