Mutuals Support Programme – One to Many Training for Potential Public Service Mutuals (PSMs)

Learning from the first six months of the Mutuals Support Programme has highlighted that many public sector workers seeking to form Public Service Mutuals (PSMs) need support in the same areas. This includes, support to identify business opportunities, cost their services and create business plans, engage their parent body and staff and to understand what is needed to shift from excellent in house service delivery to a vibrant, robust business (including but not limited to social enterprise). The Customer is therefore seeking a Supplier to provide training and capability development to those seeking to establish PSMs, which will fill these knowledge gaps and enable participants to create robust business plans, successfully engage their parent body and staff whilst developing the confidence they will need to lead the project to success. Indicative budget: • a development and delivery to pilot cohort cost of between £10,000 and £20,000 • a per cohort delivery cost of between £5,000 and £15,000 as demand requires. Cabinet Office is releasing a draft specification (see additional documents) for the procurement of a one to many training programme for potential public services mutuals. The Cabinet Office is keen to receive feedback from the market on the content of this specification and the suggested payment model. Responses should be sent via email to with the subject title ‘MSP-ONETOMANY’ no later than 5pm on Friday 23rd November.
