Sunderland City Council: Market Engagement - Adults Independent Advocacy

Sunderland

Market Engagement on Adults Independent Advocacy

Sunderland City Council is engaging with providers to seek their views regarding the delivery of advocacy services to adults within the City of Sunderland.

The Council currently have two contracts in place, one contract that provides Generic advocacy, IMCA, DOL and RPR and a second contract with a separate provider for the IMHA requirements and are seeking views on two proposed contract structures for the services and would like to understand the market view on how they feel the Care Bill may impact on advocacy services in the future.

Providers who respond to the request will be advised of any procurement process to ensure they are fully engaged up to the point where the procurement opportunity is issued.

The end date for the consultation is 30th November 2013 and the market engagement questionnaire is available here.
