Services Offered by Audit FE

Dear Sir/Madam

I understand at the recent Network Meeting that there was some discussion around providers being able to source value for money support for the newly required certificate of assurance in relation to subcontracting controls.  As mentioned by one of my clients (Ian Barrett from Baltic Training) I offer a service whereby I undertake all of the work in relation to checks on subcontractor controls, provide an assurance report and sign of the required certificate.

Please find attached a brochure outlining my company’s services and fees which I’d be grateful if you could circulate to the Network.  I would be grateful if you could ask providers to email me if they are interested in discussing the external assurance work or any other services.

My charges for the external assurance of subcontractors service would be £375.00 per day.

Kind regards

Melanie Thompson

Youth Employment Initiative/Durham Works Subcontractor Framework

Dear Colleague,

I would like to let you know that we are currently finalising the tender documentation for the Youth Employment Initiative/DurhamWorks Subcontractor Framework and, as an organisation potentially interested in bidding, I wanted to let you know. The Framework will be placed on NEPO in the coming fortnight and, if interested, you will need to register at if you haven’t done so already. We will only be procuring this Framework once, therefore this will be the only opportunity to potentially access subcontracted delivery under DurhamWorks.

By all means share this information with your own networks and please direct any questions through the NEPO portal once the opportunity is posted.
