This is from the GETS website for government-related contracts. Request for proposals (RFP) out shortly:

Overview

The purpose of this Notice of Intent is to advise the market of the Department of Corrections’ intention to release a Request for Proposal (RFP) for the supply of Prison-based Literacy and Numeracy Support Services.

The Department is seeking the supply of Literacy and numeracy support services that will address the high-level of literacy and numeracy need present within the prison population that act as a barrier to prisoners successfully engaging in higher-level education, vocational training and other rehabilitative interventions.

The Department will be looking to procure both face-to-face literacy and numeracy programmes for prisons, and wider support services that will help prisons to better address the literacy and numeracy needs of prisoners.

The Department is interested in a demand-based model of delivery, that will be provided to all public prisons, where programmes will be tailored to the specific needs of the prisoners, and support will be provided to prisons, in a manner that most effectively supports them in developing their capability to meet the literacy and numeracy needs of prisoners.

The RFP is intended to be released via the Government Electronic Tenders Service (GETS) in early – mid February 2015.

Note: No response to this Notice is required. The Respond By \ Close date is a mandatory field in GETS and is not relevant to this NOI.
