Approval to tender for Payroll/Accountancy/Brokerage services for Cash Budget Recipients
To consider the attached report of the Cabinet Member for Healthy Lives / Director of Commmissioning
Consideration was given to a report of the Cabinet Member for Social Care and Ageing Well / Director of Commissioning seeking approval to tender for payroll, accountancy and brokerage services for the delivery of adults personal budget provisions.
To not enter a joint procurement exercise with Trafford MBC and Trafford CCG and wither continue without a dedicated system or seek to tender for one as an individual organisation.
1. That the Council enter into a Flexible Purchasing System framework in partnership with Trafford Council and Trafford CCG.
2. That the awarding of the contract be delegated to the Director of Commissioning in consultation with Cabinet Member for Social Care and Ageing Well
Reasons for resolution
The requirement for this service will be an ongoing requirement. The Flexible Purchasing System will be commissioned on a ten year basis meaning that there will be internal resource efficiencies as a result of not having to complete regular re-tendering and market testing exercises.
