Regarding care brokerage:

And regarding visit charge processing for paying commissioned care providers against the services they have delivered on behalf of the Council:

2. Does the Council have any plans to a) procure a Provider Payment/Council Self-billing cloud software solution (for processing and calculating visit data submitted by commissioned care providers for the visits they have undertaken on behalf of the Council, primarily but not restricted to only domiciliary care) in 2021/2022, and if so when, b) via which procurement route, and c) provide the contact name for the relevant procurement lead / the name of the department leading the procurement within the Council, as well as an indication if and when / how the Council intends to contact or is willing to engage with the market in this regard?
