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.
