NOMS Co-Financing Organisation (CFO) provision for the European Social Fund (ESF) 2014-2020 Operational Programme
Contracts will be let as Part B services contracts, under the Public Contract Regulations (2006).
The provision will operate across 9 English ESF Contract Areas and the indicative financial allocation is detailed as follows:
• North East £8,535,577
• North West £18,358,652
• Yorkshire & Humberside £13,722,646
• East Midlands £13,444,587
• West Midlands £13,591,200
• East of England £11,225,168
• South East £16,267,309

• South West (excluding Cornwall) £8,478,280
Emphasis will be on those furthest from mainstream activity, with an additional focus on a number of specific hard-to-reach groups within each ESF Contract Area (ECA).
Delivery is built around a case management model and operates across both custody and the community. It is envisaged that up to 70% of programme commencements will take place in custody, with a focus on through the gate activity (complementary to Transforming Rehabilitation delivery). The remaining commencements will take place in the community.
