What we do
Our specialism is to design, create and maintain construction, property and estates related Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS), and Major Works Framework that are accessible to our public sector members.
By the public sector and for the public sector, our one-stop-shop of commercial procurement vehicles provide our members with a number of distinct benefits including instant access to suitably qualified and experienced Works Contractors, Suppliers and Consultants, supported by simplified and easy to use procurement processes that deliver value for money solutions for the UK tax payer.
We continually look at new ways to improve our services for our members and on offering greater opportunities to small and medium-sized enterprises as well as larger suppliers.
As a key infrastructure client in London and surrounding Home Counties we engage with our members, sharing pipeline information via Project Performance platform to shape the market, drive innovation, and invigorate and sustain a diverse portfolio of national, regional and local suppliers.
For Major Works, we have now increased our offering to support our Members with the running of their EOI processes and Soft Market Testing events online. While the wider industry has adapted to the challenges Covid-19 has brought, these types of online engagement events are extremely beneficial in helping members shape their procurements and work in partnership with contractors, minimising risk for both parties and maximising the success factors for the project.
Developing a competitive environment enables us to support effective supplier delivery to help ensure our members’ performance and affordability needs are met.
We pride ourselves in working towards high levels of member satisfaction by helping our members to:
- Deliver tangible targeted efficiency savings
- Reduce construction and external consultancy costs
- Deliver projects on time, within budget and to the required quality
- Reduce risk
- Support sustainability and drive innovation in construction
- Support the capture and implementation of central and local initiatives (e.g. Air Quality. SME’s and Social Value)
- Consolidated project and KPI platform
- Provide an in-depth brokering service between our Members and Suppliers to maximise responsive feedback and return on ROI .
In developing a one-stop-shop of commercial procurement vehicles such as the new major works framework and dynamic purchasing systems, we work with the construction market place within London and surrounding Home Counties, public sector organisations and the National Association of Construction Frameworks to measure and improve performance and best practice in Construction fully compliant with Public Contract Regulations.
