oAttract and retain a roster of climate experts made up of individual contractors and organisations. These roles must be advertised, and individuals or organisations selected fairly and openly, and then engaged, vetted and trained so they are ready to participate in UK PACT.
oDeploy the roster on “skill-shares” to build capacity of individuals and institutions in selected countries. We envisage these experts offering advice and support to their peers in developing countries. It will be critical for these skill-shares to be integrated with the rest of the programme effectively so that they are more than one-off exercises.
oSupport BEIS (primarily through the recruitment strategy) in embedding a select few “secondments” in key institutions in selected countries. We envisage secondees acting either as strategic programme managers – making sure UK PACT and other UK Government programmes are achieving their aims – or technical experts with specific climate-related skills. This task will be led by BEIS with some logistical support from the Lot 3 DP.

      II.2.4) Description of the procurement: vii.The Lot 3 DP will help BEIS to meet demand for climate expertise through generating a supply of UK-based experts to help other countries decarbonise. To do this, there are three main tasks:
oAttract and retain a roster of climate experts made up of individual contractors and organisations. These roles must be advertised, and individuals or organisations selected fairly and openly, and then engaged, vetted and trained so they are ready to participate in UK PACT.
oDeploy the roster on “skill-shares” to build capacity of individuals and institutions in selected countries. We envisage these experts offering advice and support to their peers in developing countries. It will be critical for these skill-shares to be integrated with the rest of the programme effectively so that they are more than one-off exercises.
oSupport BEIS (primarily through the recruitment strategy) in embedding a select few “secondments” in key institutions in selected countries. We envisage secondees acting either as strategic programme managers – making sure UK PACT and other UK Government programmes are achieving their aims – or technical experts with specific climate-related skills. This task will be led by BEIS with some logistical support from the Lot 3 DP.
