II.1.6) Description/object of the contract: Expressions of interest are
invited from organisations wishing to become Qualified Suppliers to Ufi
for the supply of learning materials. Ufi is at the heart of the UK
Government"s vision for Lifelong Learning. Ufi has two strategic
objectives - to stimulate demand for lifelong learning, and to promote
the availability of and access to high quality and innovative learning,
particularly through the use of information and communications
technologies. As part of the process for achieving these objectives, the
Ufi will broker the provision of learning materials by endorsing
materials which already meet its learning quality criteria, by enhancing
other materials so that they meet its criteria and, where there is a lack
of suitable provision, by commissioning the development of new material.
The purpose of this notice is to invite suppliers of existing material
(or material currently under development) to express an interest in
becoming a qualified supplier to the Ufi. All material will be
distributed via a national network of learning centres. A Qualified
Supplier will be a company, institution, organisation or consortium,
which is capable of developing material to a specification and o the Ufi
criteria. The criteria are available as a separate document. Current
priority areas are basic skills, information and communication
technologies and small and medium enterprises (for example, in the areas
of management development, financial management, marketing, etc). The
organisation will be assessed as a whole on whether they are capable of
producing open distance learning material against our endorsement
criteria. Acceptance onto the Qualified Supplier list does not, in
itself, guarantee a contract to develop learning materials, but does
ensure you will be considered for tender invitation. Companies accepted
on to the qualified supplier list will have names put on the website
unless the state it is not required.
