Commissioning of Dementia Navigators Service pdf icon PDF 132 KB

    Surrey County Council currently commissions, on behalf of the County Council and the Surrey NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), a Dementia Navigator service which provides vital support to Surrey residents following a diagnosis of dementia and shows, enables and empowers them how to access and connect to a range of support and services available throughout the lifetime of their condition. 

     

    This report sets out recommendations arising from work on options for the provision of the Dementia Navigators service and outlines the outcome of market engagement and a competitive procurement process which was carried out in order to select a supplier to deliver the service. 

     

    N.B. There is a Part 2 Annex at Item 14.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Adults & Lifelong Learning Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    That the award of contract for the provision of Dementia Navigators to The Alzheimer’s Society be agreed. This would enable a new contract to commence from 1 June 2019 and enable a smooth transition when the current contract ends on 31 May 2019.

     

    2.    That the new contract will be in place for two years with the option to extend up to a further 24 months was noted. The new contract will end on 31 May 2021, however if both extension years were used, the contract will end on 31 May 2023. This service would be delivered county wide and to North East Hants & Farnham.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    The existing Dementia Navigators contract will expire on 31 May 2019. A competitive tender process in compliance with the requirements of Public Contract Regulations and Procurement Standing Orders had been completed. The recommended supplier offered overall best value for money in the procurement process.

     

    The proposal supports the Council’s strategic obligation to deliver the Dementia Strategy commissioning intentions and the award of this contract would enable uninterrupted provision of the service and enable the Council to improve and meet objectives of providing service users with vital assistance following a diagnosis of dementia, showing how to access support & services available. It also reduced the likelihood of carer breakdown and alleviate some of the risks associated with supporting people who were living with dementia at home and in their local community. This contract would also generate benefits for Surrey and North East Hants & Farnham residents, as it would deliver an estimated £17,514 in Social Value.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Adults & Lifelong Learning Select Committee]

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for Adults & Public Health presented a report which described how the Council currently commissioned a Dementia Navigators service from The Alzheimer’s Society which provided vital support to Surrey residents following a diagnosis of dementia. The current contract would end on 31 May 2019.  The report also set out  recommendations arising from work on options for the provision of the Dementia Navigators service and outlined the outcome of market engagement and a competitive procurement process which was carried out in order to select a supplier to deliver the service when the current contract ceases. 

     

    A few Members highlighted the social value aspects contained in the Part 2 report.  It was agreed that this information should have been in the Part 1 report and made public and is attached as annex 4.

     

    The Leader explained that a Surrey wide health plan was soon to be consulted on and that this venture would play a key part in providing outcomes of that plan.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    1. That the award of contract for the provision of Dementia Navigators to The Alzheimer’s Society be agreed. This would enable a new contract to commence from 1 June 2019 and enable a smooth transition when the current contract ends on 31 May 2019.

     

    1. That the new contract will be in place for two years with the option to extend up to a further 24 months was noted. The new contract will end on 31 May 2021, however if both extension years were used, the contract will end on 31 May 2023. This service would be delivered county wide and to North East Hants & Farnham.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    The existing Dementia Navigators contract will expire on 31 May 2019.

Surrey Performing Arts Library- Evaluation of NewSPAL Business Plan pdf icon PDF 270 KB

    On 26 June Cabinet agreed a recommendation that NewSPAL should be invited to prepare a comprehensive business plan to take on the running of SPAL giving it a future independent of the County Council.  NewSPAL has now presented its business plan which has been consulted upon and evaluated.  This report summarises the evaluation and the reasons for the recommendations.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Adults & Lifelong Learning Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    1. That NewSPAL use the current SPAL collection and equipment, to offer a Performing Arts Library service to the public be approved.

     

    1. That authority be delegated to the Director of Education, Lifelong Learning and Culture in consultation with the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning to finalise the phased transfer of the collection and equipment on a conditional basis for a transitional period in anticipation of a final unconditional transfer and gifting of the collection and equipment.

     

    1. That the responsible officer agree a set of performance measures with NewSPAL throughout the transition period in order to evaluate progress and performance and inform the final decision by the Council on the transfer.

     

    1. That approval be given for officers to report on progress to the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning and set a deadline for completion of the lease negotiations between NewSPAL and Woking Borough Council that is appropriate with the transition period.

     

    1. That approval is given to the responsible officer to report annually on progress towards the final transfer to the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning.

     

    1. That Cabinet will review progress in the Summer of 2021 with the final decision on unconditional transfer and gifting of the collection and equipment to be taken by the Cabinet at the end of the transitional period.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    The public consultation on options for the future for the Surrey Performing Arts Library, carried out in 2017, indicated a strong level of public support for an independent future for the service which would provide new opportunities for development and funding streams not currently available.

     

    NewSPAL’s proposals had received expressions of support from potential users.  They had presented a business plan which on evaluation by officers was seen to be capable of delivering an independent future, keeping the collection available to the public and helping preserve part of a national network of performing arts libraries. The viability of the new operating model will be tested during the two-three year transition period before the Cabinet is asked to consider a final transfer.

     

    Officers will agree a set of performance measures and milestones with NewSPAL for the transition period to ensure that options for the future of the collection can be brought back to SCC should NewSPAL meet barriers that they cannot overcome.  The recent public consultation on NewSPALs service offer has indicated a high level of support for NewSPAL taking on the service - with respondents stating they would use the new service as often as they use the current service. This level of support extends to the potential new location of Woking and any other location should Woking not materialise. 

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Adults & Lifelong Learning Select Committee]

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for All-Age Learning presented a report that summarised the NewSPAL business plan evaluation and the reasons for the recommendations.  She stated that Surrey Performing Arts Library (SPAL) was a specialist and non-statutory service. The collection, developed over several decades, played a significant role in supporting the cultural life of the county. As such, the Council must exercise due diligence and have regard to its future well-being.

     

    It had previously been identified that full savings from SPAL and additional benefits could potentially be delivered if the SPAL collection and its operation were transferred to a new charity, NewSPAL.  NewSPAL was developed by interested users and stakeholders (such as Making Music and Friends of SPAL) as a distinct organisation and registered with the Charity Commission in January 2018. The charity has no connection with Surrey County Council. The new form of governance would enable the organisation to develop its own clear identity and attract funding and support that would not be possible if the SPAL remained part of the Council.

     

    Re-worded and amended recommendations were tabled in order to provide more clarity.

     

    Several Members praised NewSPAL for progress and wished them luck in this venture.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    1. That NewSPAL use the current SPAL collection and equipment, to offer a Performing Arts Library service to the public be approved.

     

    1. That authority be delegated to the Director of Education, Lifelong Learning and Culture in consultation with the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning to finalise the phased transfer of the collection and equipment on a conditional basis for a transitional period in anticipation of a final unconditional transfer and gifting of the collection and equipment.

     

    1. That the responsible officer agree a set of performance measures with NewSPAL throughout the transition period in order to evaluate progress and performance and inform the final decision by the Council on the transfer.

     

    1. That approval be given for officers to report on progress to the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning and set a deadline for completion of the lease negotiations between NewSPAL and Woking Borough Council that is appropriate with the transition period.

     

    1. That approval is given to the responsible officer to report annually on progress towards the final transfer to the Cabinet Member for All Age Learning.

Agile workforce Device Procurement pdf icon PDF 103 KB

    The purpose of this report is to seek Cabinet approval to delegate authority to the Executive Director for Customer, Digital and Transformation, in consultation with the relevant Cabinet Member, to award framework call-off contract(s) for the provision of end user computer devices and associated services and to place during the life of the contract(s).

     

    N.B. There is a Part 2 Annex at Item 15.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    That delegated authority be granted to the Executive Director for Customers, Digital and Transformation in consultation with the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Corporate Support to award framework call-off contract(s) for end user computer devices and associated services following the successful delivery of the procurement project.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    To speed up the process of acquisition and deployment of devices by reducing the time taken to conduct a compliant procurement leading to the award of contract and the raising of purchase orders. 

     

    The device selection and procurement processes are underway but will not be completed in time for the February or March Cabinet Meetings. Time will be lost if the approval of contract award(s) has to wait until the April Cabinet meeting with a best case contract start date of the 15 May. With this delegated approval being sought the Surrey contract could commence as early as 10 April 2019. 

     

    The timescale driver is twofold:

     

    There is an opportunity for the Council to join East Sussex County Council (ESCC) and Brighton & Hove City Council (BHCC) in an Orbis-wide device and services procurement. The Council would benefit from advantageous pricing achieved through the economies of scale from a 20,000 device procurement, double the size of a Surrey County Council only procurement; and

     

    There is an urgency to commence deployment of new equipment as part of the Agile Workforce project, a key enabler within the Transformation Programme.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for Corporate Support presented a report which sought approval to delegate authority to award framework call-off contract(s) for the provision of end user computer devices and associated services and to place orders during the life of the contract(s). She explained the Agile Workforce project had been commissioned under the Council’s Transformation Programme to support culture change within services, provision of equipment for smarter working, maximise the use of property portfolio and reduce unproductive time for staff. It was anticipated that a minimum 2:1 person to desk ratio was required for future working structures.

     

    The Cabinet Member for Adults explained how this would be beneficial to various groups of service users.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    That delegated authority be granted to the Executive Director for Customers, Digital and Transformation in consultation with the Leader of the Council and Cabinet Member for Corporate Support to award framework call-off contract(s) for end user computer devices and associated services following the successful delivery of the procurement project.

Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement Renewals pdf icon PDF 114 KB

    Currently Surrey County Council uses Microsoft software licence agreements to provide Council employees with access to software productivity packages. The current Microsoft agreements will expire during May and June 2019 and there is no option to extend these beyond this term, requiring re-procurement of these agreements.

     

    This report sets out recommendations arising from work on options for the provision of Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement Renewals and outlines a competitive procurement process which was carried out in order to select a supplier to deliver the service. 

     

    N.B. There is a Part 2 Annex at Item 16.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Additional documents:

    Decision:

    RESOLVED:

     

    That the award of contract for the provision Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement Renewals to Phoenix Software Limited be approved.

     

    Reasons for Decision:

     

    The three existing Surrey Microsoft agreements expire on 31 May 2019 and 30 June 2019. A competitive mini-competition process in compliance with the requirements of Public Contract Regulations and Procurement Standing Orders had been completed. The recommended supplier offered overall best value for money in the procurement process.

     

    The recommendation to award this contract in February 2019 would enable the Council to remain compliant with their Microsoft licensing requirements. By awarding the contract and committing to the new agreements before 31 March 2019 the Council would avoid the October 2018 price rise and any further price rises prior to the commencement of the new agreements. This action would avoid the October price rise of £79,000 per annum, £237,000 over the three year term of the new agreements.

     

    [The decisions on this item can be called in by the Corporate Overview Select Committee]

     

    Minutes:

    The Cabinet Member for Corporate Support introduced a report that explained the current contract for Microsoft software licence agreements would expire during May and June 2019.  These licenses provided Council employees with access to software productivity packages such as Word, Excel, Email, Calendar and Skype. The licencing also covered IT infrastructure elements used in the delivery of business applications to the organisation. The report set out recommendations arising from work on options for the provision of Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement Renewals and outlined a competitive procurement process which was carried out in order to select a supplier to deliver the service. 

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    That the award of contract for the provision Microsoft Enterprise License Agreement Renewals to Phoenix Software Limited be approved.
