Shaping the Market for Personalisation
The Adults and Communities directorate is working with service providers so that there will be a range of services to meet people's needs in the future. As part of this, we are introducing a different way of contracting with providers. We will be using a new framework agreement when we commission services from care homes, care homes with nursing and home support services.
The framework agreement sets out what we expect from organisations that provide services to people in Birmingham on our behalf. If your organisation is interested in providing the kind of services that we commission, you will need to 'sign up' to our new approach to adult social care.

Please note there has been a temporary Notice of Suspension of New Providers to Framework
As of the 30 November 2012 the registration for new suppliers to the framework will be suspended until further notice.
We are in the process of reviewing the pre-registration process and the revised process is likely to include submission of related policies and procedures, latest CQC report (if you have been visited) and a minimum of one visit prior to providers being admitted to the Framework.
As soon as the revised pre-registration standards are agreed, these will be published on this page.
If you are a new provider who has not yet been formally approved on the framework then the revised standards will apply to your registration.
New Framework Agreements
Commissioning is introducing new Contractual Arrangements with external providers. The new Adults and Communities Framework Agreement will replace contracting arrangements across all client groups, for care homes with and without nursing (both long and short term provision) and home support provision.

Please help us recruit 'Experts by experience' for the Citizen-led Quality Boards
Over the last two years, Adults & Communities has worked with service users and carers to set up two Citizen-led Quality Boards - one for Assessment & Support Planning and one for Commissioning. Both Boards are now established, but still have vacancies, and we are asking for your help in identifying any member of the public who you think might be interested, and making them aware of the opportunity. Details of the work of the Boards, information for applicants, and an application form, are available on the Council website at http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/cqb
Many of the Directorate's service users and their carers have talents, skills and experience which would enable them to make an important contribution to the Quality Boards' work to improve adult social care in the city. Board membership would also provide them with a stimulating & rewarding experience, and benefit their personal development.
We are asking you to do some talent spotting, and maybe offer encouragement & support if people are uncertain whether to put themselves forward.
