The procurement body represents a host of London Borough’s and many councils in the home counties.
Under the scheme contractors will sign up to a long term qualifying agreement that allows social housing providers to call off work without contravening Official Journal of the European Union tendering rules.
Managing director Peter Woolliscroft said: “Collectively our members look after over 300,000 homes – that is a massive responsibility for the quality of life of the residents in these homes.”
He added that so far over half Cyntra’s members had completed their Decent Homes Programme ahead of time and delivered saving of 15%.
The 4-year framework is being broken into six lots covering the full scope of works expected in the next generation of post-Decent Homes improvements.
These include asbestos removal, general building work, electrical services, gas appliance maintenance, heating and plumbing.
Cyntra expects to appoint up to five firms to each of the lots allowing for contracts to be called off from the list as jobs come up.
Interested specialist contractors have until 10 January to submit PQQs. More details are available from Peter Woolliscroft or the e-sourcing portal: https://cyntra.bravosolution.co.uk
Cyntra’s current membership is concentrated in London, contractors should note that future members may be located in Bedfordshire, Hertfordshire, Essex, Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Inner London, Surrey, East and West Sussex and Kent. Accordingly, call off contracts may be issued throughout those areas.
