The Home Office did not receive compliant bids for the Asylum Accommodation and Support Contracts (AASC) for the following two regions:
- North East, Yorkshire & Humber (NEYH), and
- Northern Ireland (NI).
We are now in the process of re-competing these two regions under a linked but separate procurement and this is currently out to market. We remain confident of having fully operational contracts before the expiry of the current COMPASS contracts, with sufficient time to properly transition the services.
