We would like to enquire if you currently have a preferred supplier list or Master Vendor contract in place for the provision of
supervised or supported contacts for children in care?
If so please can you advise when does the contract come up for renewal? And what is the process for announcing/advertising and applying?
Do you have an in house service for supervised contact and if so do you spot purchase? Would the in-house service ever be put out to tender?
What is the average hourly rate paid for supervised contact from these agencies?
What is the councils annual spend on outsourced agencies for supervised contact for 2010/2011 and 2011/2012?
What is the name of the procurement and placement officer responsible for this service?
