TENDER OPPORTUNITY Adult Social Services and Housing Personal Care Framework Agreement
The London Borough of Sutton (Sutton Council) is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified organisations for the provision of a Personal Care Framework Agreement. This is an opportunity for CQC registered providers (with the exception of Lot 1) of personal care which can be delivered within the home, the community or in a supported living environment.
The Framework will be for a period of four (4) years with an anticipated commencement date of 1st November 2012.
The Council is tendering this Framework through the London Tenders e-tendering portal, our preferred method of advertising and managing contract opportunities. Prospective Tenderers are advised to register their interest by going to https://www.londontenders.org/procontract/supplier.nsf
The Council wishes to procure the services through a Framework Agreement consisting of 4 lots:
Lot 1 Social Support – basic support to an individual
Lot 2 Personal Care – basic assistance with personal care tasks
Lot 3 Very Skilled Personal Care – high levels of competence in delivering sensitive and complex care tasks
Lot 4 Skilled Behaviour Management – working with vulnerable adults who have challenging and complex needs
Applicants are invited to apply for one or more Lots. It is the intention of the Council to appoint in the range of 20-25 providers across the Framework Agreement.
A pre-qualification questionnaire is available on the portal which the Council shall evaluate to identify the shortlisted suppliers to be invited to tender.
It is the opinion of the London Borough of Sutton that TUPE may apply to this Framework Agreement.
Deadline for expressions of interest and submission of a completed pre-qualification questionnaire is the 23rd April 2012 by (noon). Attachment
