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.

​​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 3 - North West England – Tier 2

·         Regional Lot 4 - Southern England – 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).
