Estates Professional Services framework
The Estates Professional Services framework (RM3816) enables organisations to purchase help in managing their estates and assets through advice, guidance and associated services. This could help reduce property costs, release unwanted property assets, and the identify savings and opportunities for generating income from land and buildings.
The CCS estimates that the framework could save public sector bodies such as local councils, NHS trusts, schools, emergency services and housing associations around £35 million over the next four years. Over the course of the framework’s next four years, CCS expect spending of £430 million, with more than one-third of the businesses supplying the new agreement being SMEs.
For the first time, the framework provides access to vertical real estate suppliers, as well as a managed procurement offering. The framework also has a focus on regional expertise, prompted by more SMEs winning places to supply estates services to the public sector than ever before.
