The department is currently undergoing a re-procurement process in conjunction with Crown Commercial Services for the agency supply deal which is due to expire in August 2022. The re-procurement process will establish a list of suppliers for the next version of the agency supply deal. The review of the teaching agency supply deal will be released in due course. Once released, the expected initial duration of the framework will be three years with the option to extend for up to one year.

Further information about the framework, including the contract and timescale for the review of the teaching agency supply deal can be found here:
