MPS: Supporting Independence
MPS: Supporting independence
Market opportunities summary
The Supporting Independence contract runs until the 30 September 2021.
The final entry point will open in March 2020 and close in May 2020 with new contracts being awarded before the commencement date of the 1 October 2020.
The opportunity to pick up unregulated packages of care will be greater for providers on the framework as all new business will be offered to framework providers in the first instance.
Future commissioning approach
During 2019 and 2020, plans will be developed for how we recommission the current framework after September 2021. Any future arrangement is likely to retain and enhance the quality requirements of the contract, and will consider the question of how we can carry through those providers who are already on the framework to any future arrangements.
Indicatively, our timeline is:
|Engagement with providers and stakeholder||Winter 2019 and throughout 2020|
|Development of proposals||Autumn 2020|
|Specification agreed||Spring 2021|
|Tender, evaluation and contract award||Spring/Summer 2021|
|Recommissioning Commencement||September/October 2021|
