Supported Living Recommissioning Summary

Closed 10 May 2022

Opened 8 Apr 2022

Overview

Following a review of the current commissioning arrangements for Supported Living services in Staffordshire, supported by intelligence gathered from provider feedback and a formal provider survey, a report was presented to Cabinet in January 2022. An options appraisal was undertaken which proposed three options for procurement and contracting of services and one option in relation to pricing arrangements. Please see the recommissioning summary in appendix 1 of this letter.

The following decisions were made at Cabinet on the 19th January 2022:

  1. That the outcome of the options appraisal for future commissioning arrangements for Supported Living services in Staffordshire, be endorsed in principal
  2. That engagement with stakeholders to discuss the options and proposals begin
  3. That the feedback from stakeholders be used to potentially refine the options appraisal and develop recommendations for future commissioning arrangements for Supported Living services in Staffordshire, with these recommendations to be brought to a future Cabinet meeting for approval – by no later than September 2022
  4. That the additional one-year contract extension available in the current Supported Living contracts be used to extend these contracts until 30th September 2023.

The closing date for feedback is Friday 29th April 2022 at 5 pm.
