|GMCA Flexible Procurement System – open for applications GMCA’s Education, Work and Skills Flexible Procurement System (FPS) is designed to deliver a cohesive approach to funding for skills and ensure high quality delivery. |
In the short-term this brings together devolved Adult Education Budget (AEB) and the ESF funded Skills for Growth (SfG), but will be the route for all funding GMCA get directly from government departments.
If you are not on the FPS then you will not be able to apply to GMCA for funding to deliver Skills for Growth going forward.
The FPS re-opened at the start of May, with a deadline of Wednesday 26th May. Once on the FPS this will significantly reduce the info you need to provide in the future when applying for GMCA funding.
For details on the process and to apply to be on the FPS, please go through the Chest. Please also use the chest for any questions – we can’t respond to individual emails.
For a walkthrough on how to apply, please see the recording of our previous market engagement event.
For help and support on information governance, please see the recording of our previous information governance webinar.
GMCA want to encourage innovative partnerships and collaborations between skills providers and employers; the FPS is designed for skills providers of all shapes, sizes & specialisms.
Deadline for applications: Wednesday 26th May
