Dear Rosey

 

FoI 16746 - Commissioning Services for Children's Services

 

I am writing in response to your request dated 9 February 2018.  This has
been dealt with under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

management? If Yes please name the system?

contract and how long was the contract?

 

Not applicable

 

4.       How do you currently procure your services for Children’s Social
Care, please provide information of the split between the following
methods e.g. via commissioning teams, social workers do it themselves,
panels for expensive care packages, micro-procurement/commissioning

 

Social work teams

 

5.       What is the proportion of the above?

 

Social work teams 100%

 

6.       Do you use/plan to use micro-procurement/commissioning?

 

This is not a term which the Council uses, so no.

Not known – all contracts are with external providers.

No central database or system to provide information.  There are no

are Regional Framework contracts
