Approved Supplier Register
Jobcentre Plus is currently revising its Approved Provider contracting strategy for the procurement of its mainstream provision known as the APR, with a clear focus on quality and continuous improvement.
To gain 'Approved' status, organisations must supply evidence that clearly demonstrates quality in the areas of project achievement, delivery and management that meets Jobcentre Plus minimum requirements.
Potential bidders DO NOT have to be on the APR in order to bid to operate an ESFi project. However, Jobcentre Plus may wish successful applicants to work towards gaining Approved status at a later date.
