This framework will be used to procure security services across Homes England sites.

Any organisation or consortium, can apply to be a supplier if they can deliver all of the required services across the relevant geographical area lot(s). Those considering submitting a tender should look carefully at the scope of services.

Individual call-off contracts will either be via direct award or further competition.

The overall value of the framework is estimated to be GBP 10 million.
