Contract News – Prior Information Notice regarding HMPPS Adult Prison Education Services in England

Published on: 23/03/2022
Procuring Authority: Ministry of Justice
Contract value: £1.5bn
Description: Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) is establishing the Government’s vision to deliver a Prisoner Education Service which equips prisoners with the numeracy, literacy, skills and qualifications they need to get jobs or apprenticeships after they leave custody. We will therefore be seeking to procure new contracts to deliver education services in prisons across England.
Our vision is that everyone of working age and able to work should leave prison prepared for employment or further education and training. The new service will therefore expand the scope of ‘prison education’, bringing together areas of learning, skills and work into one transformative service. This will facilitate better outcomes for prisoners on release and ultimately contribute to reducing reoffending.
To achieve this vision, we are seeking to procure new education contracts by engaging with a diverse range of providers and suppliers that can offer prisoners a range of learning opportunities.
In issuing this Prior Information Notice, the MoJ is seeking to inform the market of this planned procurement with a view to initiating a series of market consultations in the near future.
The MoJ intends to hold a market engagement launch event on 26th April 10:45 to 12:15 via MS Teams webinar.
