Procurement policy

Homes England makes sure that the procurement of works, supplies and services allows us to meet our business requirements. These range from works associated with bringing land or property to the market and consultancy across a wide range of disciplines.

We make procurement decisions at a regional level, with our corporate procurement office providing advice to those regions if it’s needed. Our procurement process is developed with a focus on environmental sustainability. When shortlisting external suppliers and awarding contracts we consider environmental sustainability. For some opportunities sustainability is a key part of the specifications and evaluation criteria.

We work in line with government equality and diversity policies. If a procurement has specific diversity requirements these can be included as part of the final award decision.

Standard terms and conditions

Larger value and sector specific contracts will be used and clearly established at the relevant stage of each procurement. For minor and low value procurements of services and supplies, standard terms and conditions (based on those established by the Crown Commercial Service) will apply.

For more information on our standard terms and conditions, read our standard terms and conditions for services and supplies.

Technical panels

We manage a number of technical consultancy panels, which may be made available to local authorities, registered providers and other Homes England partners. The services provided range from ecology and environmental sustainability to construction and project management.

See Homes England technical panels for more details, including how potential service providers can be part of the panels.
