The Consultancy Services (CS1) deal from public sector provider LHC Group will cover housing, fire safety and energy efficiency specialists across the country.
Dean Fazackerley, Head of Technical Procurement at LHC, said: “We recognise the importance of making frameworks more accessible to regional suppliers and SMEs to give them more opportunity to work with public sector organisations – CS1 looks to achieve that.
“Bringing housing construction consultancy, fire safety and energy efficiency under one roof allows us to meet client needs for projects of all sizes, reflecting the current market.
“It also means we can streamline the procurement process while offering a wider variety of high-quality, pre-approved expertise across a wide range of public sector buildings”
Consultancies can now register their interest for the framework which will be opening for applications in the summer.
LHC intends to hold further engagement webinars with interested parties to discuss initial proposals and gain feedback, before finalising the framework and issuing the tender.
