The re-procurement process has been heavily influenced by the views of children, young people and their families and carers. The information about how people were involved in the re-procurement can be found at the link below.

The actual  procurement process (looking for possible providers of these services) for services for children and young people in Devon started on 5 February 2018 but has now closed and commissioners are in the process of evaluating the bids that have been received.
