The Mayor's European Social Fund (ESF) 2019 - 2023 Programme

Procurement for The Mayor’s European Social Fund (ESF) 2019 – 2023 Programme has now opened. To apply for this opportunity, visit the portal. Please note that the ESF Programme Tender on ProContract will be unavailable for one week starting from 09:00 on Wednesday 16 January to correct some formatting errors in the parameters of certain questions.  Updated versions of some of the procurement documents, correcting some identified technical errors and incorporating clarifications, will be published when the Tender becomes available again on ProContract, together with a summary of the key changes.  In view of the potential delay to the Tender process caused by the Tender being unavailable on ProContract during this period the Tender submission deadline has been extended to Friday 1 March 2019 (12:00 midday).

We expect to procure a range of skills and employment programmes for adults and young Londoners who are furthest from the labour market and those who face in-work poverty.  These projects have been developed to respond to priorities identified within the London  Economic Action Partnership's (LEAP) European Structural Investment Fund strategy, the Mayor's Skills for Londoners Strategy and other statutory mayoral strategies.

As part of this process, a Prior Information Notice (PIN) can be accessed online.  The PIN sets out more information about the tendering process for providers interested in bidding for these contracts.

An Information Session for the Mayor's ESF 2019-2023 Programme took place on 13 December 2018 at Coin Street Community Centre in Southwark. Access the presentation and the questions and answers from this session.
