It is intended to meet the diverse requirements of local authorities and other public bodies offering a wide variety of vehicles, including cars, LCVs, passenger transport vehicles, and specialist vehicles such refuse collection vehicles and sweepers.

The framework agreement has been established by the Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) and provides a simple, flexible and EU compliant solution for the self-drive hire of a comprehensive range of vehicles on a short to medium term basis, to include associated services that may be required.

The framework is intended to meet the diverse requirements of local authorities and other organisations operating a wide variety of vehicles, including cars, LCVs, LGVs, passenger transport vehicles and specialist vehicles (such refuse collection vehicles and sweepers). It is also intended to offer the opportunity (via further competitions) for bespoke solutions and improved rates to be provided for individual customers to meet their specific vehicle requirements, operating needs and priorities. The framework also allows for the possibility for single-supplier managed services (Master Vendor or Car Club) solutions to be created if this is the preferred option. This page is intended to provide you with an overview of what is available.
