Can a subcontractor also be the EPAO?
We have been asked by an employer-provider if we, as a subcontractor (one of 3) to them, can apply to be the End Point Assessment Organisation for the standard we are delivering part of (as a subcontractor). We are on the EPAO register for other standards and are aware of the requirements around conflict of interest and no staff involved in delivery can be involved in the EPA etc. I am struggling to understand in the subcontracting guidance if we are breaching any rules becoming an EPAO for the employer-provider if we are being subcontracted to? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
