Expressions of Interest (EOIs) are sought to deliver a rapid evidence review on the indirect short- and long-term impacts of Covid-19, and how these impacts could be mitigated. These reviews will be divided into seven distinct lots to cover each group of interest to the Department: Early Years, Primary Years, Lower Secondary, FE + Sixth form, HE, Parents/Carers and Workforce. This will produce a separate review for each of these areas. The Department has provided an initial list of topic areas to include (e.g. mental health and wellbeing, educational impact, access to support services, domestic conflict) but welcome additional topics if relevant. Contractors can bid to complete a review on a single area or can bid on multiple areas. Collaboration between contractors is welcomed. The Department for Education will manage this project, but are commissioning out this work on behalf of the SAGE task and finish group.
Note the the Estimated Value range of £60,000 to £85,000 is the combined total value of the seven separate lots. (So below the current procurement limits, above which procurements have to be more widely advertised etc.)
