Fusion21 announces its first £1.1bn workplace and facilities framework
Huyton-based Procurement organisation and social enterprise Fusion21 has announced the launch of its national Workplace & Facilities Framework – worth up to £1.1bn 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 £1bn-plus framework, opportunities are available for both large organisations and SMEs.
Lots one and two 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 three to six offer individual services and will allow interested suppliers to bid for lots specific to their capability. The full lot structure includes: Lot one – FM Principal Contractor; Lot two – FM Managing Agent; Lot three – Cleaning & Washroom Services; Lot four – Security Services; Lot five – Waste Management; Lot six – 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.
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.”
Fusion21 specialises in providing compliant procurement solutions for the built environment to the public sector.
To date the organisation has saved its members more than £225m through the procurement process, created 6,500 jobs and generated more than £80m of social impact.
