Lincolnshire County Council is setting up a Modified Dynamic Purchasing System (MDPS) to support the procurement of Apprenticeship Training for the Council and its Maintained Schools. Suppliers must be registered on the Education and Skills Funding Agency's (ESFA) Register of Apprenticeship Training Providers - details of which can be found here In order to provide Lincolnshire County Council and its maintained schools with apprenticeship training, suppliers will need to join the MDPS. Through this we will issue requests for Delivery Plans for inclusion within our Catalogue of Apprenticeship Provision. Delivery Plans will be evaluated against quality criteria, and as long as they meet or exceed the quality threshold of 70%, the suppliers offer will be added to the Catalogue. This Catalogue will be circulated to the Councils corporate departments and its maintained schools, where recruiting officers can perform desk based evaluations to identify the offer that most closely meets their needs. This procurement activity will cover all apprenticeship training needs up until March 2023, with the option to extend until March 2028. As and when new needs are identified, new Delivery Plan requests will be issued via the MDPS. Further information relating to the process can be found in the Tender documents can be found on
