renewal and what is your process for announcing, advertising and
applying for this opportunity?

3. If you have your own "In House" Service, do you ever spot
purchase to support this service and would the service ever be put
out for tender?

4. Do you have any intention to review the existing provisions in place for your Supervised Contact Service?

5. What is the council's annual spend and forecasted spend on outsourced agencies for
supervised contact for 2018 - 2019 and 2019 - 2020?
