  • This ADPS is compliant with UK procurement legislation - we've done the work, so there's no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • Service providers listed on the ADPS are assessed and monitored during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability.
  • In addition, elements such as Ofsted ratings and presence on the RoATP are monitored by ESPO accordingly.
  • Service providers can apply to be a part of the ADPS at time throughout the duration, future-proofing the solution as the market develops and new apprenticeship standards are introduced over time.
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions to underpin all orders so no need to worry.
  • The award of individual further competitions within the ADPS can be quicker than direct procurement procedures, with the minimum time limit for the return of tenders being 10 days.
  • Local and SME service providers are encouraged to become part of ADPS, given that the application process is simplified for all and that any provider can join at any time during the life of the ADPS.
