The Chief Officer, Social Work approved the extension of the above contract. The contract contains provision for an extension period, originally up to twenty four months. Previous extensions have been utilised and there now remains nine months of contract extension available. The proposal is to extend for seven months from the 1st September 2023 to 31st March 2024 only, due to a lack of clarity around future budgets. The value of the extension will be £169,864 and represents a slimmed down version of previous service delivery due to the council’s ongoing budgetary challenges. This decision was approved in a previous DDR which is attached.
