Stage 2: Accreditation Scheme

Stage 1: Dynamic Purchasing Vehicle (DPV)

The DPV is a procurement tool established by CA and is accessible to all participating Local Authorities to purchase semi-independent support for their young adults.

When you sign up for our Diamond package, the first stage is to work with you to become an approved DPV provider and are given access to the platform where you can start accepting packages.

The DPV offers four service levels:

  1. Floating Support
  2. Accommodation with Support

Stage 2: Accreditation Scheme

The Accreditation Scheme is the advanced process providers must undergo to prove their organization's competence to the commissioning authority.

  • Evaluation of the owners/people running the service
  • Assessment of the organization, including policies, procedures, and operational methods
  • Property Inspection

To become accredited, your organization must successfully pass stage 2.
Upon successful completion, your organization will be granted access to an additional e-brokerage platform where you can accept packages.
Accreditation is an annual requirement, and the quality benchmark for achieving Accredited status may increase over time. All organizations will be given ample warning and details regarding any changes to the accreditation.
