The Help to Live at Home Open Framework has been developed by Hampshire County Council (The Council), in conjunction with The Council's partners (the 5 Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG's), current providers of Homecare services), to help meet the challenges of providing Adults' home-care services over the next 5-7 years. It is an opportunity for providers to work with The Council and CCG's to develop these services in Hampshire moving forward. The Open Framework has been set up to be used for personal care and support services by both the Council and the CCG's. The services under the Open Framework cover the Council's domiciliary care requirements (including the replacement of the Care at Home service), reablement services (currently contracted as REACT), the care element of extra care and the CCG's Continuing Healthcare requirements. This is not a comprehensive list and the Open Framework will be flexible to capture emerging requirements throughout it's lifetime.
The Open Framework is a multiple stage process conducted under the “light touch regime” under Part 2, Chapter 3 Section 7 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (Social and other Specific Services). The first stage for Providers interested in delivering work through this Open Framework is to register with In-Tend and then complete the enrolment questionnaire. The enrolment questionnaire will require providers to submit details relating to their organisation which will be assessed by the Council and successful providers will be admitted onto the Open Framework.
The Open framework will always be open meaning that providers can apply at any time and providers who have previously been unsuccessful may re-apply once they have taken any corrective action. Being accepted onto the Open Framework is no guarantee of work, but will allow providers to view and tender for Call-Off contracts for both The Council and the CCG's. Call-off contracts may be available at any point during the life of the Open Framework and will only be available for those providers on the Open Framework.
