Reason Key: Expenditure > £500,000 and 2 Divisions affected;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved (subject to call-in)

Notice of proposed decision first published: 23/01/2023

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
This decision will be taken as an urgent decision under the council’s general exception procedures (as set out in the Council’s Constitution, Rules on Access to Information Procedure Rules).

Reason for implementing the decision under the council’s general exception rules

The notification of withdrawal of a commissioned provider on Lot 5i of the Community and Accommodation Based Support Pseudo Framework has come at short notice prior to the end of the current contractual term on 31st March 2023. In order to limit the risks associated with having to move vulnerable young adults into alternative accommodation, (potentially at great cost to ourselves and disruption to the service user), the council will need to commence a procurement process as soon as possible in order to appoint and mobilise a replacement provider.

As this decision is urgent, it has not been possible to give the required 28 days notice of this key decision.

Decision due: Between 30 Jan 2023 and 1 Feb 2023 by Cabinet Member - Adult Social Care Delivery

Lead member: Cllr Kathy Williams, Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care Delivery
