Prior Information Notice: Construction and the Built Environment qualifications

In early July 2018, we published our notice to restrict and commission a number of qualifications in the Construction and Built Environment sector. On 30 July, we published a Prior Information Notice (PIN) of our intention to tender in the Official Journal of the EU (OJEU) and on Sell2Wales.

We are now keen to engage with organisations that may be interested in taking part in a procurement process to set up a concession contract to develop and award these qualifications. These can either be recognised awarding bodies in Wales, or organisations wishing to achieve that status.

We are currently inviting parties interested in bidding for the contract to take part in conference calls with us, as part of our pre-tender engagement; this will take place between 28 August and 7 September 2018. If you would like to take part in these discussions, please email procurement@qualificationswales.org by Friday 24 August at the very latest to book a slot. You can read further information about this process in our Letter to Responsible Officers.
