Commissioning intentions and the role of the Market Development Team
Personalisation means change Wider public sector reforms designed to give more choice, control and power to individual citizens and local communities. Commissioning role within social care is changing Personal budgets will mean a move away from block contracting, with more purchasing decisions being made by individuals.
Commissioning Community Life Choices Existing contractual arrangements are due to end September 2012 New commissioning arrangements need to encompass principles of personalisation Greater choice and control for service users in commissioning services
Commissioning principles People who are eligible for social care services will be allocated a Personal Budget – the amount of money available to spend on meeting their support needs. When a persons Support Plan has been agreed, they can get their Personal Budget in several different ways: 1.A Cash Payment – paid straight into the persons bank account (this needs to be a separate account just for this money). 2.A Third Party Cash Payment – paid to someone else who will manage the money for the person. There are several ways of doing this: (a)Payment to a Family Carer or other Supporter (b)Payment to a Provider Managed Account (c)Payment to a separate Independent Payments Service The third party is accountable to the Customer, who is accountable to the County Council. 3.A Managed Budget – the Council will hold onto the budget and buy the persons care and support. 4.A Combination of a Managed Budget and a Cash Payment, or a Managed Budget and a Third Party Cash Payment.
A Framework Agreement for Commissioning Managed Services Framework Agreement will provide a mechanism for commissioning services where services users choose for their services to be organised/commissioned by the Council Tender process will run during 2012 to select providers to be part of the Framework Agreement Aim to be operational from 1 st October 2012 Market Development team will be working to set up the Framework Agreement This work will include engagement with providers, customers and other stakeholders
