Integrated Community Equipment Service (ICES)
Buckinghamshire County Council (from 1 April 2020 Buckinghamshire Council), in partnership with NHS organisations in Buckinghamshire, is looking to establish a more singular integrated community equipment service.
The service will consist of the procurement, storage, supply, distribution, repair, collection, recycling, maintenance and refurbishment of a range of community equipment. This will be for simple aids to daily living, complex aids to daily living, sensory aids, environmental control solutions and telecare/telehealth (including associated services).
There will be an option to widen the contract scope to include long term wheelchairs and continence products subject to proven cost effectiveness. The intention is to include this after the first year of the contract.
Recognising the changing requirements in health and social care, the commissioners are seeking to purchase services more innovatively through a single point of contact provider who has experience and expertise across the service range.
The commissioners recognise that, whilst some providers may be able to provide the whole range of services being considered, some providers may wish to work in partnership with other organisations.

In line with regulation 72, it is intended that this modification would allow the existing provider to continue to deliver the service for a further 6 months during which a procurement exercise can take place, where this has been unable to be completed due to the unforeseeable circumstances of the Covid-19 pandemic.
(i) The need for modification has been brought about by circumstances which a diligent contracting authority could not have foreseen; Covid-19 has caused disruption to the procurement process with a significant proportion of the integrated commissioning service focused on responding to the pandemic. This could not have been foreseen or planned for:
(ii) The modification does not alter the overall nature of the contract; it is intended that the contract will be delivered to the existing specification by the existing provider. There are no further extension options for this contract.
(iii) Any increase in price does not exceed 50 % of the value of the original contract or framework agreement; the proposed 6 month modification equates to approximately 8 % of the total contract value.
