The Environment Agency aims to create better “places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development”.
It is an executive non-departmental public body which is funded by the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs (Defra).
The latest hub arrangement by the Environment Agency has combined 30 previous deals and frameworks that cover a wide range of services. These included procurement framework opportunities for small-scale civil engineering and maintenance companies that will be able to provide their services for main river maintenance and pest control projects.
