Delivery costs are still to be determined, based on which functions will be delivered by the GLA and which functions will continue to be delivered by the Skills Funding Agency.  All devolved areas are currently in discussion with the Department for Education to ascertain the details of these functions. Like other devolved areas, we have requested separate implementation and administration budgets so that delivery costs do not have to be met from the devolved Adult Education Budget.
