Tips on incorporating apprenticeship and skills into public procurement


We are often asked whether conditions can be included in contracts relating to the provision of apprentices. Last month CCS issued a Procurement Policy Note (PPN) that may be helpful to member institutions who are considering this issue. Although the PPN applies only to central government and to contracts over £10m it does give some useful 'Dos and Don'ts' as well as example selection and award stage questions, criteria and measures. The PPN is available on the Further Education of Library Procurement.
