Minutes:

The Corporate Director of Health, Housing & Adult Social Care presented a report which sought approval for funding to be paid to the Police & Crime Commissioner (PCC) as lead commissioner for the delivery of Domestic Abuse services.

 

A Domestic Abuse Joint Commissioning Group had been set up with the PCC, North Yorkshire County Council and City of York Council (CYC) to model and administer a new approach to commissioning these services, based on lots. The funding contribution agreed for CYC included £108,446 per year for community victims’ support and £39,143 per year for domestic abuse perpetrator provision. The aim was to begin procurement and award the tender in time for the new services to begin on 1 November, to align with the expiry date of existing contracts.   Executive approval was required in order to comply with Financial Regulations, as the maximum total financial implication over the lifetime of the 5-year contract amounted to £738,000.

 

Officers confirmed that there was a commitment from all parties that there would be no reduction in funding to any area and that the new approach would result in better value for money.

 

Resolved:  (i)      That a funding contribution of up to £12,300 per month be approved, to be paid in arrears to the Police & Crime Commissioner, representing a contribution to Domestic Abuse services across York and North Yorkshire.

 

Reason:     To enable the services to go out to tender as planned.

 

(ii)      That the decision to award the contracts be delegated to the Corporate Director of Health, Housing & Adult Social Care.

 

Reason:     So that the matter can be dealt with at an appropriate level, without the need for a further report to Executive.
