We are pleased to confirm the start of our open procurement for the period January 2024 through to July 2024. Our approach is aligned with recent changes made to subcontracting requirements by the ESFA. The procurement is following the light-touch regime outlined in regulations 74 to 77 of the Public Contract Regulations 2015.
Contracts will cover one academic year (2023/24), with a focus predominantly on niche, localised delivery within Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and be wholly aligned to the following specialisms:
The College has a particular interest in subcontracting provision that compliments rather than duplicates provision delivered at its own campuses, or through its online provision.
Where delivery would take place outside of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, the College will consider provision that duplicates that delivered by its own campuses or online provision.
The College is seeking to procure up to four suitable training providers to deliver non-devolved Adult Education Budget funded training in line with our subcontracting policy and the ESFA’s published guidance.
The aggregate value of funds available will be up to £980,000 for the 2023/24 academic year in line with the timings stipulated in our ESFA allocation breakdown (August-March and April-July).
The timeline for the procurement is as follows:
