CWC19112 - Home Care Wolverhampton
Main contract details
The specification has three main service elements; domicilary care, rapid response, and home-based respite for carers. Providers are expected to be able to deliver all these elements, however, where this is not possible providers will still be able to join the framework on a limited basis.
The Council will operate a flexible framework with three tiers of Provider, and a mix of area based 'Lead' provider and city wide coverage.
Inclusion on the framework will also provide occasional access to related special projects, pilots, and help Commissioners reduce 'spot' purchases.
The framework is dynamic and will periodically open to allow new providers to join, and for existing providers to amend their service offer. Providers will have the potential of moving between the three tiers.
Minimum selection criteria will apply and this will include a CQC overall rating higher than 'Inadequate'.
Please refer to the tender documents for further information.
The intention is to award this contract for a period of 3 years plus upto two further 3 year extensions, up to a total of 9 years (to May 2028).
This tender is not a DPS or Dynamic Purchasing System opportunity, where the portal makes such reference, please note this is a Flexible Framework.
