The Combined Authority intends to establish a “Skills Framework” of high quality providers for a 4 year period (3+1) which will enable us to either “call-off” through a light touch regime process or “direct award” providers deliver skills provision in the Tees Valley over this period.
Providers wishing to secure any future funding to deliver skills provision on behalf of the Tees Valley Combined Authority will need have secured a place on the Skills Framework.
The Invitation to Tender for the Skills Framework has been launched on the North East Procurement Organisation (NEPO) https://procontract.due-north.com/

The outcomes of the “call-off” will be subject to final Cabinet approval in June 2021, and thereafter funding awards will be confirmed to providers and funding agreements issued.
