II.1.4) Short description:

Norfolk County Council reopened the application process and have awarded framework agreements to a number of external training providers to deliver quality apprenticeships across a variety of occupational areas throughout Norfolk. We sought further provision of current Apprenticeship Standards and Apprenticeship Frameworks as defined by the SFA. As new standards are developed, and frameworks close, we would expect Providers to be adaptable and flexible to support this. We will contact providers to identify their capacity and interest in delivering new standards as well as opening this opportunity to the market. The framework agreements are being let by Norfolk County Council as the Contracting Authority, but with the consent of Norfolk County Council, will be available for use by any District Council, any Public Sector body, any Educational establishment and NHS bodies operating in the geographical county of Norfolk or in any adjoining counties.

Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3) Additional information:

This procurement was managed electronically via the Council's e-procurement system.

The arrangement is multi-lotted and is open to multiple suppliers under each lot and is being let under the Light Touch Regime. The Framework Agreements differ from those let under the non-light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, will open the Framework Agreement periodically for new applicants throughout its term and reserves the right to extend the framework from its 48 month initial term for an additional 48 months, in two period of 24 months.

Contracts awarded under the framework may have a maximum total duration of 10 years. No contract awarded from the framework will be permitted to extend beyond 1.3.2037.

The framework agreements are being let by Norfolk County Council as the Contracting Authority, but with the consent of Norfolk County Council, will be available for use by any District Council, any Public Sector body, any Educational establishment and NHS bodies operating in the geographical county of Norfolk or in any adjoining counties.

The estimated value has been calculated based on the estimated annual levy payable by Norfolk County Council multiplied by the maximum length of the framework. We have estimated a value based on the assumption that all those organisations who have indicated they will use the Framework will do so and added these figures together.
