Subcontracting and Partners
Since 2013/14 the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) Funding Rules included a new requirement for all SFA funded providers to publish a Fees and Charging Policy that outlines the fees colleges and providers are planning to set for sub-contracting in each academic year.
The East Sussex College Group Subcontractor and Supply Chain Fees and Charges Policy below provides a comprehensive overview of the supply-chain fees and charges policy and also outlines the process that the college will use to secure subcontractors.
The policy and indicative supply chain allocations were reviewed and agreed at the College's Finance and Human Resources (F&HR) subcommittee of the Corporation.
ESCG currently manages a network of 30 sub-contractors who deliver a range of qualifications. The Group's partnership with our network of sub-contractors enables ESCG to meet the needs of employers and learners across a broad range of sectors and a wide geographical area that complements existing provision undertaken by ESCG delivery teams.
If you wish to deliver (or co-deliver) education and training as a subcontractor or partner of ESCG and in order to ensure competition, transparency and value for money, this procurement will be conducted in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (or as may be amended) through the application of a ‘Light Touch’ process, whilst ensuring that delivery is through high-quality partners with the experience and expertise to meet specific employer and learner needs. Please register your interest via the Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) and complete the full Supplier Selection Questionnaire (SSQ) provided by Tenet Education Services, acting on behalf of East Sussex College Group (the Contracting Authority) suppliers.multiquote.com.
If you are a training provider who is interested in sub-contracting with us, please fill in a New Partners Expression of Interest Form and return it to us.
The college may also develop additional Higher Education work with partners and this separate policy outlines the process for developing this with new or existing partners.
