Established to support public sector bodies to procure contract partners, the framework is divided across 11 geographical regions in England and Wales.
Running alongside PPF’s existing national contractor frameworks, Waterman has been selected to provide Structural Engineering, MEP Design, Sustainability & Environmental, Civil & Highways Engineering to public sector bodies across nine out of the 11 regions.
Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships Framework Director, said in a recent statement: “This agreement has been two years in the making and it now allows the Procure Partnerships Framework to offer a one stop shop of both professional services and contractor appointments to our public sector clients. The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices, offering both Direct Award and Further Competition project call offs.”
“We were extremely impressed with the quality of tenders received and delighted with the calibre of suppliers that we now have locked into our four-year agreement. The breadth of public sector delivery experience across our supplier partners is impressive and we are excited to work with and support them.”
Waterman’s Director Barry Dobbins said: “We are very pleased to have been accepted on so many lots covering the majority of England. The 4-year framework has the potential to offer us many opportunities in public sector work and we hope to capitalise on this to achieve further growth across all engineering disciplines in Waterman.”
