Why are 2015/16 Framework rates (2015/16 spot rates if not on the Framework) being used for the Shared Hours element of the new Supported Living Contracts?

The nature of Shared Hours is that people are sharing the support provided in the property, unlike other support services involving travel.  It has therefore been agreed with individual providers that this is a reasonable holding position for the interim contracts pending further discussion during the coming months that will inform the new Supported Living Framework tender.

In adopting this position for shared hours the Council has acknowledged that additional individual hours for each legacy client’s support will be priced at the current (i.e. 2016/17) spot contract rate, or a negotiated rate aligned with that of the majority of the market.
