This invitation to tender (ITT) is issued by West Yorkshire Combined Authority (Combined Authority). The Combined Authority is running this procurement process on its own behalf. This procurement process is for an Adult Skills Training Framework which is a multiple lot, multiple supplier framework, with a maximum of one supplier appointed to each lot. This competition will appoint one Lead Delivery Partner for each lot with tenderers having the ability to apply for one or multiple lots in this process. There are nine available lots and therefore the Combined Authority will appoint up to nine Lead Delivery Partners. Once appointed they will be the Lead Delivery Partner for that chosen lot however as this is a framework there is no guarantee of revenue to the chosen supplier. Indicative estimations of likely throughput have been included with further detail in appendix 1. The framework will be ran for 4 years with a maximum value of £30 million.
