Decision:

The Deputy Director of Adults and Health approved the request to commence the process to procure a specialist care and support provider for the Kirklands Autism Service in Leeds.  The contract will be awarded for an initial period of 6 years (with an option to extend for a maximum period of 48 months in any combination). The value of the initial contract period is set at an anticipated total maximum cost of £9 million (£1.5 million per annum).  Should any extension period be utilised then will be subject to a separate decision at the appropriate time.  The anticipated total maximum cost of the service, should all of the available extension provisions be utilised, will be £15 million (£1.5 million per annum). The formal decision to let the contract to a preferred provider will be taken at a later date following a decision by Executive Board to approve capital expenditure on the programme. Please see para. 22.

 

To note that officers on behalf of Adults and Health Integrated Commissioning and Procurement and Commercial Services (PACS) will complete all the necessary actions to ensure that this contract is in place by November 2022, including a suitable lead-in time.
