Tender: JCP Autism Accreditation pilot

DWP has issued an invitation to tender for an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Accreditation Pilot. The Invitation to Tender (ITT 21630) is available to view on the Bravo Solution website and closes on 20 September.

DWP has carried out an internal assessment of their employment support offer to people with ASD within their Health Model Office (HMO) Jobcentre sites. To continue to improve their service, they are testing the design and development of an Autism Spectrum Disorder framework which will include assessment and accreditation.

The Department is seeking to contract with a single supplier with a proven track record of providing advice, support and assurance to improve external organisation’s service delivery for people with ASD. 

The successful supplier will shape a service delivery framework for people with ASD, taking account of DWP business models, working practices and current learning. The supplier will support colleagues in Jobcentre Plus test sites to follow that framework. The organisation will then be asked to accredit those test sites’ compliance with that framework. The whole process must be completed by the 31st March 2022, no extension will be possible.

The specification is attached below for guidance but interested organisations should ensure they view the latest versions of all documentation by accessing them at Bravo Solution.
