Appointing us

We work across the public and private sector and recognise, in particular, that our public sector clients need to demonstrate best value and open competition whilst minimising the cost and time taken to procure effectively.

We have secured a place on a number of established OJEU-compliant public sector-facing frameworks. These frameworks provide a range of flexible and robust procurement routes making it quicker and cheaper for our clients across the full breadth of the public sector to procure our services.

They have all been tendered in the open market, with rates, procurement processes and terms & conditions that give you the certainty that your approach is sound.

A selection of our current framework solutions is provided below.

To appoint us across the private or the public sector, please feel free to contact us to discuss how we can best demonstrate our capability and expertise to meet your project requirements.
