That the Head of Children and Young People Services be granted delegated authority to enter into a new contract with Action for Children until 31 March 2021 as detailed in the private circulated report.
Reasons for Decision:
Extending the contract with Action For Children 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 Action For Children will ensure this vital front-line service is not disrupted whilst officers undertake an analysis of service demand and the service model in order to undertake a procurement exercise.
Implementation of Decision:
The decision will be implemented after the 3 day call in period.
