Provision of educational, training, vocational, counselling and rehabilitation services

August 22, 2014

Contract notice: provision of educational, training, vocational, counselling and rehabilitation services. The MoJ Commercial and Contract Management Directorate, as the contracting authority on behalf of the Secretary of State for Justice, will work closely with the National Offender Management Service Co-Financing Organisation (NOMS CFO) who are the commissioning body for NOMS European Social Fund (ESF) provision, in respect of this procurement (together, ~the Authority~). NOMS was granted national CFO status by the ESF in 2009 and retains this status under the 2014-2020 ESF Operational Programme. It is under this Programme that the funds referred to in this contract notice have been allocated. The total level of funds allocated to NOMS CFO for the purpose of contracting for the delivery of services is GBP 115 28 ,000. The focus of NOMS CFO is to help offenders move towards mainstream provision or into employment by addressing their barriers to work through facilitating access to comprehensive support mechanisms appropriate to their individual circumstance and assessed need. Under this contract notice the Authority is seeking potential providers to assist with providing these comprehensive support mechanisms in each of the nine ESF Contract Areas (~ECAs~) identified below. This may entail provision of educational, training, vocational, counselling and rehabilitation services. These services will be provided to eligible offenders who are in custody or in the community (known as ~participants~). There will be an emphasis on providing these services to those participants furthest away from mainstream activity, with an additional focus on a number of specific hard-to-reach groups within each of the nine ECAs. These services will be delivered on a case management basis, developing a programme for each participant. It is expected that in up to 70% of cases these services will first be provided to participants when they are in custody. However, as participants progress through the case management programme it is expected that the split will become 50:50 between custody and community. This contract is divided into lots: yes Estimated value excluding VAT: 8 535 577 GBP Payable documents: no Time limit for receipt of tenders or requests to participate: 19.9.2014 - 1200 Language(s) in which tenders or requests to participate may be drawn up: English.
