Opportunity to tender – Framework of mentors

We are now offering an opportunity to tender for our Framework of Mentors for Community Assets in Scotland. The Framework Agreement required as part of the Invitation to Tender is in an appendix.

You can read full terms and conditions in the Invitation to Tender but here are some essentials you will need to know to take this forward.

AIC impression-1 120813What is the role of the capital mentors?

The capital mentors will support groups applying to Big Lottery Fund to purchase and develop community assets.  The mentors will help turn ideas into reality by providing support at all stages including preparation of design briefs, appointing contractors and site surveys.  Just like in the pictures, a drawing and idea concept can become a real asset for that community.
