Description

The Commissioner (Coventry City Council and Coventry and Rugby Clinical Commissioning Group (CRCCG)) is looking to establish a Framework for emergency cover for short term home support services for adults across the City. The Service will bolster existing contracted provision, which is already in place with 3 contracted Providers. This requirement is as a direct result of COVID-19, where it has been identified that additional capacity will be needed to ensure services can be delivered to vulnerable service users. The service is primarily to support hospital discharge.

The COVID-19 outbreak has given rise to an urgent need for the specified service. This does not give the Council sufficient time to comply with the usual timescales for this procurement. The Council considers this to be a state of urgency which it has duly substantiated. Accordingly, accelerated time limits, as permitted under the Public Contract Regulations 2015, and as permissible under the Light Touch Regime, are used in respect of this procurement. Therefore, Tender return timescales are – Monday 6th April 2020 – Time: 10am
