Decision Maker: Leader of the Council
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: Yes
Is subject to call in?: Yes
To extend current contract to deliver VAWG services for one year to 31st March 2020.
Reasons for Urgency:
Reasons Decision to extend drafted on the basis of decision delegated to relevant Cabinet Member, as was the provision when the original Cabinet Decision was made in 2015. This provision is no longer applicable. The current contract is expiring and a LUD is required as soon as possible in order to extend the current arrangements.
It is recommended that the Leader:
1. Approves the extension of the contract period in respect of the contract with Standing Together Against Domestic Violence for the provision of the Coordination Service, for a duration of one (1) year, for a total sum of £50,000;
2. Approves the extension of the contract period in respect of the contact with Angelou Partnership for the provision of Integrated Support Services for a duration of one (1) year, at a total value of £233,319.
The recommended extension will enable the council to commission an independent review of the current service which will help to develop a business case for a future service model designed around the needs of LBHF service users.
As described in the report.
