UKCES tender update

The publication of the tender documents for the Employer Ownership of Skills pilot has been delayed.

The full application form and guidance was due to be published “towards the end of February 2012”, according to a prospectus published by the UKCES.

A spokesperson for the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) said: “BIS and DfE, working with UKCES, will shortly issue the application form and guidance for bidders interested in the Employer Ownership pilot. We are expecting to issue these documents next week.”
