The Appropriate Adults (AA) Service covers both statutory and non-statutory service which has been designed for 2 cohorts of service users: children and vulnerable adults. The DPS ensures that the AA Service reflects relevant legislation, case law and Codes of Practice. The role of the Appropriate Adult is to safeguard the interests, rights, entitlements and welfare of children and vulnerable people who are suspected of a criminal offence by ensuring that they are treated in a fair and just manner and can participate effectively. Providers will be expected to follow the national standards and these standards will be applicable to all further competitions and call off contracts from this DPS.
The DPS will cover the period from 8th December 2020 to 7th December 2024 with two options to extend for an additional 24 months. The first decision to extend the contract period will be taken by the end of July 2024 and will be dependent on satisfactory completion of all aspects of the contract to date, the current market conditions for this category and YPO’s contracting structures. The maximum contract period will therefore be 8 years, from 8th December 2020 to 7th December 2028 (subject to an annual review, incorporating price negotiations and KPI performance). .
