The NHS SBS Modular Buildings Framework is a national framework, covering offsite building solutions for purchase, hire and lease. The Framework offers on average 5% savings when compared to purchasing solutions direct. It provides a fully EU compliant route for Public Sector Organisations to procure all types of construction projects.
Extraspace Solutions supported in bid writing by Purpol Marketing are delighted to successfully secure multiple places on this £700million NHS SBS Shared Services Framework.
Extraspace Solutions were awarded places on Lots 1, 2, 3, 4, 6 and 7, following a competitive OJEU process and can now offer a full range of turnkey solutions for a range of construction projects, not limited to Education, Healthcare and Commercial Projects.
NHS Shared Business Services (NHS SBS), which has already helped the NHS deliver £350 million of savings back into frontline care, said its new facilities management framework is the first to offer such a fully comprehensive range of services needed by the NHS and other public sector organisations, from both national suppliers and small to medium sized enterprises (SMEs).
Peter Akid, the Director of Procurement at NHS SBS said: “This framework is a real opportunity for the NHS and other organisations across the public sector to harness their buying power and to start realising considerable savings on widely used services immediately. Fully compliant with European procurement laws and offering virtually every service required in NHS and public sector estates, the facilities management framework really is a one stop shop for the public sector. It means procurement teams will no longer need to manage multiple frameworks or embark on costly and time-consuming local tendering.”
The Framework was launched on 18th January 2017 and is valid until 17th January 2019, with the option of a further 2-year extension.
