Cambridgeshire County Council, as the Local Authority for the county of Cambridgeshire is considering developing educational provision for children with Autistic Spectrum Condition.

Cambridgeshire County Council wish to identify suppliers who are able to provide up to 20 day school places for children in Key Stage 1-4 with Autistic Spectrum Condition. The number of placements will increase up to 20 over the period of the contract. The contract length is for five years with the opportunity to extend for a further five years. The provision will be carried out on their behalf to requisite standards and within a defined budget. At this preliminary stage of the process, it wishes to invite potential suppliers to an open session to discuss the opportunity and requirements of the provision.

The overall purpose at this stage is to gather a view on the market of suppliers to ensure that this is a viable way forward for the delivery of the Autistic Spectrum Condition Day School as part of its consideration to enter a formal tendering process. It also wishes to offer the opportunity for potential suppliers to provide a challenge in terms of its expectations for standards and costs of delivery.

The objectives of this session are therefore to:
• share the context and background to this initiative
• provide an overview of the children and young people’s needs
• provide an indicative financial envelope
• facilitate dialogue for collaborative opportunities between providers

We see this as a real opportunity for suppliers to work with us to develop new ways of delivery to meet the present and future needs of Cambridgeshire children and young people.

The open session will take place on Monday 19th March 2012. Please register in advance your intention to attend.
