Procurement Award for a Strategic Delivery Partner for Adults Social Care

The report follows on from an earlier procurement strategy report [previous kdn reference to be inserted] and recommends the award of a  two-phase contract for a strategic deliver partner to support the Adult Social Care and Health Directorate to deliver the transformation and savings required over the next 3 years. The programme of work to be delivered will enhance the pace of delivery within the existing Strategic Managing Demand programme.


The Adult Social Care and Health Directorate will have saving requirements within the new 2024-27 Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) for the Council. The requested procurement of a strategic delivery partner within this report is a core strategy for the directorate to identify and enable evidenced savings to be agreed and delivered; as well as a substantial transformation of the core service model.


Decision type: Key

Reason Key: Expenditure > £1,000,000;

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Wards affected: (All Wards);

Notice of proposed decision first published: 12/10/2023

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
The previous GE notice (KDN7423HASC) related to the procurement strategy, and it had not been clear to the lead officer that a separate award strategy and therefore additional key decision notice was required.

It will slow down the procurement of the delivery partner which could have financial implications for delivery of new savings in 2024/25.

Financial Impact: Expenditure or savings of up to £5,000,000;

Decision due: Not before 20th Oct 2023 by Corporate Director of Adult Social Care & Health

Lead member: Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care

Lead director: Corporate Director of Adult Social Care & Health

Department: Adult Social Care Directorate
