This current delivery plan is subject to change dependent on the on-boarding of beneficiaries to the programme.
The scope of this service is to include:
— A technical review of selected processes against industry standards and to identify improvement opportunities, with the key deliverables being capability and cost reduction;
— Development of an Advanced Manufacturing training plan with the beneficiary in conjunction with the SiG team to close any skills gaps identified by the Technical review;
— Provision of all training material for on-site coaching and support;
— Provision of any formal training courses identified from the technical review;
— Provide a list of available training courses;
— On-site coaching and training of up to 48 days in years 1 and 2 with the beneficiary;
— Provision of all labour to carry out the technical assessment, coaching and training over a period of up to 2 years;
— The vendor’s labour will be expected to work with the Sharing in Growth supplier development teams who will also be working with the Beneficiary;
— The vendor should plan to have between 1 and a maximum of 3 project engagements per beneficiary, however detailed requirement and project length will be discussed at the beneficiary with the Sharing in Growth team prior to any activity;
— Planning assumptions are to be based on an average beneficiary, but there must be flexibility to be able to adapt to specific local conditions.
The guideline approach expected for each beneficiary is as follows:
1) Technical review and potential beneficiary scoping visit that is triggered by the SiG supplier Development Manager (up to 2 man days per project engagement);
2) Beneficiary engagement preparation, confirming the required offering (up to 2 man days per project engagement);
3) On-site Training (up to a maximum of 48 days per beneficiary).
A combined total of 60 days per beneficiary is the maximum that can be allocated unless further days are authorised by the Supplier Development Manager.
The Vendor will include any Project Management costs in the day rate that is proposed.
The demand resources required may be higher or lower and we cannot guarantee any level of work.

As such, the stages of the tender process are subject to a ‘Light Touch Regime.’ Although the Authority intends that the tender process will follow a procedure similar to the open procedure in certain respects, for the avoidance of doubt the Authority is not running the process as though the open procedure applies, and so reserves the right to depart from that procedure at any point.
