EN:Procure, the procurement arm of social housing consortium Efficiency North has opened the bidding for the next iteration of its Installation and Repairs Framework, valued at over £3.2 billion.
Consisting of 37 lots covering a wide range of installations and repairs including electrical, heating, roofing and brickwork, the framework will be available for social housing projects across Yorkshire and Humber, the East Midlands and the North West.
The framework will be 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.
The current version of the framework has delivered more than £272 million of repairs, maintenance and installation since it was launched in 2019, and £2 million was gifted to members to fund social value initiatives, with £1.5 million being gifted through EN:Able Communities since 2015.
Lee Parkinson, chief executive at EN:Procure, said: “Following on from the success of the current version of the framework over the past four years, we’re looking forward to welcoming bids to tender for this upcoming iteration, especially with it being one of the first to be procured with our latest generation of framework agreements.
“As well as delivering a great service for those that use the framework to procure installation and repairs works, the successful applicants will also need to match Efficiency North’s commitment to training and skill development, including the use of apprenticeships.”
EN:Procure has supported social housing landlord members to deliver nearly £1 billion of works through its frameworks and DPSs since 2014.
