II.1.4)Short description:

 

The Royal Borough of Kingston Upon Thames is seeking to commission a ‘Flexible Framework Agreement’ provision for Home Care and Reablement Services consisting of multiple suitably qualified providers under which it can call-off via direct awards. This procurement comprises of two lots.

• lot 1 for care at home services; and

• lot 2 reablement.

The ‘Flexible Framework Agreement’ will be commissioned under the Light Touch Regime (implemented through regulations 74-77 of the Public Contract Regulations 2015). This flexible framework agreement differs from those set up under the non-Light Touch Regime in that the Council may exercise it’s flexibility to periodically ‘open’ the flexible framework for providers to submit applications to join, particularly if it needs to increase the capacity or respond to emerging needs. If the Council decides to open up the flexible framework agreement for applications it will do so on the same terms and conditions and on the same criteria.

The duration of the flexible framework agreement will be 5 years, plus two 12-month extension periods at the absolute sole discretion of the Council, creating a maximum possible flexible framework term of 7 years. Call-off contracts will be of varying durations according to the assessed needs of service users.
