For this framework, social value was assessed as part of the award criteria allowing social value benefits to be obtained.
  • Dependable suppliers: Whether you’re looking for consultations on property and environment or health and social care, we know that putting your trust in a supplier can be a difficult decision. Suppliers on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability - so rest assured you are receiving the highest of standards.
