New Deal providers are required to meet stringent quality and delivery standards as set out in contract specifications. They are subject to contract management and monitoring by trained procurement staff. Jobcentre Plus contract management processes are based on monthly analysis of management information, performance management, quality assessment and customer satisfaction feedback. In addition, independent inspections and audits are undertaken by the Adult Learning Inspectorate.

New Deal providers will no longer be inspected by The Adult Learning Inspectorate(ALI) from 1st April 2007 as the duties of the ALI are being taken over by Ofsted and the ALI will cease to exist. The remit for inspecting New Deal providers will then become Ofsted's responsibility.
