Procurement organisation invites bids for £250 m Materials Supply and Associated Services Framework

Procurement organisation and social enterprise, Fusion21, has announced the renewal of its national Materials Supply and Associated Services Framework, worth up to £250 million over four years, and is inviting bids from interested suppliers providing regional or national coverage.

Designed to supply construction materials to housing providers and the wider public sector managing the delivery of repairs and maintenance works, the framework can accommodate multi-year contracts, and will provide access to all goods required throughout the property lifecycle. Fusion21 said: “Offering innovation in technology and service delivery solutions, and a new lot for ‘Adapted and Accessible Living’, the framework will assist members in achieving greater operational efficiencies, in addition to improving first-time fix performance.”

Split into six lots, the structure is:

  • Lot 1: General Building Materials.
  • Lot 2: Electrical.
  • Lot 3: Plumbing and Heating.
  • Lot 4: Managed Services.
  • Lot 5: Kitchens.
  • Lot 6: Adapted and Accessible Living.

Peter Francis, Group Executive director (Operations) at Fusion21 said: “In response to member and supplier feedback, our streamlined offer launches in September 2024, enabling the housing and wider public sector to manage built assets effectively, while enhancing business performance. The renewal of the framework includes both energy-efficient and NetZero products. Providing a compliant framework, the refreshed offer has a variety of cost models and flexible call-off options and – as with all of Fusion21’s frameworks – the Materials Supply and Associated Services Framework will help members deliver social value they can see in communities, aligned with their organisational priorities.”

Tender applications are welcome from interested organisations that meet the criteria set out in the tender documentation, now available on the Delta e-Sourcing Portal via the following link: https://hubs.li/Q02wm2190 The submission deadline is 10.00 am on 14 June.

To date, Fusion21 says it has saved its members over £343 m through the procurement process, created over 11,150 employment outcomes, and generated more than £165 m in social impact.
