TD1241 – DPS Specification for Provision of Alternative Education

Following an agreement with the LA to change our previous tender process, we are now well into several rounds of a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to create a brand new list of providers available for you to utilise. This new way of working has ensured we maintain the rigorous checks and submissions that a provider has to go through to be awarded a contract, but also allows for more flexibility, competition and choice in terms of quality Alternative Provision.

The specification document found here, outlines very clearly the contracted points that a provider who has been awarded a place on the DPS must adhere to. These are also the points that J16 as a team will monitor and record for each provider that Kingsmead School Commission.

Should you have any further questions about this document or how it is used, then please contact the AP Manager for further info.
