Experience delivering across all public sub-sectors
Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships Framework director, said: “This agreement has been two years in the making and it now allows the Procure Partnerships Framework to offer a one stop shop of both professional services and contractor appointments to our public sector clients.
“The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices, offering both Direct Award and Further Competition project call-offs.”
Blackhurst added: “We were extremally impressed with the quality of tenders received and delighted with the calibre of suppliers that we now have locked into our four-year agreement.
“The breadth of public sector delivery experience across our supplier partners is impressive and we are excited to work with and support them.
“It was important to us that our supplier partners have demonstrable experience of delivering across all public sub-sectors.
“This attracted 20% of the total evaluation which has meant that we have suppliers who have outstanding experience of delivering education, heart care, leisure, and blue light projects within their specific allotted geographies.”
