The current contract was awarded to Medequip as part of the London Community Equipment Consortium framework in April 2017 for a period of 4 years with the option of a 1 + 1 extension to supply community and specialist equipment for Adults and Children. This request is to approve the extension of the existing contract for a period of one year from 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022 and agree delegated responsibility to the Executive Director of Adult Social Care to exercise the option of the second year extension, if the forthcoming procurement process is delayed as a result of Covid-19. The annual spend for WCC is approximately £1.8m which therefore requires a key decision as it is above the £1.5m threshold.
