BECOMING A FUNDED ELC PROVIDER IN GLASGOW
In early 2020 Glasgow City Council embarked upon a Procurement Exercise inviting tender submissions for the delivery of Funded Early Learning and Childcare. A framework contract was entered into with successful bidders for the period 1 August 2020 until 31 July 2025.
Council Committee agreed that Education Services would be permitted to enter into further contracts out with the framework contract, on the basis that an appropriate process be put in place to ensure due diligence. This agreement is in place for the duration of the framework contract, 1 August 2020 until end of July 2025.
Education ELC have a process in place aligned with requirements of the procurement exercise. This includes completion of an offline European Single Procurement Document, submission of Audited Accounts, Confirmation of Insurance Cover, Care Inspectorate Registration, and evidence of meeting the National Standard.
There are no set deadlines for this separate contract application process, but we do advise that this can take approximately 12 weeks from the date of submission.
