Abstract:

Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council wishes to appoint 10 Providers for the provision of a Reablement Service to eligible individuals living in Sandwell. All Providers will be appointed to deliver the Service across the whole of the Borough of Sandwell.

It is anticipated that the Service will support approximately 2000 hours of care per week, however the amount of hours of care per week may vary during the duration of the Agreement.

The Service will provide Reablement services to eligible adults (18 years old and over) aimed at enabling individuals:

• To safely leave hospital where they would otherwise remain in hospital or avoid a hospital admission and remain in their own home or place of residence;

• Provide a short term, time limited (up to 6 weeks) Reablement Service for Adults who have been assessed and have demonstrated the potential to benefit from home care reablement to regain their independence and live well at home after an illness, injury or period of reduced mobility;

The hourly fee rate will be set by the Council and based on the prevailing ASC084 Domiciliary Care Service hourly rate as increased from time to time by the Council. The current Domiciliary Care hourly rate is £18.40 from 1 April 2023 to 31 March 2024. Any increases to this rate normally take place on 1 April each year. Any changes to this rate will be notified in the Award Letter to successful Bidders.

Providers will be required to provide a high-quality service that aligns with the Council's vision for Adult Social Care and whilst participating in the further implementation of the personalisation agenda, giving citizens greater choice and control in this process.

The Sandwell Reablement Service Agreement will commence on 3 June 2024 and will initially run for a 2 year period to 2 June 2026, with the option to extend, subject to review, for up to a maximum of 2 x 12-month periods from 3 June 2026 to 2 June 2027 and 3 June 2027 to 2 June 2028.

Bidders attention is drawn to and they should note the following:

a) There is no guarantee of volumes of work as referrals can decrease and / or increase;

b) There is no guarantee that all Providers will receive an equal share of the work;

c) Providers should be aware that the Council may wish to utilise the eBrokerage system for Referrals in the future, if so then Providers will be notified accordingly and provided with suitable training.

d) Prospective Bidders should seek their own legal advice with regards to TUPE;

e) The Council does not hold any TUPE Information. Details of unsuccessful Incumbent Providers TUPE Contact Points will be sent to successful Bidders in the Award letters;

Reasons for not dividing into Lots:

1) There will be a Borough wide Single Service Model incorporating ten (10) Providers, which will have been determined through the evaluation process;

2) It is expected that providers will accept referrals and deliver Reablement services borough-wide, and therefore by dividing into lots this could restrict services being provided across the Borough and may lead to a restriction of competition;

3) Dividing into lots could risk making the contract excessively technically difficult and/ or expensive to manage;

4) The nature of the Service Model spreads the risk across ten (10) Providers, promotes social value by having a diverse supply base where there will be a range of predominantly local suppliers, and supports the maintenance of a healthy market;
