Kent County Council

Dear Ms Daly

 

Thank you for your request for information made under the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA) 2000, relating to residential care. I am pleased to
provide the response below:

 

1) Since April 2014 how many adults with a learning disability applying
for residential care has Kent County Council submitted for tender on the
internet care portal for care providers to bid for their care packages?
None.

 

Residential placements for adults with a learning disability are not
submitted for bids on the care portal. For Learning Disability, Mental
Health and Physical Disability, residential contracts are awarded to new
services/providers following the completion of the Residential Cost Model
process and fees being deemed as value for money, taking into account the
need for the specific service. Once the cost model process has been
completed individual placements are made to a service through the KCC
Adult Purchasing team, taking into consideration the needs of the
individual.

 

2) How many of these people lacked capacity? N/A

 

3) How many adults with a learning disability has Kent County Council
successfully placed through the tendering process since April 2014? N/A

 

4) How many of those successfully placed lacked capacity? N/A

 

If you are unhappy with this response, and believe KCC has not complied
with legislation, please ask for a review by following our complaints
process; details can be found at this link

on our website. Please quote reference FOI/16/2110.

 

If you still remain dissatisfied following an internal review, you can
appeal to the Information Commissioner, who oversees compliance with the
Freedom of Information Act 2000. Details of what you need to do, should
you wish to pursue this course of action, are available from the
Information Commissioner’s website [2]http://www.ico.org.uk/concerns.

 

Yours sincerely
