Children and Young People’s Flexible Procurement Framework

The funding for North of Tyne Combined Authority children and young people’s programmes intends to build an inclusive economy, where all children and young people have equal opportunities to realise their potential and be part of the region’s future success.

To achieve this, we’ve launched a Children and Young People’s Flexible Procurement Framework and inviting a wide range of organisations and providers including public and private sector, independent training organisations, Voluntary and Community Sector Organisations (VCSE) organisations and other stakeholders, to tender for a place on the framework. The framework closes on Monday 22 April 2024 at midday. All documents can be viewed and applications made via the NEPO procurement portal.

The flexible procurement framework will initially be utilised to procure providers for NTCA investment fund allocation for education improvement and child poverty prevention programmes. Further details on these programmes can be found at Child Poverty Prevention Programme – NTCA (
