Efficiency North, a procurement specialist based in the Yorkshire and Humber region, is looking for contractors to join a new installers framework agreement covering social housing upgrade work that could be worth up to £360M.

 

The four year ‘next generation’ framework will replace Efficiency North’s current EN Procure Elemental Works arrangement which ends in November 2015. The closing date for this procurement is 10 November at 5pm.

 

A variety of housing provider needs will be serviced by the new framework. These include kitchen and bathroom installation, heating and ventilation, electrical installation, brickwork and masonry, renewable heating and ventilation, roofing, general building works, painting, estates improvements, external works, adaptations, solar photovoltaic installations, fire precaution works, and whole house improvement works.

 

An OJEU Prior Information Notice has been issued through the Procure Plus website to alert the market of its intention to procure and enter into a framework agreement with multiple organisations for the installation and repair works. Together with Procure Plus (PP), EN form the Re:allies partnership, a strategic collaboration between two housing consortia.

 

The framework has been structured to allow all sizes of firms to take part across a mass of lots.

 

Efficiency North Ltd Chief Executive Lee Parkinson said: “I very much hope that contractors of all sizes will embrace the opportunity to win a place on the framework as we have done all that we can to streamline the framework procurement process whilst maintaining the high standards we expect from our framework contractors.”

 

EN describes itself as a collaboration of social housing providers which procures collaboratively in the construction markets in order to deliver sustainable savings and regeneration in the member’s communities.
