   1. Background (An outline summary of the project explaining its origins and context)

   The Norfolk drug and alcohol treatment systems development has been overseen and coordinated by the Norfolk Drug and
   Alcohol Partnership for nearly ten years. This partnership approach to drug and alcohol service development and delivery (and the
   related increased budgetary grants) has enabled and supported the treatment systems growth and reconfiguration during this
   period. This has been taken forward via an increasingly joined up and robust approach to commissioning across the partnership.

   These developments however have predominately consisted of part system redesign, extensions or adjustments to existing
   service delivery and along with local needs assessment evidence, has to a certain extent been driven by national directives and
   policy developments.

   N-DAP in accordance with Norfolk County Council procurement processes are required to go through a full procurement process
   of all current contracts held by the Drug and Alcohol Action Team on behalf of the partnership, with new contracts commencing
   from October 2012. This requirement and the fact that the majority of the contracts and services delivered within the wider adult
   drug and alcohol treatment system are jointly funded by N-DAP partner agencies, presents the partnership with the opportunity to
   recommission the system in Norfolk using a whole needs led and outcomes focused approach.

   This initial project plan outlines the proposed scope, partnership approach and governance to take forward this recommissioning
   activity.

   2. Project Definition

  Project Scope              Recommissioning of all county drug and/or alcohol funded services that form part of the current county
                             adult substance misuse treatment system.
  Project Objectives         1. To join up the current drug and alcohol adult treatment system commissioning activity
                             2. To re design and commission the treatment system with the aim of meeting the identified needs of the
                                local population.
                             3. To ensure the project effectively engages and involves the following groups (as appropriate)
                                    a. N-DAP partners
                                    b. Relevant commissioning boards
                                    c. Service Users
                                    d. Drug and Alcohol Treatment Providers
                                    e. Family and Friends
                                    f. The wider Norfolk community

  Method of Approach         The project will be implemented using a phased project management approach as outlined in appendix A
                             (Project Action Plan). It will be coordinated predominately by the Drug and Alcohol Action Team via the
                             proposed governance framework and accountability structure (see Appendix B).

  Project Deliverables       New adult drug and alcohol treatment system in place that contributes towards the improved performance
  and/or Desired             of the following N-DAP partnership outcomes:
  Outcomes                        1. A reduction in drug related ill health
                                  2. A reduction in drug related deaths
                                  3. A reduction in drug related offending
                                  4. A reduction in alcohol related harm
                                  5. Preventing today’s young people from becoming tomorrow’s problematic substance misusers.
                             Please note N-DAP are awaiting the new governments drug strategy, which is due in December 2010 are
                             also currently considering their future strategic framework. Both of these may result in changes to the
                             partnerships outcomes.

                             A joined approach to the commissioning of drug and alcohol treatment services for adults in Norfolk.
Anne-Louise Schofield                                       Page 2                                               draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
                              A value for money recovery focused adult drug and alcohol treatment system that meets the identified
                              needs of clients, their family and friends and contribute to wider the Norfolk community.
     Constraints               The final scope of the commissioning activity will be limited and constrained only by the agreements that
                              are made between the various commissioning bodies that will be contributing funding to this project.
     Interfaces               Drug and alcohol misuse does not occur in isolation. It is effected by and contributes to a wide range of
                              societal factors including crime and disorder, educational attainment, employment, training and learning,
                              families and parenting (including safeguarding) and individual health and well being.

                              In order to offer the best possible services to their clients and their family and friends, the services that
                              make up the adult drug and alcohol treatment system in Norfolk coordinate packages of care in
                              partnership with a wide range of organisations and services. Ensuring that the commissioning of the new
                              drug and alcohol treatment system fully reflects these interdependent factors, robust delivery and
                              partnership relationships are key to ensuring its success.

                              This will require high level partnership involvement and engagement at each phase of the projects lifespan
                              and a clear and robust governance and accountability structure. Because of the impact of drug and
                              alcohol misuse on the wider population a full public consultation exercise will be needed and particular
                              consideration needs to be given to ensuring that service users and their family and friends are effectively
                              consulted with and involved appropriately at each stage of developments.

                        In order to help support this very important element of the project five engagement and development
                        groups will be established during phase two. The role and function of these groups is further outlined in
                        Appendices C, D and E.

3.       Assumptions:

The outlined project objectives and outcomes are based on the assumed sign up to these by N-DAP commissioning partner agencies.
It is reliant on these commissioning partners to negotiate and agree on the existing contracted services that will be included within this
commissioning activity and to put in place the appropriate legal and contractual framework that is needed to enable its delivery.




Anne-Louise Schofield                                         Page 3                                                  draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
4.     Business case:

As outlined within the introduction there is already a requirement on N-DAP to put current contracted spend through a full
procurement process and that this alongside the related commissioning and interdependencies of all the associated budgets across
the wider partnership provides the opportunity to take forward a whole systems review, redesign and commissioning process. But the
full business case for this proposal does not and should not only relate to these outlined requirements.

The current adult drug and alcohol treatment system in Norfolk has predominately developed based on the extension and part
redesign of historical pre-existing treatment services that aim to meet the needs of the treatment population and changing national
policy developments. This approach has worked for a number of years and although it is easier to sustain during times of growth and
process driven target environments it does have its disadvantages.

It means for example that the current treatment system is in some parts complex to deliver, commission/performance manage and
potentially to be a recipient of. This approach also means that further developing the system, supporting flexibility in delivery and
adapting provision to meet the changing needs of the treatment population and their families is also complex and requires heavy
capacity resource to take forward.

It is very difficult within the current system to ensure that services are delivering value for money and are always meeting the identified
needs of clients. This means that the risks of potential service duplication, gaps or poor agency performance are heightened.

Although we do not know the full details of the requirements from central government regarding the substance misuse sector we do
know that we will need to be delivering more with greater expectations in relation to producing evidenced positive outcomes for our
treatment systems clients within an ever tighter budgetary environment. We also know that the partnership needs to be able to
respond to the changing political steer, including the increased emphasis on recovery and reintegration and that this will mean quite a
fundamental shift in delivery expectations and requirements.

It is felt that the current treatment system cannot be sustained a number of areas are experiencing capacity issues and the balance of
drug and alcohol treatment needs considerable attention.

Through bringing together the wider partnership and the main commissioning partners within one whole systems commissioning
approach it is felt that added gains can be identified in terms of increasing value for money, ensuring the treatment system can adapt
and meets political policy developments, but most importantly delivers high quality outcome focused treatment and care based on the
identified needs of substance misusers and their families within Norfolk.

Anne-Louise Schofield                                          Page 4                                                 draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
5.     Project Organisation:

The Drug and Alcohol Action Team as the strategic delivery and commissioning resource of N-DAP will coordinate the projects
development and delivery. This will need to be supported by and will require capacity input from all N-DAP partners and particularly
from the following agencies:
    Norfolk County Council Community Services
    NHS Norfolk
    NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney

A proposed governance structure (along with draft terms of reference for the key groups) for both the project organisation and delivery
are outlined in appendices B, C, D and E.

6.     Communications Plan:

A full communications plan will be needed for the project and the development of this has been included for action as part of the full
project plan development in phase 1.

7.     Project Plan: - see appendix A

8.     Project Controls: - see accountability and reporting as outlined within Appendix B

9.     Initial Risk Log

It is recommended that the wider N-DAP risk log is adapted to ensure that identified risks relating to this project that are over and
above exiting partnerships risks are incorporated and monitored via the proposed project governance processes.

10      Risk Implications

10.1    This report highlights a number of key risks with regard to:




Anne-Louise Schofield                                         Page 5                                                  draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
                 Failure to ensure that funding amounts and integrated commissioning arrangements are agreed and set within a
                  robust legal framework
               Demands on DAAT and other key staff capacity to coordinate the projects delivery.
               Failure to ensure that the project has access to the appropriate expertise, skills and legal knowledge base to ensure
                  that it is implemented in line with procurement guidance and law.
               Failure to plan for potential budget cuts and/or restrictions.
               Failure of the project to be able to adapt to local and/or national developments
               Failure to effectively engage and involve with all stakeholders
               Failure to ensure that the project phases and objectives are delivered in time for new service commencement in
                  October 2012.
10.2   Failure to address these risks could lead to:

                The potential for a partial system recommissioning exercise. This in turn would limit the added gains of a whole
                 system redesign to be realised and the impact of improved outcomes for service users, their family and friends and
                 the wider community to be limited.
                A lack of robust commissioning and procurement actions that could result in a number of negative outcomes including
                 project delay, disengagement from key stakeholders and potentially legal challenge to Norfolk County Council and
                 partner agencies.
                Increased confusion and anxiety of existing service providers, potential new service providers, service users and their
                 family and friends.
                Reduced agency and partnership performance.
                New services in place that do not meet client group needs.

       All of which could have a detrimental effect on
                The quality of the services commissioned
                The outcomes for drug and alcohol misusers, their family and friends and the wider community
                The relationships and future joint working of the N-DAP partner agencies

10.3   The proposed project governance and accountability structure and initial project plan would mitigate these risks by:




Anne-Louise Schofield                                       Page 6                                                draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
                Ensuring clarity of roles and responsibilities
                Enabling continuous project management and monitoring is in place
                Ensuring risks can be managed effectively and that appropriate actions to limit these are taken at the right points in
                 time
                Ensuring that all relevant partners, service users, family and friends and the wider community are consulted on and
                 actively involved and engaged as appropriate.
                Developing contingency plans to ensure current service continuation/extension if potential delays cause the
                 requirement for the new service commencement date to be moved.

Appendix A – Initial project action plan


Project Plan for:            N-DAP Adult Drug and Alcohol Treatment Systems 2012 Commissioning

Project aim:                 To re design and commission the Norfolk adult drug and alcohol treatment system with the aim of meeting
                             the identified needs of the local population

Timespan:                    September 2010 to October 2012

Brief project description:

Phase 1 – Project design and development
This phase will include the development, design and agreement of the commissioning project approach, governance structure and
accountability responsibilities. It is vital during this period that key stakeholders are engaged and fully informed of plans as they are
developed, are actively involved in shaping the final project plan and communicating the key project messages across their respective
agencies. Lastly this phase will include the convening of the 2012 Commissioning Steering Group and Procurement Sub Group.

Phase 2 – Engagement and development
This phase encompasses three parts:
     Needs Assessment – the development of a countywide drug and alcohol needs assessment is the responsibility of the N-DAP
      Needs Assessment Expert Group. The DAAT Senior and Research Officer who directly reports the group’s progress to the N-
      DAP Adult Joint Commissioning Group lead this. The emerging findings and full report (along with other partnership reports
      and national guidance) will be considered by the Engagement and Development Groups to aid the development of their
      recommendations.
     Engagement and pathway development –5 engagement and development groups will work between September/October 2010
      and April 2011. They will bring together stakeholders from across the county to consider the needs of their pathway area and
      develop recommendations to the Commissioning Steering Group for future service delivery design.
     Gap analysis – Commissioners will bring together information from a number of sources including the needs assessment and
      the reports from the Engagement and Development Groups to develop the gap analysis.

Phase 3 – Pre-tender
All the information gathered during phase two will be used to draft the new N-DAP Adult Joint Commissioning Strategy and within this
the partnerships commissioning intentions. It will also be used to aid the development the service specifications that will go out for
procurement. These alongside the development of the tender documentation make up the main elements of phase two. The expected
Anne-Louise Schofield                                         Page 8                                                 draft 1.1 - 17/8/10
performance and delivery standards of the new contracts will need to be fully considered within the stage. This will need to result in
the development of a new performance management framework for the contracts that will commence once these have started.

Phase 4 – Tender
This phase is the main procurement phase where the final specifications go out to tender for bids by potential service contractors.
Preparation completed by the Procurement Steering Sub Group during phases, 1, 2 and 3 will be key in ensuring that this phase
works to plan and within timescales.

Phase 5 – Contracts let
Once the preferred provider(s) have been identified the contracts need to be agreed and let.

Phase 6 – New service development and commencement.
The new treatment system will need a period of time for the new services to develop and commence. Of key importance during this
phase is the transfer period between the old services and the new ones.
