Opportunities to join our supply chain

As a prime provider, we bring together supply chain partners that complement one another to better meet customers’ diverse and complex needs.

We are always keen to work with other organisations:

  • on an informal basis to extend the range of support, to which we can signpost our customers;

  • on a strategic basis, to establish joint projects and bidding with organisations that share our values and performance, and possess complementary skills, infrastructure and experience to our own. 

  • as a sub-contractor to other prime organisations to whom we can offer our specialist expertise; or 

  • as the prime organisation ourselves to bring together supply chain partners that complement one another to better meet customers’ diverse and complex needs.

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES

To prepare for the launch of tender opportunities through the Commercial Agreement for Employment and Health Related Services (CAEHRS), the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF) and other publicly funded programmes, Business 2 Business are inviting applications from employment and skills providers across England and Wales that wish to join our framework of supply chain partners.

​​The CAEHRS framework will run for five years (2020-2025) during which tier one and tier two tender opportunities could amount to an aggregate contract value of up to £7.5 billion. Business 2 Business has been successful in being selected as a tier two CAEHRS provider by the Department for Work and Pensions’ (“DWP”) in all five English Lots on the DWP CAEHRS Framework:

·         Regional Lot 1 - Central England – Tier 2

·         Regional Lot 2 - North East England – Tier 2

·         Regional Lot 3 - North West England – Tier 2

·         Regional Lot 4 - Southern England – Tier 2

·         Regional Lot 5 – London and Home Counties – Tier 2

We are looking to develop supply chains of end to end delivery partners and a framework of specialist/call off partners of employability, work-based learning, supported employment and self-employment support who can support the delivery of the DWP CAEHRS opportunities and other publicly funded programmes such as the UK Shared Prosperity Fund (UKSPF).

​We are particularly keen to receive framework applications from organisations that have strong engagement with participants and employers, the capacity and expertise to meet participant needs and a successful track record of delivering publicly funded skills and/or employability programmes in their LEP area(s).

​If you wish to work in partnership with Business2Business to deliver projects funded through the CAEHRS, UKSPF and other publicly funded programmes, please complete the application form and return to Rob Gray, Strategic Development Officer, at rob@business2businesslimited.com.
