Approved Supplier List (ASL) for the Provision of Nursing Home Services for Older People on the Isle...
Main contract details
In 2017 the Authority published Care Close to Home: A New Strategy for Adult Social Care. Click here (or go to https://www.iow.gov.uk/documentlibrary/view/care-close-to-home-strategy-adult-social-care-) to view the strategy. This strategy sets out a vision to help people to maintain or improve their wellbeing and to live as independently as possible.
Prior to December 2019 the Authority’s contracts with providers for nursing care home services contained considerable detail about the tasks to be delivered as part of the service. The Authority has engaged with the care home market and from December 2019 wishes to contract on the basis of outcomes. This is intended to enable providers more latitude to modernise care home services to meet emerging needs and expectations, and to exercise more flexibility in the use of resources to achieve outcomes in the context of continuing restraints on local authority budgets.
The term of the Approved Supplier List shall be 12 February 2020 (go live date) until 11 February 2028 with the option to extend for up to a further two years at the sole discretion of the Authority. The Authority intends to begin using the Approved Supplier List for Care Agreements as soon as the Approved Supplier List goes live.
The estimated value set out in this notice is the total value for the initial 8 year term and the possible 2 year extension option.
