Providers are asked to consider the content of the Presentation (BBCL Presentation) and the Fostering Market Position Statements (FMPS) for each of the BBCL Councils. As this is a BBCL collaboration you will find that the commissioning intentions within the four FMPSs are the same.

The BBCL Market Engagement Response document gives providers an opportunity to comment on:

• our analysis of the current position;

• the draft commissioning intentions; and

• any other element of the documents.

There is also opportunity to identify your interest in being involved in the further development of these projects.

We are keen to benefit from your experience and expertise at this early stage of the process. We expect that views will change as our work together progresses and we both better understand the position.

The documents can be found at https://www.lancashire.gov.uk/business/tenders-and-procurement/tenders/foster-care-commissioning-intentions-market-engagement/.

Please submit the completed document by email to back cypcommissioningadmin@lancashire.gov.uk by 11 a.m. on Friday the 24th of July.
