Lambeth Council Home Care Procurement Survey

Dear Providers, We are undertaking a brief survey to inform Lambeth council's Home Care procurement next steps - please see link Please could you submit your response before 2pm on the 18th of September 2020. Lambeth Council are planning to tender their home care services at the end of October/ early November 2020. The Council will be introducing a neighbourhood model with ten localities. The localities will be aligned with neighbourhood nursing and primary care networks and contracts will be awarded for a specific locality. The tender will be a two stage, restricted tender. The Invitation to Tender will be assessed on 100% quality. There will be no price evaluation, as a set rate prescribed by the Council will apply to all providers. The set rate has been developed in line with the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services ( ADASS) price modelling principles. The procurement was originally intended to be published around March/April but was postponed to enable the Council and the provider market to focus on the management of Covid-19 implications in the critical early stages. As we have observed providers successfully managing Covid-19 considerations and ensuring continuity of care, we have decided to recommence the procurement process. In recognition of the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and winter pressures, we will incorporate deadlines that are longer than the minimum tender requirements, with approximately seven weeks to complete the Standard Selection Questionnaire and a further seven week deadline for providers invited to tender (ITT). I would appreciate if you could respond to the two key questions on survey monkey about the planned procurement date and the inclusion of a fixed rate, please see link If you have any difficulties with survey monkey please contact Carole Ferguson -
