Staggered and late ESF tenders ‘affecting bid quality’, AELP warns

 In Uncategorized

The staggered launch of bidding windows for £650m-worth of European Social Fund (ESF) cash between next month and May could result in providers competing on the basis of “available resources rather than delivery expertise,” the Association of Employment and Learning Providers (AELP) has warned.
The first bidding window — for provision for young people considered not in education, employment, or training (Neet) — opened on December 7 and the second is expected to launch today (December 14).
The rest are expected to open “at regular intervals between January and May 2016,” said a Skills Funding Agency (SFA) spokesperson.
