PROCUREMENT NEWS Public sector can save £35 million on estates through new CCS framework

The cost of managing public sector estates could be significantly reduced thanks to a new framework created by the Crown Commercial Service (CCS)

The Crown Commercial Service has introduced a new framework agreement which replaces the previous agreement (RM928). The new Estates Professional Services (RM3816) Framework Agreement will provide  a ‘one stop shop’ solution for professional property related services through the provision of services at the right cost.

Public sector bodies including schools, NHS Trusts, local authorities, housing associations and the emergency services could save around £35 million over the next four years.

How the savings can be achieved

The savings can be achieved by organisations being able to use the framework to purchase advice and services to help them better manage their assets and estates.  This includes guidance on releasing unwanted property assets, and identifying new ways to save and generate income from land and buildings.
