Our National Framework Partnership

 

Empowering public sector organisations with high-quality procurement solutions

Procurement can be a daunting, lengthy and resource-intensive process and it is particularly important for public sector organisations to be able to procure efficiently and responsibly.

Behind our work sits a passion and determination to empower public sector organisations to focus on their core work by making procurement easy.

Supported by our highly-experienced team, our 90+ frameworks offer a network of nearly 200 trusted partners, removing the need for long-winded, wasteful procurement processes.

We’re backed by Hyde, one of the biggest housing associations in the UK, and this gives us a powerful combination of economies of scale and social purpose.

Our original construction, design and build frameworks have grown to cover a wide range of sectors. Clients can procure a huge variety of services, ranging from £10,000 to £30m, by following our unique and simple four-step process.
