ICB to make a decision on a contract
Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Social Care and Aging Well / Assistant Director – Commissioning seeking approval of a direct award for the placement of an adult with complex autistic needs.
To extend the current arrangement could result in the risk of legal challenge.
1. That the formal closure of the former Dingle Farm project be approved and the original indicative award of this contract be withdrawn.
2. That the direct award of the contract for Person A’s residential and care needs to the current provider through the GM Flexible Purchasing System for LD through the development of new provision in Heywood be approved.
Reason for resolution
There is a risk that the current provider could cease the placement, which would result in escalation of needs and a highly expensive out-of-area placement.
