The Services to be delivered are with reference to the schools bundle procured by way of a Public Private Partnership (PPP) by the DoES in 2001/2002. This bundle of schools is referred to as the ‘Pilot Schools’. The successful Consultant is required to complete a Mid-term Review (the ‘Review’ or ‘MR’) of the Pilot Schools on behalf of the DoES. The Review is to be delivered as a professional written report based on a robust methodology. It shall be completed following a detailed review and assessment of all relevant information. It shall also include a schedule of recommendations (with appropriate justification); and a template/model for use by the DoES when conducting mid-term reviews of other PPPs in the education sector.
The principal objective of the Review is to examine all aspects of delivering the Pilot Schools under the PPP model relative to delivering schools under the conventional schools delivery model, and to assess whether the Pilot Schools project objectives have been met.
