Support for key suppliers and grant-supported providers during COVID-19

Our Key Supplier Support Guidance sets out how we will deal with requests for support under contract arrangements from key suppliers and grant-supported providers in response to the COVID-19 emergency and who are at risk because the payment mechanism in the contract no longer reflects the true cost to the supplier/provider.

It has been developed with Angus Health and Social Care Partnership and reflects national policy and guidance.


Types of support

Any type of support can be requested which can be achieved by varying the contract. Two examples of the types of support which might commonly be sought are:

1. Reduced planned demand

Fixed contract payments would be based on the actual volume of usage for the week, month or other period. There are no deductions for fluctuation in demand or use.

2. Extraordinary costs

These would compensate suppliers for extraordinary cost increases caused by the emergency which are not reflected in the payment mechanism.


How to apply

Read the guidance notes below and complete an application form.

Once we receive your application our internal panel will assess it and aim to contact you within 14 days.

We may need to contact you with questions about your application before we make a decision.

If your application is approved we will send you a Contract Variation letter which must be signed before we can pay/implement the approved support..

If your application is refused we will write to inform you.

In return for support, as well as normal/standard contract terms for the services/supplies concerned, businesses must agree reciprocal terms including:

  • working with us in good faith
  • not to apply for funding under both this policy and government business support (see section 4.7 of the guidance below for the full list).

Angus Coronavirus Key Supplier Support – A Guide to Our Local Arrangements

1. Introduction

1.1 In this guidance, “Angus Council”, “we”, “our” or “the Council” includes Angus Health and Social Care Partnership in terms of delivery of adult care services.

1.2 This guidance constitutes our local arrangements. These are wholly aligned to and mean we are following and implementing national policy and guidance.

The primary sources of that guidance for this purpose are:

  • Scottish Government procurement guidance SPPN 05/2020 Coronavirus (COVID-19): supplier relief
  • “National principles for sustainability payments to social care providers during COVID 19” issued jointly by COSLA and the Chief Finance Officers of Health & Social Care Scotland with the endorsement of Scottish Government; different versions apply according to when the support request was made:
    • Version 3 to end August 2020
    • Version 4 from September 2020 to end November 2020
    • New version from December 2020 to end March 2021
    • All versions are available on the COSLA website

1.3 Our guide is therefore intended to explain our approach to implementation of national policy and guidance and to highlight specific key points from the national guidance for suppliers to be aware of for their assistance. Suppliers should review the national policy and guidance for themselves rather than rely solely on this local guidance.

1.4 Our objective is to support our commissioned and contracted services and our local economy in response to the Coronavirus / Covid-19 emergency and maintain our supply chains through the emergency for continuity of supply in the provision of essential services once the emergency is passed. We consider this to be vital to support the wellbeing of Angus and its citizens.

1.5 Where we refer in this guidance to “contracted suppliers”, this includes all those whom the council will be paying directly under this guidance and all manner of service providers whether they are commercial bodies or not. In the context of adult care services, this specifically includes “option 2” care providers (within the meaning of the Social Care (Self-directed Support) (Scotland) Act 2013) where services are being arranged and paid for by the Council on an emergency response basis under this guidance.

2. Scope

2.1 For the avoidance of any doubt, the decision to provide support to contracted suppliers or not under this guidance is discretionary on the part of the council. Support offered will be based on the national policy and guidance.

2.2 This guidance will apply on application to the Council by contracted suppliers. In line with national policy, applications will be dealt with on a case by case basis but we may choose to deal with groups of contracts on a collective basis where the effects and risks are comparable.

2.3 The support offered will primarily apply to essential services contracted for by Angus Council. “Essential services” have been determined by the Council as:

  • Adult care services
  • Children’s services
  • Early learning and childcare services
  • Criminal justice services
  • Education services
  • Public and school transport services
  • Construction and related services

Within those categories of essential services, the Council may identify what groups of contracts should be within or outwith this guidance on a group basis and in terms of what groups need support in the public interest.

Nationally managed contracts within those essential service areas (e.g. the National Care Homes Contract) are outwith the scope of this guidance insofar as the contract rates are set nationally.

3. Duration and Review

3.1 In line with national policy, this guidance lasted initially until 30 June 2020 and has continued now until 31 March 2021.

3.2 Subject to national policy, support under this guidance may terminate at any time after 30 June 2020 on not less than 14 days’ notice by the Council to contracted suppliers (provided of course the Council receives timely notice from Scottish Government to enable the period of notice to be given). The Council will however endeavour to give longer notice of termination of support under this guidance (on a general or supplier-specific basis) where it is feasible to do so.

3.3 The Council will review operation of this guidance on a monthly and ongoing basis. The Council reserves the right to make changes to it without notice.

4. The Support Offered

4.1 In line with national policy and in return for support under this guidance, the contracted supplier will be required to enter into a variation of its contract with the Council to give effect to reciprocal expectations of the contracted supplier. The full model agreement terms were issued by the Scottish Government in SPPN5 referred to above and accompany this guidance.  Contracted suppliers should make sure that they are content with those terms before seeking support from the Council. The key points are:

  • It will be for a supplier to set out proposals to vary an existing contract and/or request interim / advance payment.
  • Both parties will be required to explore if other changes to the contract (for example, rescheduled delivery dates) would work better.
  • The supplier will not be entitled to combine a claim under the contract with any other COVID-19 related relief, grant, intervention or other measure which results in the supplier receiving more than one benefit/relief for the same underlying cash-flow issue.
  • On request, the supplier will have to evidence that any monies paid out have been used as intended.
  • A condition of payment will be that the supplier must also promptly pay its staff and supply chain under the contract.
  • Suppliers will not be able to claim where there is no contractual volume commitment to deliver nor will not be able to claim for profit on undelivered elements of the contract.
  • Monies paid can be recovered by public bodies in specified circumstances.

4.2 Contracted suppliers may seek whatever support they consider they require from the Council and which the Council is able to give within the terms of the contract and the national policy and guidance. 3 examples are offered below of the kind of support which the Council expects could be requested and we may be able to offer. These are not mutually exclusive.

4.3 Example 1 – Reduced Planned Demand

Where the payment mechanism for the contracted service is wholly or partly based upon the volume of service or supply, the Council will move to fixed contract payments based on the actual volume of usage prior to 28 February 2020 and will make no deductions for fluctuation in demand / use for the duration of the support offered under this guidance.

Our normal approach will be that the volume on which the fixed payment is based will be that for the week, month or other period as the case may be (depending on the reference period in the payment mechanism) ending 28 February 2020, unless it is accepted by the Council that another reference period would be appropriate.

In line with the “National principles for sustainability payments to social care providers during COVID 19” guidance referred to above, for care homes:-

  • For care homes where the National Care Homes Contract (NCHC) is in place, payment for reduced occupancy below planned levels (“voids”) will be made on the basis of 80% of the NCHC rate excluding any provision for return for the provider or costs that can be reduced. The weekly payments are Residential Care - £508.63 per week and Nursing - £592 per week.
  • These principles apply to voids caused by COVID 19 for places commissioned by the Local Authority or people funding their own care. No increased rate will be paid where a care home does not accept the NCHC rate or to account for care homes who charge higher self-funding fees.
  • For other care home placements such as care homes for adults where the national arrangement is not in place a local agreement will be made using the same principles.
  • Occupancy will be calculated locally by using data submitted by providers to commissioners of average occupancy of the three-month period prior to 23rd March 2020.
  • In line with the 4th version of that guidance as modified by Scottish Government / COSLA letter dated 6 November 2020, care home reduced occupancy payments (at 80% of the National Care Home Rate) were reduced to:
    • 75% of that rate for voids caused by the continued impact of COVID in September
    • 50% of that rate for voids caused by the continued impact of COVID in October and November.
  • In line with the new version of that guidance issued in December, care home reduced occupancy payments were restored to 100% of the 80% National Care Home Rate for voids caused by the continued impact of COVID in December through to March.

In line with the “National principles for sustainability payments to social care providers during COVID 19” guidance referred to above, for planned care (i.e. “care at home”, day care and similar services):-

  • Planned care for services unable to remobilise or redeploy would be supported at local contractual rates under deduction of reduced costs and stripping out profit / surplus elements in line with SPPN 5/2020 up until the end of November.
  • From December:
    • Day care and respite services unable to operate because of the COVID-19 pandemic will be supported at 80% of the normal rate benchmarked to the pre-Covid average level of service provided between January 2020 and 23 March 2020.
    • Care at home services unable to operate because of the COVID-19 pandemic will be supported at 90% (recognising the more limited cost reduction for these kinds of service) of the normal rate benchmarked to the pre-Covid average level of service provided between January 2020 and 23 March 2020.

4.4 Example 2 - Extraordinary Costs

Where the payment mechanism for the contracted service is affected by extraordinary cost increases because of the emergency.

Here are some examples:

  • the payment mechanism hourly rate contains a set allowance for sickness absence in providing for staff costs which is rendered significantly inaccurate due to increased sickness absence because of Coronavirus illnesses
  • input costs on items such as personal protective clothing and equipment have increased beyond reasonably expected levels due to the emergency
  • contracted suppliers incur extra management time to make rapid adjustments to care packages due to e.g. emergency hospital admissions, care visits changed to meet the most urgent needs, homecare visits taking longer due to infection control precautions and the availability of staff.
  • Construction contracts payment mechanism continues to pay actual preliminary costs incurred during a period of contract suspension
  • Contract retentions are reduced or alternative retention mechanisms are provided.

Where those extraordinary cost increases apply, the Council will review allowances for such costs within those payment mechanisms and adjust them accordingly.

4.5 Adjustments will also take into account any extraordinary cost decreases and, in accordance with national policy and guidance, the Council may adjust any payments made to contracted suppliers to ensure that profit margin is not paid on any undelivered aspects of the contract.

Although this will be considered on a case by case basis we may apply set allowances across contract groups within essential services.

4.6 Example 3 - Social Care Staff Support Fund

This statutory scheme and the fund under it has been set up for social care workers who, as a group and due to the nature of their work or work environment, may be expected to self-isolate on more than one occasion as part of infection prevention and control. Its purpose is to ensure that social care workers do not experience financial hardship from doing so.

  • If an employer has paid out a sum of money to top up the income of an eligible worker to their expected income, that employer is entitled to seek reimbursement of that amount from the Fund. 
  • In order to make a claim, an employer must verify that the 4 scheme criteria have been met.
  • The claim is made to the Council / Partnership that commissions the employer’s service.
  • Guidance on the fund at gov.scot
  • An online form has been provided to support this guidance where employers can claim under the fund and certify satisfaction of the scheme criteria.

The legal powers for the Social Care Staff Support Fund have been extended until the end of March 2021, and the Fund will continue until this date.

4.7 In line with national policy and guidance, the Council reserves the right to undertake retrospective reconciliation of support in the form of fixed payments addressing reduced planned demand after conclusion of the support and return to an actual demand basis. Retrospective reconciliation will apply to the support provided under this guidance and not to baseline contract payments.

4.8 In line with national policy and guidance there will be no double-funding of increased costs or revenue protection under both this guidance and by central government’s Coronavirus business support schemes. For ease of reference (and in summary only), the main relevant central government schemes are / have been as follows:

UK Level Support

  • the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (80% of wages paid for furloughed workers)
  • Support for self-employed workers through the Coronavirus (COVID-19) Self-Employment Income Support Scheme
  • Statutory Sick Pay – The Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme will repay employers the Statutory Sick Pay paid to current or former employees
  • Tax payment deferrals / flexibility – Deferral of VAT payments due to coronavirus (COVID-19) and Deferral of Self-Assessment payments due to coronavirus (COVID-19)
  • Access to the Coronavirus Business Interruption Loan Scheme, Coronavirus Future Fund or Coronavirus Bounce Back Loan (for SMEs)
  • Access to the Coronavirus Large Business Interruption Loan Scheme or COVID-19 Corporate Financing Facility for larger businesses

Also in accordance with government guidance, contracted suppliers are required to access available Government schemes where they are eligible to do so as the primary support route albeit it is recognised that there may be a time lag in accessing that support to address cash flow.

Specifically, if the contracted supplier receives central government financial support under the UK Government coronavirus job retention scheme it must declare this immediately to the Council. Support from the Council may be terminated in those circumstances and action taken to reclaim any double-funding.

Alternatively, the Council and the contracted supplier may agree an adjustment to contract payments under this guidance to reflect the effect of central government financial support received.

5. Prompt Payment

5.1 The Council has established systems that will ensure that invoices are paid promptly.  This is to support the cash flow and viability of all our contracted suppliers and not just those supplying essential services.

5.2 From Sunday 22 March 2020, we have altered our payment processes to ensure that all of our contracted suppliers are paid at the first opportunity. This means invoices will be paid as soon as they are authorised, irrespective of what is stipulated on existing individual payment terms and conditions.

Information on our current business support measures is published here: https://www.angus.gov.uk/business/coronavirus_outbreak_business_updates

31 December 2020

We have developed supplementary guidance to help suppliers support their applications with the information we need specific to that contract group.

Guidance has been developed by Angus Council and Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) on how we will deal with requests for support from providers as a result of COVID-19.  This reflects national policy and guidance and you should review this rather than rely solely on local arrangements.   Further information relating to National Guidance and Policy can be found at Appendix 1.

This document is aimed at providing further information to assist you in determining whether or not you should be making a claim for assistance and to let you know what supporting information we require to help evaluate your application.

Further business support advice can be found at Coronavirus outbreak: business updates

What support can I claim for?

We have identified 3 areas which may have impacted your service as a result of COVID-19:

  • Reduced demand eg due to service users’ suspending/cancelling their services;
  • Sickness related costs eg increased costs due to having to pay staff from day one rather than day 4;
  • Increased personal protective equipment costs eg due to increased costs, having to purchase items of PPE which you did not have to previously, increased quantities;

There may be other areas where you have been affected – please include these within your application.

What information do I need to provide?

To enable us to evaluate your application as quickly as possible, it is important that you provide us with supporting information and documentation.  To support this, we have created an Excel Workbook for you to record your supporting information.

If you are applying for Reduced Demand, please let us know the following:

  • What hours of support were you providing in January and February 2020?
  • What was your income during these months?
  • How has your hours / income been affected from March 2020?  Please give us this information on a month by month basis up to the date of your application

If you are applying for Sickness Related Costs, please let us know the following:

  • Average sickness level in 2019
  • Sickness level from March 2020 onward (this information to be detailed by month)

There may be some costs which are associated with both Sickness Related and Reduced Demand.  Please note that where reduced demand is due to lack of staff costs can only be applied once ie Sickness Related Costs or Reduced Demand

If you are applying for additional PPE Costs, please let us know the following:

  • Details of PPE costs prior to 28 February 2020;
  • Copies of invoices for the PPE costs detailed in the application;
  • Details of the items of PPE which have been purchased;
  • Ongoing costs – information on what these costs are, if known.

How long does the evaluation process take?

The Evaluation Panel meet weekly.  We will aim to notify you of the outcome of your application within 14 days.  However, if we need to seek clarification the 14 day timescale will recommence from the date the clarification has been provided by you.

How do I receive my payment?

Payments will be made on receipt of invoice(s).  If your application has been successful you will be advised of which office to send the invoice(s).

Can I apply again?

Yes.  For example, you may not know what your ongoing costs will be for PPE.  Once you know this you can re-apply.

Can I apply for support if I am receiving funding from another source eg the Government?

This will depend on what you have claimed for.  For example, if you are receiving furlough payments for staff we will not cover the full cost.  However, if you are paying a top-up of 20% we may cover this element.

I have service users who have suspended/cancelled hours – do I still continue to invoice for these hours?

No.  Where service users’ have suspended/cancelled hours and you have been unable to allocate these hours elsewhere you must apply for this funding through this scheme.

If you have submitted an invoice for these hours you must provide that office with a credit note.

Please note that if you have suspended/cancelled hours and no alternative support has been offered we may calculate your costs on a reduced rate.

Appendix 1

We have developed supplementary guidance to help providers support their applications with the information we need specific to that contract group.

Guidance has been developed by Angus Council and Angus Health and Social Care Partnership (AHSCP) on how we will deal with requests for support from providers as a result of COVID-19.  This reflects national policy and guidance and you should review this rather than rely solely on local arrangements.  Further information relating to National Guidance and Policy can be found at Appendix 1.

This document is aimed at providing further information to assist you in determining whether or not you should be making a claim for assistance and to let you know what supporting information we require to help evaluate your application.

Further business support advice can be found at Coronavirus outbreak: business updates.

What support can I claim for?

We have identified the following areas which may have impacted your service as a result of COVID-19:

Under-occupancy

We will consider claims where a care home is impacted by a reduction in occupancy because it is clinically unsafe to admit people or due to a reduction in referrals caused by COVID-19.  Claims are considered on the basis that the care home has continued to admit residents where they are able to do so. 

Payment for under-occupancy where the National Care Home Contract (NCHC) is in place will be made on the basis of 80% of the NCHC rate.  The weekly payments are:

  • Residential - £508.63
  • Nursing - £592.00

We will not pay an increased rate where a care home does not accept the NCHC rate or to account for care homes who charge higher self-funding rates.

This is in line with principles approved nationally by COSLA and Scottish Government.

PPE

We will consider claims for PPE relating to increased costs, having to purchase items of PPE which you did not have to previously, increased quantities etc.  We have identified the following types of PPE:

  • Gloves
  • Face masks
  • Face shields
  • Visors
  • Aprons
  • Hand sanitiser (including wipes)
  • Thermometers

You may have incurred costs for additional pieces of PPE.  These can be claimed under the “Other” row of the Excel PPE Worksheet and by attaching evidence supporting the amount and the fact of payment (e.g. copy invoices). 

The period of your claim for PPE should not pre-date 28 February 2020 unless exceptional reasons are given.

Cleaning Costs

We will consider claims for additional cleaning costs. The period of your claim for cleaning costs should not pre-date 28 February 2020 unless exceptional reasons are given.

Please include this in the “PPE” costs Worksheet where indicated.

Additional Staffing Costs

We will consider claims for additional staffing costs for use of agency, sickness related costs e.g. increased costs for having to pay staff from day one rather than day four or enhanced sick pay, additional time for carrying out testing and additional management support / overtime, all if incurred for COVID-19 related reasons.

The period of your claim for additional staffing costs should not pre-date 28 February 2020 unless exceptional reasons are given.

What can’t I claim for?

We will not accept claims for audio-visual equipment, such as televisions.  However, we may consider claims for IT equipment, such as tablets where it is shown that this equipment was necessary to support residents’ care needs (e.g. reducing isolation) and no other alternatives were reasonably available. We may also support claims for IT equipment for staff where this was necessary to manage service delivery in care homes and sharing of equipment was completely precluded for COVID-19 related reasons.

We will not accept claims for topping up the Government’s furlough scheme.

We will not accept claims for quality award payments.

What information do I need to provide?

To enable us to evaluate your application as quickly as possible, it is important that you provide us with supporting information and documentation.  To support this, we have created an Excel Workbook for you to record your supporting information.

Under-occupancy

Average occupancy levels / vacancies will be calculated using data submitted by care home providers for the period 23 December 2019 to 22 March 2020.  When you have entered your average occupancy for each of the periods indicated below, the spreadsheet will automatically calculate the overall average occupancy and vacancy levels. 

Example: -

BASELINE OCCUPANCY

Please enter your average occupancy levels and vacancies for the dates listed: -

In addition to baseline occupancy levels, you will need to send in weekly occupancy to date – see example below.

WEEKLY OCCUPANCY TO DATE

Please enter your actual occupancy levels on the dates listed. Extend the sheet by adding rows (drag and fill will automatically extend the dates) for any later periods of claim: -

To determine the level of sustainability payment, the average baseline occupancy level less the actual occupancy will be used to calculate the under occupancy.

The calculated under occupancy will be rounded to a whole number and payment will be based on one full week and calculated using the weekly rates set out above.

Going forward, further claims during the currency of the scheme can be made retrospectively on a 4-weekly basis by completing an occupancy template and including this with an invoice.

All invoices must specifically identify that they are for COVID-19 sustainability support and the period concerned.

PPE

If applying for additional PPE costs you will be asked to provide the following information using the Excel Workbook:

  • Average consumption of PPE by type for the 3-month period prior to 28 February 2020
  • Actual consumption of PPE for the period of the claim
  • Unit costs of the PPE item.  If costs have fluctuated over the period of the claim, you can provide an average.

In addition, you will have to provide a copy of the invoices covering the period of the claim.

To ease administration and speed of processing claims, please also list the invoices provided with reference to each PPE type; see this example:

How long does the evaluation process take?

The Evaluation Panel meets weekly.  We will aim to notify you of the outcome of your application within 14 days.  However, if we need to seek clarification, the 14-day timescale will recommence from the date the clarification has been provided by you.

How do I receive my payment?

Payment will be made on receipt of invoice(s). If your application has been successful you will be advised on the information your invoice should contain and which office to send the invoices to.

Can I apply again?

Yes. For example, you may not know what your ongoing costs will be for PPE. Once you know this you can re-apply using the Excel workbook.

Can I apply for support if I am receiving funding from another source e.g. the Government?
