New Syllabus

Unusually, I'm a bit lost for words -  but I've just discovered a new document, posted on the OCR website yesterday.

http://www.ocr.org.uk/Images/152108-cpc-syllabus-student-and-tutor-guide.pdf

At the very least, I expect confirmation from OCR that this new syllabus will not be the basis for the exams being held in just over a fortnight's time.

Mike,

Quite common in the industry, when a contract exists for provision of a particular service and the tendering body requires an additional service to be provided, which does not form part of the main contract, they will issue a tender for that 'non contracted ' service as a separate provision.

Hope that helps

Thanks, "nationwide".  Surely though that additional service will itself become the subject of a contract in due course.  Tendering is after all just a formal method for deciding who will be contracted to run a journey.  The wording suggested to me that there might be tendering without contracting.

I now understand the intention behind the phrase but I think it could have been better put.

It's taken me some time to comb through to identify the changed clauses.  I'm sure it would have been helpful if they, rather than just the section reference numbers, had been shown in red.

To add to the above, I've since found a "Notice to Centres" which confirms that implementation will be from June.

Under item E14.4, I'm struggling to understand what "tenders for ... non contracted operations" are.  Can anyone help?
