PeoplePlus is pleased to announce it has been selected as a provider for the Department for Work and Pensions’ (“DWP”) Commercial Agreement for the Provision of Employment and Health Related Services (“CAEHRS”) framework.
CAEHRS replaces the DWP’s existing Umbrella Agreement which expires in 2021. It will become the default framework for contracting employability and health related programmes. CAEHRS will run for five years (2020-2025) and the framework will cover a potential aggregate contract value of £7.5 billion.
This UK-wide commercial agreement is organised into a national Lot and seven regional Lots split across two tiers. Tier 1 covers the commissioning of services with a value of over £11 million in England and £6 million in Scotland and Wales. Tier 2 covers the commissioning of services with a value of between £2 million and £11 million in England and £2 million to £6 million in Scotland and Wales.
PeoplePlus has been successful in securing a place on the national Lot and has been selected as a Tier 1 provider in all six regions across England and Scotland, and as a Tier 2 provider in Wales.
This means that we will be able to play an even more important part of the National Recovery and support hundreds of thousands of people into employment.
