The fourth-generation framework is broken down into 36 work lots covering in Yorkshire and the Humber, the East Midlands and the north west.

Around 85% of the firms picked are small and medium enterprises covering a wide range of social housing repairs and installation work including electrical, heating, roofing and brickwork.

More than £272m of repairs, maintenance and installation work has been delivered by the current version of the framework since its launch in 2019.

Emma Mottram, director of operations at EN:Procure, said: “We wanted to give as many businesses as possible the chance to take part and the tenders were of an extremely high standard.

“This has been one of the first iterations to be procured with our latest generation of framework agreements. The Gen4 frameworks will provide a higher level of transparency and underline the power of collaboration.

“It will also pave the way for the social housing sector to achieve decarbonisation targets and improve sustainability.”

EN:Procure has supported social housing landlord members to deliver nearly £1bn of works through its frameworks and DPSs since 2014.
