The framework agreement does not guarantee any value or volume of work/services. Any Services will be called-off as and when required subject to the Service Provider’s performance and budget approvals. The Call-off Contract for this Framework will be issued for each annual intake. The selected Provider will have access to government funding and will have applied to be on the Register of Apprenticeship Training. The selected Provider will have facilities for providing training as described in the documentation. The Training Provider must be able to deliver the contract to the required standard of both TfL and the Skills Funding Agency (SFA) by demonstrating the high quality of service expected to meet Ofsted inspection and audit ratings. Bidders may submit a tender for one or more lots.. This Framework Agreement is being let under the ‘Light Touch Regime’ set out in Regulations 74 to 77 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 (PCR 2015). Under the Light Touch Regime, Authorities have flexibility as to the process or procedure to be used when purchasing certain services, including the training services to be procured under this Invitation to Tender. In this instance, TfL and the GLA Functional Bodies wish to establish a Framework Agreement with multiple suppliers that will set out the terms and conditions for making specific purchases (call-offs) under the relevant lots. The Framework Agreement differs from those not let under the Light Touch Regime in that the Authority, exercising its flexibility in accordance with the PCR 2015, may elect in its absolute discretion (but is not required to) periodically open the Framework to new, additional suppliers per lot — details can be found in the tender documents.
