Cumbria LSCi operates a two stage application process. The Funding Gateway Prospectus for Discretionary Funds 2004-2006 contains the application form and guidance notes. At the first stage organisations applying to tender have to complete the stage one form, this will be assessed and successful organisations will progress to Stage 2.
At Stage 2 Cumbria LSC will appoint a Learning Adviser/Contract Manager to carry out checks of the Provider’s:
- Quality assurance systems
- Financial health
- Equality and diversity policies and procedures
- Health and safety procedures
If the Provider meets the LSC’s requirements in respect of the above, contract negotiations will be entered into.
