  1. Approved the award of a contract for the Provision of Support Services for People with Complex, Multiple Needs, to Provider A (as identified in Section 5 of the attached Confidential Appendix A – Tender Evaluation Report), from 1 April 2019 for a period of 5 years with an option for the authority to extend the contract for a further two periods of up to 12 months (subject to the parties agreeing the price for the extension period).




  1. Agreed the case for applying the exempt information provision as set out in the Local Government Act 1972, Schedule 12A and therefore to treat the attached Appendix A in confidence, as they contain commercially sensitive information, and as the case for the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighs the public interest in disclosing that information.


  1. Delegated authority to the Director of Adult Social Services, in consultation with the County Solicitor, to finalise and enter into the contract referred to in recommendation 1 above on behalf of the authority and to determine, in due course, whether to exercise the option to extend the contract.
