NorseCare Ltd wishes to procure an open framework with a range of different domiciliary care providers delivering residential and nursing care services to adults on an agency supply basis, across our portfolio of Care Homes and Housing With Care Schemes. The framework will be for 5 years from October 2019, with the option to extend for up to a further 5 years; subject to agreement of NorseCare Ltd with the service providers.
NorseCare Ltd is subject to the Public Contracts Regulations 2015, and will be carrying out this procurement in accordance with the Light Touch Regime which applies to social services. The basis of this framework is for NorseCare to seek support from approved agency providers when extra care is required for tenants or residents as stipulated by Norfolk County Council or family and friends of which NorseCare does not have the current capacity to be able to offer.
The framework seeks to implement an established group of trusted agencies that can provide competent and suitably trained care workers at an agreed hourly rate to the different NorseCare Residential Care Homes and Housing with Care Schemes. The requirement is likely to be for small periods of time on differing days of the week.
