Hampshire Southampton and the Isle of Wight CCG wish to receive responses to an Invitation to Tender (ITT,) from suitably qualified and experienced providers with the necessary capacity and capability, (or a demonstrable ability to provide the necessary capacity and capability), to provide Supported Living care provision services, for individuals and cohorts with complex needs and who have Learning Disabilities and/ or Autism.

Total Quantity or Scope

This approach has been informed by market engagements carried out since December 2020. The CCG is developing a joint housing pathway with Hampshire County Council and other councils with in the Integrated Care System to develop suitable housing options, therefore, this tender relates to the care and support element only. The Contracting Authorities wish to change from a care package placement process of mainly spot purchasing, to a structured and fully contracted provision, where care package placements are selected from a Learning Disability and Autism Qualified Provider List (QPL) for the Services, serving GP registered patients for the participating contracting authorities. The Contracting Authorities intend to commission new placements, develop services to meet small cohorts of individuals and transfers of existing packages, (when required), with providers who are under contract on the LDA QPL. Spot purchasing will only take place where absolutely no other option is available to meet a service user's needs. Through contract compliance, the key drivers are a structured process that selects a provider that best meets clinical need first, proffers best practice service outcomes, has formal mechanisms for service user reviews and clinical change management, plus transparency of pricing through structured rates. The Commissioners wish to contract with up to 12 providers, who are qualified to deliver the Specification and have tendered acceptable price rate cards, to maximise capacity in the geographical area served by the participating contracting authorities.
