Attendo: High quality marks gave Attendo renewed contracts in Skarpnäck

Following a quality tender with 11 bidders, Attendo has been awarded
renewed confidence to operate all group homes and daily activities
centers for people with disabilities in Skarpnäck, Stockholm. The new
contracts extend until November 2019 and include two new group homes
scheduled for opening.

- It is extremely gratifying that we have gotten renewed confidence,
especially considering that the tender was based entirely on quality
parameters. We see this as testimony to the way we work to be a
quality leader in our industry. The best possible care with focus on
the individual has been our driving force in Skarpnäck and will
continue to be so going forward, says Cecilia Addamshill, Business
Area Manager of Attendo Scandinavia Care.

Since 2009, Attendo has been operating all group homes and daily
activities centers for people with disabilities in Skarpnäck. The
current contracts expire on November 30ththis year and last November
the Skarpnäck District Board initiated a new procurement process.

Attendo got the highest quality marks in the new procurement in which
a total of 11 bidders, including the District's own operations, took
part. Attendo is now entrusted to continue operating all existing
units as well as two new group homes that are scheduled to open at
year-end 2016 and in 2018. A total of 16 group homes and six daily
activities centers with an estimated yearly turnover of about 120
MSEK are covered by the contracts, which extend until November 30,
2019.

Several factors concerning Attendo's quality work were highlighted in
the procurement. Most notably the cooperation model developed in
Skarpnäck, where clients, relatives, politicians and officials
regularly are invited to dialogue with the purpose of improving
quality.

- We have made many improvements since we took over the daily
operations in 2009. During the new contract period, we will continue
our work to strengthen the individual. People with disabilities
sometimes have trouble to raise their voice in society. That's why we
focus on participation, influence and collaboration issues, says
Cecilia Addamshill.

The winning bid includes investments in training for managers and
employees, continued focus on hiring graduated supporting educators
as well as new recruitments to the group homes that will be opened
during the contract period.
