Procurement organisation and social enterprise Fusion21 has launched its national Workplace & Facilities Framework – worth up to £1.1 billion over a four-year period and is now inviting bids from interested suppliers.
Designed to meet the facilities management needs of a wide range of public sector organisations in the housing, blue light, central government, education, health and local authority sectors, the framework is closely aligned with market requirements.
As Fusion21’s first ever £1billion plus framework, opportunities are available for both large organisations and SME’s. Lots 1 and 2 are multi-sourcing options that allow the appointment of a service provider to deliver multiple services (bundled or TFM) incorporating elements of physical asset management, service management and process management. Lots 3 to 6 offer individual services and will allow interested suppliers to bid for lots specific to their capability. The full lot structure includes:
Lot 1 – FM Principal Contractor
Lot 2 – FM Managing Agent
Lot 3 – Cleaning & Washroom Services
Lot 4 – Security Services
Lot 5 – Waste Management
Lot 6 – Building Engineering Services (M&E)
Providing geographical coverage across the UK, suppliers can bid for the lots suited to their delivery models and areas of technical expertise. The framework includes flexible call-off processes with options for both Direct Awards and Further Competitions.
Peter Francis, Director of Operations at Fusion21 said: “Set for launch in February 2021, this framework has been developed in response to market demand – reflecting feedback provided from both our members and the supply chain. It marks the next stage in developing Fusion21’s FM offer which has grown from strength to strength over recent years.”
Applications are welcome from those organisations that meet the criteria set out in the tender documentation now available on the Delta e-Sourcing Portal.
The submission deadline is Wednesday 9th December 2020 at 12 noon.
