PROCUREMENT organisation Fusion21 has launched its national Building & Asset Improvement Works Framework – worth up to £250 million over a four-year period.
The framework is specifically designed to meet the needs of all public sector members – including housing associations and local authorities – Fusion21 says. It offers a range of internal and external improvement works from the installation of kitchens and bathrooms to fire doors, communal entrance doors, roofing and electrical works.
Providing regional coverage, the framework will facilitate local service delivery — with streamlined procurement processes in place to open doors to SME organisations.
Fusion21 members will also have the option to commission multi-trade internal and external works suited to combined programmes or smaller scale projects.
Peter Francis, director of operations at Fusion21, said: “Set for launch in November, members accessing this compliant procurement solution will benefit from increased collaboration with local SMEs, flexible call-off processes and greater efficiency savings — in addition to generating social value outcomes that are tailored to organisational priorities and make a real impact in communities.
“Developed in response to member and market demand, this framework complements our Construction Works & Improvements Framework – worth up to £800 million — which launched earlier this year to support the delivery of capital works programmes across the UK.
“We welcome applications from interested organisations that meet the criteria set out in the tender documentation now available on the mytenders web portal – http://www.mytenders.co.uk – under Notice ID AUG157932.”
The submission deadline is Friday 27th September 2019 at 12 noon.
Fusion21 provides fully compliant procurement services to the public sector and is committed to making a difference in communities across the UK. To date the firm says it has saved its members more than £225 million through the procurement process, created more than 6,000 jobs and generated £82 million of social value.
