Cambridgeshire County Council Children’s External Placements Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)
Reference number: DN380759
Cambridgeshire County Council (CCC) invites potential providers to join their Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) under the light touch regime for the supply of services in respect of external placements for children and young people aged 0-18 (up to 19 for children and adults with Special Educational Needs and Disability — SEND) in Cambridgeshire, neighbouring authorities and where directed by specific care plans, nationally.
The tender is led by CCC, however CCC and Peterborough City Council (PCC) have made strategic decision to combine roles and departments to manage services across both local authorities. Peterborough will have access to the DPS in their own right.
The spend is across the 2 local authorities for all four lots as listed above, however it the local authorities’ intention to reduce this spend through application of the DPS, improving outcomes for individual children and the use of the mini-competitions with the DPS over its lifetime.
