Social Care Tenders have undergone radical changes in recent years. The introduction of the Asset Based commissioning approach, the focus on Outcomes based initiatives such as Reablement, and the migration to Direct Payments, Personal Budgets and Individual Service Funds have caused many service providers to change both their professional approach and their business model.
The emerging competition from Third Sector service providers, together with wholesale reductions in Commissioners’ budgets for Social Care Tenders requires bidders to reassess their proposition in qualitative as well as economic terms. This is increasingly relevant as Local Authorities and NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) work ever more closely together to deliver efficiencies in service delivery.
Because Quality remains the most important evaluation criterion for a Social Care Tender, our approach is to focus upon the qualitative aspects of our Clients’ business, ensuring in the first instance that operating systems are fully aligned with the CQC required standards for Service Excellence and Safeguarding for example.
We seek to present our clients as demonstrably the strongest bidder for a given Social Care Tender. In this way, every additional point we can gather at evaluation allows a little more flexibility in terms of pricing and hence margin protection.
It is an approach that is proven by the results our clients have achieved in the Social Care Tenders they have pitched for.
