Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
1. That, the requirements of competition be excluded and Rule 2.1 of the Contract Procurement Rules be suspended;
2. That, the Head of Adult Services be granted Delegated Authority to enter into a contract with Ategi, for the provision of a Shared Lives Support Service for Adults until 30 April 2020;
3. That, the Head of Adult Services be granted Delegated Authority to, if required, undertake a public consultation in regard to arrangements after the 30 April 2020.
Reason for Decisions:
To enable the Council to enter into a new contract with Ategi which will provide the Council with a legally binding agreement setting out the approved terms of working. This will offer protection to the Council in the event of a dispute and ensure that the provider delivers in line with the Council’s expectations.
Permission to enter into a new contractual term with Ategi will ensure this vital service is not disrupted whilst Officers undertake an analysis of service demand and develop an optimal service model in order to undertake a procurement exercise.
If the arrangements after the 30 April 2020 results in a change to the type and level of service, entering into public consultation will ensure that the views and opinions of the public inform the Council’s decision making.
Implementation of Decisions:
The decisions will be implemented after the three day call in period.
