Abstract:

The Council wishes to maintain the best possible care for service users by procuring in the most effective way to stabilise and sustain its providers. The purpose of this procurement exercise will be to appoint a number of providers to the DPS, who have the relevant skills and experience and registered with the CQC, to deliver personal care and support (domiciliary care) in people’s homes.

Kirklees Council wishes to purchase services to support people to live successfully in their own homes with an appropriate range of person centred services and to enable service users receiving care to lead a good quality of life, maximising their independence, remain safe and comfortable in their own homes for as long as possible whilst maintaining their individual dignity, privacy, freedom of choice and treating them with respect. The services are provided 365 days and nights each year if required for service users residing within the Kirklees area whom have been assessed by the Council as requiring domiciliary support services.

For the purpose of the domiciliary care services, Kirklees has been divided into 6 geographical zones. Each zone has already been awarded to one single principal provider. There is also a domiciliary care framework agreement (DC Framework) which underpins the principal providers across all the zones. The principal provider contracts and DC framework expire 3 December 2020 with an option to extend for a further 2 years up to 3 December 2022. Kirklees intend that the Principal providers in each zone will provide approximately 70 % of contracted hours of service within that zone. The remaining 30 % is offered to the DC framework providers.

The domiciliary care services DPS will provide additional capacity to access the market for services when neither the principal providers nor DC framework providers are able to pick up packages of care.

The DPS will initially run for a period of 60 months with the successful economic operators, with the provision to extend the DPS for a further period, or for successive periods, for a further 60 months.

In accordance with Regulation 86 (Notices of decisions to award a contract or conclude a framework), Regulation 87 (Standstill periods) and Chapter 6 (Applications to Court) of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/102), the contracting authority incorporated a minimum ten (10) calendar day standstill period at the point that information on the award of the contract was communicated to economic operators. This period allowed any unsuccessful economic operator(s) to seek further debriefing from the contracting authority before the award of the Contract to the successful economic operators. Such additional information should be requested from the address at Sections I.1) and I.3) of this notice above. If an appeal regarding the award of the contract has not been successfully resolved, then the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (SI 2015/102) provide for aggrieved parties who have been harmed or are at risk of harm by a breach of the rules to take action in the High Court (England, Wales and Northern Ireland). Any such action must be started within thirty(30) days beginning with the date when the aggrieved party first knew or sought to have grounds for starting the proceedings had arisen. The Court may extend the time limited for starting proceedings where the Court considers that there is a good reason for doing so, but not so as to permit proceedings to be started more than three (3) months after that date. Where the contract has not been awarded, the Court may order the setting aside of the award decision or order the contracting authority to amend any document and may award damages. If however the contract has been awarded, the Court may only award damages or, where the contract award procedures have not been followed correctly, declare the contract to be ineffective.
