Providers will be able to apply to join the Impact Project DPS in respect of eight Service Lots covering a wide range of services (including engagement, skills, training, support, work placements, and end to end provision for example) and some supplies (e.g. bus passes, protective clothing). Please see the related documentation available on this page for full details.
The estimated total value of the Impact Project DPS is £19,300,000. The estimated value of individual Contracts which will be awarded under the Impact Project DPS is between £500 and £500,000.
