11 Gateway 1 Procurement Commencement: Recommissioning Supported Living Services in Medway pdf icon PDF 275 KB




This report sought permission to commence the recommissioning of Supported Living Services in Medway.


The report explained that the Council currently operated a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) through which Supported Living services for residents with a learning disability, physical disability, or mental health condition were purchased. This contact commenced in June 2015.


A two-year extension built into the DPS contract had already been exercised with the re-commissioning of this service having been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Commissioners were therefore keen to commence this procurement exercise and so minimise any further delays.


The report was accompanied by an exempt Appendix. This set out financial analysis in respect of this procurement project.


Decision number:



The Cabinet approved the commencement of the project to recommission Supported Living Services in Medway, as set out in paragraph 7.2.4 to the report.



To fulfil the Council’s obligations under the Care Act (2014).


To ensure that Medway residents are supported to live fulfilled and enriched lives.


To continue to ensure best value for money for provision of these services.
