Administrative Court confirms the allocation decision for Professional and Preparatory modules – AcadeMedia is one step closer to signing contracts

The Administrative Court has announced that it rejects the applications for review of the Professional and Preparatory modules (“yrkes- och studieförberedande moduler, YSM”). The outcome of the procurement was announced in early July 2017. This means that AcadeMedia is one step closer to signing contracts with the National Employment Agency in the new contract area. The contract period is two years with option for another two years.

Provided that the decision is not appealed, the contract can earliest be signed in ten days.

AcadeMedia expect that the contract will run with a slightly lower turnover compared to the previous contract and at a lower price in line with prior information. On an annual basis, when the entire YSM has replaced the previous "basic modules" (“gundläggande moduler, GM”) agreement, it is still estimated that the entire Adult Segment's EBIT margin will decrease by one to three percentage points which also has been communicated earlier.
