DWP’s Commercial Agreement for Employment and Health Related Services 

ERSA is pleased to be able to inform you of the organisations on Tier 1 and Tier 2 of the DWP Commercial Agreement for Employment and Health Related Services (CAEHRS).

In total the DWP received submissions from 61 organisations with a total of 171 compliant submissions across the 7 regional lots. Overall, this has resulted in a total of 28 organisations being awarded a place on CAEHRS, 21 of which have multiple places and 7 have single awards.

As set out during this competition the design of CAEHRS allows the department to offer further places they become available. The department does not currently have any plans to undertake further activity at this time but will formally notify the market as appropriate. Those that have been unsuccessful on this occasion are able to bid for future opportunities on CAEHRS.

As communicated previously CAEHRS is already planned to be used for Scotland JETS delivery in Regional Lot 7 later this month and the Long-term unemployment programme that subject to further decisions will be outlined shortly.

ERSA’s Chief Executive, Elizabeth Taylor said “This announcement is welcomed by the sector. ERSA is scheduling a series of events to provide more information about the successful organisations and the DWP’s plans, these events will keep the sector informed, build partnerships, and enable collaboration”.

ERSA is running a series of Meet the Primes events, the first of which will be on Friday 23 October at 1pm. This will be followed by ERSA Member Forums based on the 7 CPA/ regional lot areas.
