Description

 

Bracknell Forest Council intends to procure a domiciliary care service. Domiciliary Care plays a key role in supporting independence and quality of life, supporting people who live at home to remain there. It also supports the reablement of individuals following hospital admission and is a critical way of delivering the duties arising from the Care Act. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the service is as effective and efficient as possible and that the future commissioning approach has a focus on outcomes, quality and value for money. The service includes personal care.

The council currently purchases domiciliary care services through a Community Based Support (CBS) Framework with 3 providers, and a number of spot contracts.

The CBS contract for this provision was due to end on 31st August 2021, however in light of COVID-19, arrangements are being made for the service to remain in place until 31st March 2022.

Until the new framework is in place the council will consider entering into spot contract arrangements with new providers subject to:
• The provider satisfactorily completing the council’s due diligence checks
• Agreement on price
• Demand for service

The council will be inviting suitably qualified providers to attend a market engagement event which will offer an opportunity to:
• discuss the Council’s vision for the service
• obtain provider feedback, which will help the council build its model for the service.
This is an opportunity to have a conversation with the council when there is not the pressure of bidding for a contract.

The event is being planned for week commencing 22nd March 2021. Due to the circumstances of Covid-19, the conversation is designed to be virtual, and providers will be invited to participate in a 1.5 hour conversation. A “Teams” meeting invite will be sent to interested parties in advance of the event.

To receive an invitation please email contracts.team@bracknell-forest.gov.uk and include in the subject heading: “Market Engagement Event Domiciliary Care”. Please ensure all attendee email addresses are included in the email.

All information pertaining to this PIN will be published
