Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
The council via the Fastershire project has
identified that Herefordshire residents would benefit from training
to enable them to better understand the advantages of going online
and to develop the skills to use the internet. Therefore the
council is seeking to commission ICT training providers to deliver
beginners’ internet and computer training workshops and
support in Herefordshire for the period 1st May 2021 to 31st March
2023 to a maximum cost of £15,000 per annum. With potential
extension of the contract a further 12 months.
An Invitation to Tender was published via the council’s e-tendering portal and, following compliance checks and the evaluation of the quality elements of the bids, the Evaluation Panel recommends that four providers are awarded contracts to admit them onto the approved list of providers to deliver beginners’ internet and computer training workshops for Fastershire.
It is anticipated that not all workshops will be allocated to the same provider, as this will be based on lowest price and provider availability for each workshop.
