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 CCGs Continuing Healthcare requirements. This is not a comprehensive list and the Open Framework will be flexible to capture emerging requirements throughout its lifetime.
The Open Framework is a multiple stage process conducted under the "light touch regime". The first stage for Providers interested in delivering work through this Open Framework is to register with In-Tend as detailed below. Interested Providers should search for this tender opportunity on In-Tend using the reference AS08860. Providers will be required to complete an enrolment questionnaire and submit details relating to their organisation which will be assessed by the Council. Successful providers will be admitted onto the Open Framework. Throughout its lifespan (which ends August 2022) 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.
In order to view the enrolment documentation and to register with In-Tend and the project (the project reference number is AS08860) please go to the procurement portal: https://in-tendhost.co.uk/hampshire/aspx/
