Specialist Vehicles

Framework 215
Status: Active

This ESPO framework provides a quick, simple and competitive route to the outright purchase of a wide range of specialist vehicles.

Please note that whilst this framework is due to lapse as of 31/05/20, a renewed framework is in the process of being arranged and will be available after this date. Any questions with regard to this then please do not hesitate to use the contact details listed.

This ESPO framework provides a quick, simple and competitive route to the outright purchase of a wide range of specialist vehicles. This includes refuse collection vehicles, road and precinct sweepers, gritter vehicles, gully emptiers, customised vehicles (eg. mobile libraries), minibuses, buses and coaches, chassis’, tippers, hot boxes, hook loaders, skip loaders and fire & rescue vehicles. All of the suppliers on this framework have been selected for their experience and ability to provide customers with the aforementioned vehicle types.    

The framework is intended to meet the diverse requirements of local authorities and other eligible organisations that operate such vehicles. The call-off options of either direct award or further competition are available.       

(Please note that this framework is not intended to include the hire/leasing of vehicles, which is covered by frameworks 218 and 271).

The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Local Authority Councils
  • Educational Establishments (including Academies)
  • Central Government Departments and Agencies and Local Government Departments and Agencies
  • Police, Fire & Rescue and Coastguard Emergency Services
  • NHS & HSC Bodies including Ambulance Services
  • Registered Charities
  • Registered Social Landlords
  • Any Public Body established by or under the Scotland Act 1998 or any Act of the Scottish Parliament

What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • Direct award call-off option. The framework is enabled so as to allow for direct award or further competition.  A direct award would produce time and cost savings by not utilising a further competition process.         
  • Quick and easy to use. This framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • Suppliers.  Those listed on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability.
  • What you see is what you pay. There are no additional charges.
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions. No need to worry about what terms and conditions to use as they’ve been pre-agreed under the framework and will underpin all orders.
