The Client serves the public by upholding the rule of law, and by delivering an efficient, fair, timely and effective justice system in which the public has confidence.

• We enforce the decisions of the court: we punish offenders and work to reduce reoffending. We prevent victims by changing lives.

• In partnership with an independent judiciary, we run the courts and tribunals service, helping individuals, businesses and families resolve their disputes.

• We protect vulnerable members of society and children, and help to ensure victims of crime get justice.

• We provide legal aid and advice for those cases where it is justified.

• We develop policy on all aspects of law and justice, both domestically and internationally, helping to build a legal and rights framework that is clear and proportionate and that commands confidence around the world.

The Client is a major government department, at the heart of the justice system. Responsible for courts, prisons and probation services, we work to ensure sentences are served and offenders are given rehabilitation opportunities to become law-abiding citizens.

The Commercial and Contract Management Directorate (CCMD) manages over 1000 active contracts and spends £3.5bn a year and is crucial to the successful delivery of prison and court reform programmes. It provides procurement and contract management activities across a wide range of categories, ensuring value for money agreements are in place for wider staff to source goods and services from.

Prison Education Portfolio

Your specific responsibilities will involve you working on one of the most exciting new portfolios of commercial work within the MoJ – Prison Education category part of the CCMD Rehabilitation Services portfolio.

Client became responsible for the provision of OLASS in October 2016, transferring from the Department for Education (DfE) to MOJ as a result of a Machinery of Government change process. Concurrent with this (November 2016), the Secretary of State for Justice released a white paper detailing greater levels of autonomy for prison governors to hold them accountable for delivery of certain outcomes; offender education is viewed as central to the success of this new policy.

The Prison Education Commercial team in CCMD’s Rehabilitation Services portfolio is leading the strategy and implementation for delivery of the next generation prison education

services contracts. As part of this we have established a framework for Prison Education (PEF) and alongside this a Prison Education Dynamic Purchasing System (PEDPS) for providers of more specific or niche education services outside of the core offer. We are currently running Call-off competitions to appoint suppliers from the PEF through to January 2019 and Call-offs from the DPS framework.

A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is an electronic system used to purchase commonly used goods and services. Unlike traditional frameworks which are closed to new entrants for their duration a DPS allows suppliers to apply to join or decide to leave at any time during its term.

The commercial team are also responsible for the end to end evaluation cycle of on boarding new Suppliers to the DPS. Suppliers can join at any time and will be evaluated against a set selection criterion.

You will work as a part of a dedicated senior commercial team responsible for driving forward the commercial provisioning of these new arrangements.

This post provides a great opportunity to learn new skills and knowledge whilst contributing to the delivery of a high profile programme aimed at significantly reducing future reoffending in our society.
