Dynamic Purchasing System — Residential Care Services for Adults with Learning Disabilities
The authority is seeking to establish a dynamic purchasing system (‘DPS’) for the provision of care home services for adults with a learning disability. The DPS will be used as the mechanism through which the authority will procure care home services for adults with a learning disability, and which places a strong emphasis on outcomes for adults, so that their needs and aspirations can be met. It is a key priority of the authority to protect the most vulnerable by taking a person-centered approach, helping residents on the island to enjoy a good quality of life and supporting people to live as independently as they can in their own communities whenever possible. The DPS is to go live on 16.10.2017 and will operate for a period of 48 months with the option to extend for a further period of up to 24 months.
Please note: this DPS was originally established within the adam DPS system and has been transferred in to the authority's eTendering system — ProContract. If you have already been appointed on to the residential care services for adults with learning disabilities DPS then you do not need to reapply.
The DPS was originally operated using sproc.net hosted by adam. The use of sproc.net to utilise the dynamic purchasing system ended on 30.11.2019.
