Is subject to call in?: Yes


Purpose of Report: Reablement services is an important provision that provides the opportunity to meet the duties of the Care Act 2014 s2 (duty to prevent, reduce or delay needs for care and support for all adults). The current Reablement Service contract is coming to an end on 31/03/2023, the commissioning team are in the process of recommissioning the service. The purpose of the report is for Executive Meeting to review the report and recommendations to come to a decision on the proposal to approach the market to complete a competitive tendering process to secure a Reablement Service for York.

The Executive will be asked to approve the recommendation to approach the market to complete a competitive tendering process to secure a Reablement Service for York.




                         i.         Approved the approach to commission a reablement service through a competitive tendering process.


Reason:     The option proposed will comply with CYC’s Contract

Procedure Rules in terms of completing an open, fair, and transparent process as the market has not been approached since 2017. The procurement procedure is subject to the Light Touch Regime under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and will be completed as an Open Procurement Procedure and within the timescales in Appendix A. The Open Procurement Procedure timetable will enable this to be completed prior to the expiry date of the current waiver. The provision of Reablement Services reduces the need

for more costly residential care home services whilst maintaining peoples’ independence via a short-term intervention enabling them to return home. The recommission of this service creates the potential to enhance the service with the inclusion of an Occupational Therapist at the front door determining the level of care and support, equipment and technology required to maximise customers independence, whilst increasing throughput through the service maximising the use of the Councils financial envelope and ultimately reducing the number of expensive residential care placements and better outcomes for people.


                        ii.         Agreed to delegate authority to the Corporate Director of Adult Services and Integration (“DASS”), in consultation with Chief Finance Officer (151 Officer) to determine the provisions of the new Contract, and to award and conclude the final Contract following the competitive tendering process.


Reason:     This will enable the Contract Award to be implemented

within the timescales outlined in Appendix A.
