New Deal Schemes: Contracts

Volume 497: debated on Monday 12 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions which sub-contractors have non contracts for phase one of the Flexible New Deal; how many such sub-contractors are third sector organisations; and if she will make a statement. (290900)

[holding answer 9 September 2009]: A total of 14 prime contractors were awarded the FND Phase 1 contracts. Additionally about 150 organisations will become sub-contractors for FND1 and we expect of these approximately 40 percent of the total to be third sector organisations. These have not yet been finalised and numbers may be subject to change between now and when the contract go live, when DWP will have full visibility of the sub-contractors.
