EN:Procure Gen-4 installers framework launched

EN:Procure appoints 100 contractors to next generation framework for planned and responsive installation, repairs and maintenance works

EN:Procure is delighted to announce the appointment of 100 contractors onto its latest framework for planned and responsive installation, servicing, repairs and maintenance works, valued at more than £3.2bn. 

The winning contractors will carry out a wide range of social housing repairs and installation works including electrical, heating, roofing, brickwork, retrofit services and fire safety. Around 85% of the contractors are small and medium enterprises (SMEs), reflecting EN:Procure’s commitment to providing fair access to organisations of any size. 

The new framework was procured under EN:Procure’s latest Gen-4 generation of tenders, incorporating the FAC-1 Framework Agreement and dynamic models for ESG delivery, reflecting many of the themes in the government’s Constructing the Gold Standard report. It will provide a wide range of social, economic and environmental benefits for communities served by Efficiency North’s membership of social housing providers.

Emma Mottram, EN:Procure Director of Operations, said: “We’re excited to announce the successful bids for our latest framework process - it has been a big effort from everyone involved. We wanted to give as many businesses as possible the chance to take part and the tenders were of an extremely high standard.  Congratulations to all those appointed.

“The framework was structured to encourage SME engagement and so we are delighted that a large proportion of them are from that sector. We will be supporting them on their journey to delivering robust ESG targets.

“The successful applicants are keen to deliver outstanding installation and repairs works, while also matching Efficiency North’s commitment to training and skills development, including the use of apprenticeships.”

“This has been one of the first iterations to be procured with our latest generation of framework agreements. The Gen4 frameworks will provide a higher level of transparency and underline the power of collaboration.

“It will also pave the way for the social housing sector to achieve decarbonisation targets and improve sustainability.”

EN:Procure has supported social housing landlord members to deliver nearly £1bn of works through its frameworks and DPSs since 2014.
