Assistive Technology Equipment and Training
This requirement is to create a framework with a suitable number of suppliers to provide computers, software, and training in addition to a range of other equipment such as ergonomic furniture, computer peripherals (printers and scanners), voice recorders, and other more specialist items such as braille readers.
Disabled Students Allowances (DSAs) are awarded to students when undertaking a course of higher education to help pay the extra costs they may incur because of a disability (including a long-term health condition, mental health condition or specific learning difficulty such as dyslexia). The allowances can cover the cost of items of specialist equipment, computers, software, and training, DSA suppliers currently provide a range of other equipment such as computer peripherals (printers and scanners), voice recorders, and other more specialist items such as Braille readers.
The successful bidder(s) will need to provide the goods and services on a national basis across England and
Wales, delivery will be to Student's place of residence, or other place of their choosing. Please note this Prior Information Notice covers the provision of assistive technology equipment and training funded by both Student Finance England (SFE) and Student Finance Wales (SFW).
The Student Loans Company are in final stages of developing the requirements for this framework and to this end would like to carry out further market engagement in order to refine our requirements prior to going out to tender. If you are interested in attending this pre-market engagement event, please complete the attached form and submit by the closing date included on the form.
