Independent Assessment Services Tender

Surrey County Council must meet a range of statutory obligations to ensure that safeguarding and care planning decisions about children are made using high quality evidence suitable for the courts. A range of expert assessments are sometimes required to support this process. Approval is sought for the Council to award contracts to providers who have met criteria and that delegated approval be given to the Service Manager (Gateway to Resources) to ‘call off’ this DPS for the purchasing of relevant services. Delegated approval is also sought for the Director of Commissioning to include and award contracts to new providers on the DPS, as required.
