In January 2010 the Centre advertised a tender for the services of organisations to provide specialist Organisational Development Support Services to both emerging and established social enterprises across Wales. A Framework Agreement was established. Due to increased demand the Centre now has a requirement for specialist suppliers to be added to that Framework Agreement.

The specialist support services will include knowledge and skills in the area of Corporation Tax, Value Added Tax (VAT) and business finance and company valuations that would not be available through mainstream business support.
The specialist support will compliment other organisational development services currently offered to clients of the Centre. This will ensure their tailored support package is relevant, timely and specific to their individual needs.
The Framework Agreement and Service provision will continue until December 2013, subject to continued EU and Welsh Government funding, with any extension period being approved by the Centre.
All client beneficiaries will receive the Service in the most efficient and cost effective way.
The Centre requires Organisations to provide the following specialist Service:
• Specialist corporation tax and VAT advice and guidance – provided by an adviser (the “Adviser”).
• Company valuations in respect to potential employee buy-out situations – provided by an adviser (the “Adviser”)
• Professional commentary on financial information and company accounts presented by Centre clients – provided by an adviser (the “Adviser”)
