Decision Maker: Cabinet,
Decision status: Item Called In
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Director of Children’s Services made recommendations to Cabinet for approval to procure parenting and preventative services for 2009/11. The proposed services to be commissioned would support the delivery of several Departmental and Corporate priorities and respond to developments in joint working (e.g. use of the Team around the Child Model and development of Area Teams). The commissioning and procurement process resulting in these recommendations had been robust, multi-agency (including voluntary and community sector involvement) and inclusive of parents, children and young people.
(1) the procurement of services in appendix 1 to the report be approved and contract negotiation with the identified services be provided from 03/07/09; and
(2) the extension of the existing contract for Racial Minority Ethnic Contract to 30th September 2009 be approved to allow for the timeline.
