The Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority have published an Early Engagement Notice to conduct initial pre-procurement market testing in relation to procurement of devolved Adult Education Budget (AEB) delivery from 1 August 2019.
The annual value to be procured will be between £3.5m and £4m. The procurement process will allow providers to come forward with flexible and innovative approaches which will maximise the opportunities presented by AEB devolution.
The Combined Authority is testing principles and seeking provider input ahead of a Market Engagement Workshop to be held on 17 October 2018. It forms part of a wider stakeholder engagement including consultation with members of the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority Provider Forum.
The full Early Engagement Notice can be found on the Contracts Finder website.
More information about devolved AEB in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough including booking arrangements for the Market Engagement Workshop can be found on the Combined Authority website.
