This paper makes recommendations for a direct
award for the provision of Edward Wood Community Champions projects
1. That the Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care, in consultation with the Strategic Director of Social Care, grant a waiver under Contract Standing Orders 3.1 in relation to the competition requirement (for obtaining 3 written quotation) set out in CSO 10.2 to allow a direct award of a contract for the provision of Edward Woods Community Champions project to Urban Partnership Group for a period of two years on the grounds that this is in the overall interests.
2. That the Cabinet Member for Health and Adult Social Care award a contract for the provision of Edward Woods Community Champions project to Urban Partnership Group for a period of two years (1st April 2019 to 31st March 2021). The contract value is £45,000 per annum, a total of £90,000.
The recommendation for the duration of the direct award to be two years is to provide stability and maintain the success of the Community Champions projects post commissioner, provider and management changes. A common renewal date in 2021 would also enable a more holistic view to be taken of the Hammersmith and Fulham Community Champions programme.
Three options have been considered and are detailed in Table 2 of the report.
