Fire Safety framework

Fire Safety Framework launched

We are delighted to announce that our new Fire Safety framework has now launched.

The new framework is a renewal of our existing fire related services offering; however we have updated, improved and expanded the services now available in relation to the fire safety of premises and people within.

The framework provides for the design, supply, install, certification and maintenance of fire alarm systems, sprinkler systems, water mist systems, dry and wet risers, fire compartmentalisation, emergency lighting systems and fire fighting equipment; as well as the provision of fire risk assessments, fire safety training and consultancy.

Rachel Wheeler, Senior Procurement and Contracts Officer said: “We listened to our members and saw the need to expand the current fire safety offering and to support our members in procuring their fire safety requirements in an easy, open and transparent way. I believe this new framework will be of a great benefit to our members, offering them a choice of quality suppliers to enable them to comply with the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order, as well as providing value for money.”

The new framework allows for both direct award and further competition call-offs. This means that should you wish to directly contract with one of the suppliers on the new framework (from our product catalogue or for Fire Risk Assessments, Training, or Consultancy) you will simply need to establish an overarching contract with the supplier and then you are free to order directly with them.

Alternatively, should you wish to test the market against your own bespoke requirements, Consortium Procurement can facilitate a further competition with the framework suppliers to ensure best service and value for your organisation.

For further information please contact your dedicated account executive, or email
