Decision details

Older Adult and Disability Services - Contract Waivers

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Health and Social Care (job-share)

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

A number of services commissioned by the Council for older adults and people with a disability are subject to service reviews in order to deliver savings from adult social care budgets through service remodelling. This involves commissioners working with providers, partners, users and carers the public to review services with a view to recommissioning, reprocuring and/or remodelling services as appropriate. This work has been progressing during the current financial year but this represents a significant programme of work and there is a need for a further contract extension for a number of contracts for a period of one year with an option to extend for a further year and this is being sought through a waiver request.
