Public sector frameworks
Public sector bodies face a unique set of challenges when delivering projects and programmes for the communities they serve. Squeezed budgets, tight deadlines and an ever-evolving environment – to name but a few.
Managed frameworks can provide the answer; allowing flexibility, adaptability and resilience to programme and project delivery. Rapid procurement through a framework delivers timely, value-driven projects to the benefit of the end-users of the places and buildings they create.
Collaboration is at the heart of our approach. We work collaboratively with our supply chain partners, combining our collective expertise and working with our clients to achieve maximum value from the frameworks we’re on. We have forged long-standing client relationships, with mutual benefits for improved performance, faster procurement and greater cost efficiency.
