Pomery Charlotte, Haringey Borough Council

Dear Mr Knowles,

 

Thank you for your request for information received on 07 September 2020,
in which you asked for the following information related to commissioning
of semi-independent provisions: (our reference: LBH/10251920):

 

1.     Do you use a framework for your providers of Semi Independent
Accommodation for Looked After Children (LAC) aged 16 plus?

Yes. The London Borough of Haringey has recently implemented the use of
Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) through SProc.Net to procure Home Support,
Supported Living, Residential care and Nursing as well as semi-independent
provisions. This means that only approved and enrolled providers on
SProc.Net will be able to receive new requirements to provide care and
submit their offers.

Providers of care and support must register for accreditation and
enrolment. The Council will not be able to commission services until this
is completed. The portal is open for providers to complete the
accreditation and enrolment and will remain open for the lifetime of the
contract, this means providers are able to submit an application at any
point and, once it is approved, they will be able to view requirements and
submit offers.  Please visit demand.sproc.net for registration and to see
all of the relevant documentation.

 

1.2. If the answer to Question 1.1 is yes, please let me know the name of
the framework that you use. See above.

1.3. Please let me know the date that it will be renewed – This is an open
framework. See above.

1.4. Do you make use of spot purchases outside of this framework? No.

 

2.1. If you don't use a Framework, do you instead have a Preferred
Supplier List (PSL) of providers of Semi Independent Accommodation for LAC
aged 16 plus?  N/A – See above.

2.2. If the answer to Question 2.1 is yes, please let me know the date
that this PSL will be renewed.  See above.

2.3. Do you make use of spot purchases outside of this PSL? – See above

 

3. Who is the person within the council who would be in charge of the
Framework or PSL of providers of Semi Independent Accommodation for LAC
aged 16 plus?

Farzad Fazilat, Head of Service, Brokerage and Quality Assurance:
[1][email address].
