Options considered and rejected were;

 

5

Part Time Provision – Construction

 

£35,000

3

No award

-

7

Complementary – Bespoke

 

£27,000

8

No award

Lots 5 and 7, the DPS panel determined that no award should be made due to unsatisfactory outcomes from the bidding process. In part, this was because of the DPS not supporting the highly personalised and bespoke nature of the provision needed for learners, but also because the quality of the submissions were poor and it was not possible to make an informed decision about the appropriateness of respective providers’ proposed offer.

 

Assessment of Risk;

The source of funding is from secondary schools included in the pilot
