Technical and Property Frameworks

Homes England maintains a number of technical framework panels to help with the delivery of its programmes.

These panels are available for use free of charge by a number of other public sector bodies.

The Frameworks have been procured through fully compliant Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) processes, and offer a quick and efficient means to procure high quality, good value development related technical services, such as property and project management, engineering, planning, and multidisciplinary services.

Over recent years, our Frameworks have been used by around 300 partners to deliver development related services. Users have reported significant savings in procurement time.

Selection of panels

Framework firms are sourced through competitive tender processes at regular intervals, usually every four years. The Framework tender process is subject to the Homes England procurement policy. Re-tendering of Frameworks is advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Prospective Framework members are advised to use the search facility via the OJEU Tenders Electronic Daily website or subscribe to a tender search company specialising in this field.

No unsolicited information

Potential suppliers and consultants are requested to refrain from sending unsolicited details of their goods, services and skills to Homes England, as we are unable to retain this information.
