Asylum: Housing
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, pursuant to the Answer of 26 March 2018 to Question 133797 on Asylum: Housing, which regions have not secured compliant bids under the tendering process for the new asylum accommodation contracts.
Answered by: Caroline Nokes

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.
