VCAT have recently been successful in applying to join a CYPS commissioning framework – this allows VCAT to enter ‘mini competitions’ to bid for contracts to deliver Early Intervention Services on behalf of CYPS over the next three years. 25 organisations were successful in joining this framework, a full list and background details can be found on the CYPS website http://www.cyps.org.uk/framework/
VCAT applied to join the framework as the lead agency of a consortium of local voluntary and community sector (VCS) organisations from across Trafford. It is VCAT’s intention to offer the opportunity to VCAT members to join this consortia, subject to membership and prospectus criteria, to apply for ‘mini competitions’ under this framework.
