FUSION21 is launching a new national framework for energy efficiency valued at £250 million over four years.
The procurement organisation and social enterprises says its latest framework is specifically designed to meet the needs of the public sector – including housing associations and local authorities.
The framework offers external and internal wall insulation; the design, maintenance and installation of domestic and non-domestic solar photovoltaic systems; battery storage and solar carparks; plus cladding replacement; electric vehicle charging points; and LED lighting.
Split into seven lots, the framework provides regional coverage and will facilitate local delivery. It has been structured to enable suppliers – including SMEs and specialist contractors – to bid for works suited to their capability, experience and expertise.
“In response to market and member feedback, we’ve developed this flexible procurement solution to help Fusion21 members achieve energy efficiency outcomes – including reduced carbon emissions and increased cost savings,” said Peter Francis, Fusion21’s director of operation.
“These benefits contribute to supporting the government’s decarbonisation agenda and will also positively impact upon the carbon footprint of organisations, the wider environment and residents living in domestic properties.
“Offering flexible call-off options, organisations calling off this compliant framework will gain access to support from technical procurement experts, social value delivery tailored to organisational priorities and a rigorously accessed and experienced supply chain.”
Organisations interested in being considered for a place on the framework can find the criteria they need to meet set out in the documentation available on the mytenders web portal – www.mytenders.co.uk – under Notice ID OCT158433.
The submission deadline is Wednesday 27th November 2019 at 12 noon.
