To receive a report from the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health and the Corporate Director of Social Care, Health and Wellbeing and to consider and endorse or make recommendations to the Cabinet Member on the proposed award of contract.
Ms C Maynard, Procurement Category Manager, was in attendance for this item, with Ms Holden.
1. The Chairman asked Members of the Committee if, in debate, they wished to refer to the content of the exempt appendix which was included in the agenda pack as item E1. Members confirmed that they did not wish to do so and the item was therefore considered without going into closed session.
2. Ms Holden introduced the report and, in response to a question about the breakdown of scores, explained that 50% of the score was for the price tendered, 30% was for quality and capability and the remaining 20% for a provider’s performance against the agreed key performance indicators introduced as part of the contract.
3. RESOLVED that:-
a) the decision proposed to be taken by the Cabinet Member for Adult Social Care and Public Health, to agree that the Kent County Council enter into contracts with the suitable residential care and nursing care homes identified through the tender exercise, be endorsed; and
b) authority be delegated to the Corporate Director of Social Care, Health and Wellbeing, or other suitable officer, to undertake the actions to implement this decision.
