Milton Keynes Council (MKC) wishes to invite applications for admission to Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) in respect of the supply of Apprenticeship Services. Please ignore contract start date mentioned above. The DPS is will be live for 5 years from 01 February 2019 to 31 January 2024. The initial "Round" for this DPS will be open for at least 30 calendar days. Following on from this, each "Round" will then be open for 3 months (close every quarter). This means that Applications can be submitted throughout the duration of the DPS, but the Authority will only process the applications on a quarterly basis. Funding for apprenticeships in England is accessed by Employers from central Government Funds since 6 April 2017. This is a drawdown of funds paid by Employers in the form of an 'Apprenticeship Levy', and other funding available in the form of 'Co-Investment'. For Co-Investment funds Employers also contribute to the costs directly from their own funds. Training Providers may apply to deliver either or both types of funded provision through the Approved Provider List. The DPS will be an approved provider list which will be based on the Registration of Apprenticeship Training Providers (RoATP). The DPS will consist of sufficiently experienced and qualified Training Providers who can deliver education services to apprentices employed by public body organisations in England. DPS is being established pursuant to Regulation 74 of the Public Contracts Regulations. The procurement is being conducted under the Light Touch Regime ('LTR').
