Report by Director for Social & Community Services (CMDASC4).
In the Summer 2014 there was an original intention to re-tender the Owen’s Way contract under the existing Learning Disability Framework but subsequent commissioning meetings indicated that it would be more favourable to align this service with other similar services to be tendered under the new Learning Disability & Physical Disability Framework in April 2015, where the existing Framework could be improved. This synchronisation with other services would enable commissioners to continue to meet priority need for this service while at the same time optimise other service developments with other supported living services. This decision has only been made recently as part of a review of the services involved, and supported by the continuing progression of the new Framework to completion in Spring 2015. It is therefore considered that the most favourable option is to approve an exemption to the Council's Contract Procedure Rules for this supported living service for people with a learning disability.
