What is a Lead Provider and what are its responsibilities? Shaun Bennett
Lead Provider & Partners Defining the Arrangements: Sole ProviderSubmits an ITT as a single provider (with capacity to cover the whole zone) but may sub contract post award stage in some circumstances ConsortiumSubmits an ITT as a single entity but could sub contract post award stage Lead ProviderSubmits an ITT as a partnership, either as: A consortium group where there is a formal agreement between partners; or A contracting partnership where there is a more informal arrangement between partners. The lead provider can sub contract other organisations post award stage
Responsibilities of a Lead Provider ITT Stage Award & Post Award Stage Call Off Stage Service/contract monitoring/ management Payments
Contract Monitoring Proposals Max Sillars
Contract Monitoring Principles Approach to quality and organisational processes checked at tender stage Streamlined, consistent range of monitoring tools that providers will use to submit reporting requirements Focus upon preventing issues, & continuous improvement Desk top assessment will triangulate with compliments, issues or complaints to inform a rolling inspection and investigation schedule

Contract Monitoring Issues Balancing service user and commissioner needs against the need to minimise bureaucracy and reduce costs Agreeing consistent tools that can read across service areas, e.g. QAF Arrangements with sub-contractors
Call-off Proposals Nicola Tribble
Calling Off Services Standard Brokerage By price for standard needs Personal Brokerage By mini-competition for more complex needs (how outcomes are to be met and price) Services will be called off from the framework either by:
Calling Off Services Standard Brokerage and Personal Brokerage can call-off services from any of the lots Standard Brokerage will focus on personal care where a standard package is usually required Personal Brokerage will focus on community based support and regulated community based support Volume contracts can be called off from the framework agreement by procurement
The Call-Off Process Currently it is proposed that there are two stages to the call-off process, which are: Stage 1 Stage 2 Choice of provider An individual can choose a provider within the financial envelope of their personal budget Choice not exercised The Authority reserves the right to rotate providers where call off without competition could result in a monopoly within a zone
The Call-Off Process Any rotation of providers is only likely to apply to the personal care lot and will only involve those providers within a financial envelope.
Group Discussion 6 groups 45 minutes Nominate chair and note taker please Feedback key issue from each of the following questions – 5 minutes per group Full feedback will be circulated
