Community Equipment Contract

H&F Council forms part of the London Consortium Agreement with twenty other Local Authorities. The consortium created a framework for London based Social Care and Health Services to buy community equipment. This is a demand led contract from which the latest data intelligence suggests that the average usage is split 40% H&F Social Care and 60% Health.

The framework has reached an end and the consortium has gone through a procurement for a new provider (NRS) to supply community equipment. The recommended decision is to stay with the consortium for another 5+2 years.

H&F wants to enter into a "call-off" agreement from the 1st April 2023 to 31st March 2028 with a potential extension for two years. This means total value of £13,723,150.
