Direct Award of Contracts for Services for People with Complex Needs
Torbay Council is embarking on a new and locally experimental model of commissioning an alliance for complex adults. The scope of which will include drug and alcohol treatment services, domestic abuse and sexual violence services and supported housing. The novel nature of commissioning and procuring these services means large aspects are untested and need a comprehensive level of rigour applied to test the process.
As this procurement process will take longer to establish than standard procurements, the new service contracts won’t commence until 1.10.2020. To provide stability in the system whilst this innovative procurement is undertaken, Torbay council intends to directly award (subject to internal approval) the following short term contracts to its incumbent providers:
— Drugs and Alcohol,
— Leonard Stocks Hostel Provision,
— Torbay Domestic Abuse Services.
Drugs and Alcohol Services
Walnut Lodge Surgery, Walnut Road, Torquay TQ2 6HP, Shrublands House, Morgan avenue, Torquay, TQ2 5RS and various settings throughout Torbay.
Drugs and alcohol services, to be provided by Torbay and South Devon NHS Foundation Trust from 1.4.2019 to 30.9.2020.
Torbay is currently embarking on a new and innovative model of commissioning an alliance for adults with multiple and complex needs. The scope of which will include drug and alcohol treatment services, domestic abuse and sexual violence services and supported housing.
Because of the novel nature of commissioning and procuring these services as an alliance, there are large aspects that are untested and need a comprehensive level of rigour applied to test the process. Therefore this procurement process will take longer to establish than standard procurements and as a result, the new service won’t be in place until October 2020.
Drug and alcohol services are specialist treatment services that work with one of the most complex and risky groups in our community. They provide medical and psychosocial interventions in accordance with national clinical standards and legal frameworks for those who are seeking support in addressing their substance misuse issues.
Because of the significant risks these individuals may pose to themselves and others, the services need to provide a significant amount of complex and specialist support to enable the individuals to make progress in recovery.
Leonard Stocks Hostel Provision
Leonard Stocks – Shekinah, 228 Union Street, Torquay, TQ2 5QS.
Homelessness services/hostel provision, to be provided by Langley House Trust from 1.6.2020 to 30.9.2020.
Leonard Stocks provided by Langley House Trust (Shekinah) deliver a support and housing management service to 24 people in the Leonard Stocks building. The client base are adults who are homeless and have a support need and local connection.
This service seeks to engage individuals in breaking their cycle of homelessness and exclusion through the provision of person centred, recovery focused support. The ultimate aim is for an individual to move to, and maintain their own tenancy, engaging in community activities, and employment, training or education.
Torbay Domestic Abuse Services
Torbay Domestic Abuse Service – Sanctuary Supported Living, at various settings throughout Torbay.
Services for people experiencing domestic abuse, provided by Sanctuary Supported Living from 1.10.2019 to 30.9.2020.
Torbay Domestic Abuse Service delivers a range of services to people experiencing domestic violence and abuse aged 16 years and over. This includes 12 units of supported accommodation dispersed throughout Torbay, Independent Domestic Violence Advocacy, outreach support, and adults, children’s and voluntary community perpetrator programmes. Due to the nature of the client group this service provides specialist support around risk identification and safety planning, as well as more general support to enable individuals and their children to break the pattern of abuse.
Afdeling IV: Procedure
The Authority has as yet not entered into new contracts with these suppliers and is advising the market that, subject to internal approval and the outcome of this VEAT process, is intending to do so.
We are awarding the contract without prior publication under paragraphs 2(b)(ii) and 5 of Article 32 of Directive 2014/24/EU. The technical reason [2(b)(ii)] being that setting up an Alliance for future contracting is a new approach. It will require sufficient time to engage with the market to ensure they fully understand the concept and the culture shift required to work in this way. The authority will run a procurement process to put the alliance partnership in place and it is expected this will happen in Autumn 2019. The Alliance will then need time to get established before the process of commissioning new services can begin.
The authority has a duty to provide these services and cannot be without this provision for any period of time, the procurement of a short term arrangement to meets needs whilst requirements are properly established is not considered practical as it:
— will remove focus from the procurement of the alliance and the considerable market development needed which could result in further delays to commissioning new services,
— will result in additional cost and inconvenience to the authority and suppliers who would be required to participate in 2 procurement processes rather than 1,
— is in the best interests of the people already using the services to keep to a minimum the number of times they need to transition from one service provider to another.
In accordance with paragraph 5 of Article 32 of Directive 2014/24/EU the new contracts will provide identical services to those being delivered by the suppliers under their current contracts, which were procured in accordance with Article 26 of Directive 2014/24/EU or awarded in accordance with Article 12 of Directive 2014/24/EU.
