Commissioning of Adult, Children and Family Services

Securing the best outcomes for local communities 

Strategic Commissioning Review Programme How our Process Works

Nottingham City Council's Strategy and Commissioning Directorate will deliver a programme of Strategic Commissioning Reviews for adult, children and family social care services which will be undertaken in accordance with the Commissioning Pathway.

The Reviews aim to ensure that we support Nottingham's citizens to achieve their best. We will accomplish this by exploring (where appropriate) fundamentally different approaches and/or radical changes to existing models, whilst making sure that we keep costs to a minimum. The Reviews will consider the whole picture around citizens, rather than just thinking about the services, so that we make the most effective use of existing resources to meet citizens' needs.

Our current key strategic commissioning reviews are listed below. Follow the links underneath each header for detail of the aim and scope of review and current consultation and activity. 

There are exciting plans in place in the world of technology to help citizens benefit from specialist IT support - and in Nottingham City we are rolling out the Assistive Technology Project for Adult Integrated Care which will bring the telecare system (social care) and telehealth (health services) into one place.

Messages to the Market Transforming Care

Nottingham City Council is currently reviewing the assistance it commissions and provides to help people in the City who are vulnerable to financial difficulty.

On 25 May 2018, we held a workshop to listen to our stakeholders’ views and insights to help us to better understand who in Nottingham is vulnerable to financial difficulty and the issues they face. This session will help to shape how the Council and its partners can work together to help people experiencing or at risk of hardship in the City. A set of slides from the workshop are available to download here.

Stakeholder consultation feedback

We are now in a position to share with you next steps. We anticipate advertising the tender in December 2018 via the Council’s e-tendering portal, Due North. The expected deadline for tenders will be around January 2019 and it is anticipated that the procurement process will involve an element of dialogue with bidders.

 It is likely that we will commission an investor and provider working jointly in partnership as we feel the relationship between the provider and the investor is key to ensuring this project is successful. In Nottingham City we have a commitment and desire to spend monies locally and support local businesses to thrive. In the year 2017-18, a total of £299.7m was injected into the local economy through our procurement – representing 61% of total contract value awarded.

 We will communicate information about this opportunity to the market via the Due North portal and information from the event held in August is available below.
