BIS and SFA mull interim matrix support

Posted: 29 July 2010

Following the recent announcement of the termination of the matrix management contract, the Skills Funding Agency has issued a statement. It begins:

“The Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) is working with the Skills Funding Agency and matrix practitioners to explore interim options, for supporting the standard from 1 August 2010.

“It is important to note that:

  • BIS and the Skills Funding Agency are committed to the matrix Standard
  • BIS intends to re-start the procurement process to put in place long term arrangements for the management and support of the matrix Standard; and
  • There will be a period between the end of July 2010 when the current contract for the management and support of the matrix Standard ends and the start of the new contract begins. During this time all enquiries in relation to the matrix Standard will be handled by BIS.”
