The adoption service is currently in the process of becoming regionalised, meaning there is no certainty with regards to the current services and contracts in place.
The decision to extend the contract was made following the completion of an options appraisal and the outcome that extending was the best option at present for Devon County Council.
An options appraisal was carried out with the following options considered:
o Devon County Council to re-tender the contract
o Direct award to an alternative supplier
o Allow the contract to expire and do not put another in place
o Extend the current contract
No conflicts of interest in relation to the extension of this contract.
