Eastern Procurement today launched its new £65M, combined Property Improvements, Repairs and Maintenance Framework for public procurement clients.
This Framework provides a one stop shop for kitchen and bathroom upgrades, rewires, repointing, fire prevention works, major projects, void improvement and responsive repairs.
Six contractors including, SMEs, sizable regional and national contractors secured places on the new Framework.
“It’s great to see businesses with different structures and arrangements achieve success with EP. I think we are unique in having large and small private sector businesses represented alongside others that are wholly owned by public and third sectors.” Steve Tyree MD, Eastern Procurement.
With a significant focus upon quality, performance and service, the chosen contractors each offer their own solutions to achieve quality and cost. We have an impressive range of options available to our selective clients.
Clients will enjoy improved flexibility in this Framework with new facilities to undertake planned and responsive work through one simple solution, should they so wish.
Better still we have secured improvements in price over our previous Frameworks, including significant savings in bathroom installations and rewires, as well as quality and performance improvements in a number of areas including an improved electrical specification, for example.
The Framework is better for contractors and clients alike. A secure pipeline from key members means this is a meaningful opportunity for the chosen contractors and our commitment to client led specifications, transparent pricing and supply and fit solutions, means easier management for our customers.
The Framework is available to public sector organisations in England, Wales and Scotland.
New for 2020
In addition to our more attractive large-single-client programmes, we have worked with our smaller members to bring together a multi-client programme of improvement works. This multi-client opportunity, to be let via mini-competition this year, will commit a long-term pipeline of secure and continuous work. It is hoped that this will become our new modus-operandi for smaller client improvement works, providing security of tenure for contractors and their employees, a sound basis for training and investment, leading to further improved quality and performance for clients and residents.
There’s still time for new client participants to join this multi-organisation mini-competition and expressions of interest are welcomed from member and non-member organisations.
