The purpose of this framework agreement is to deliver an efficient and compliant route to market for members, by minimising the resource and providing value for money.

The scope of Lot 1 included the provision and associated services of fire extinguishers, fire blankets, storage, first aid equipment, door furniture, escape equipment, signage and wireless alarms. Lot 2 covers the provision of fire safety training and fire risk assessments.

It was awarded on 24th February 2020 and runs to 23rd February 2022 with a possible extension to 23rd February 2024.

Key Benefits of this Framework

  1. Compliant With OJEU Public Contract Regulations 2015 - Users with a fire safety requirement with a total value in excess of the OJEU threshold (£189,330 for supplies and services as of 1st January 2020) can be assured that this framework is fully compliant with all relevant regulations
  2. Full compliance with all relevant legislation and technical standards - All framework contractors are compliant with the principal pieces of legislation which govern fire safety in the UK:-

    • England & Wales - The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005
    • Scotland - The Fire (Scotland) Act 2005 & The Fire Safety (Scotland) Reglations 2006
    • Northern Ireland - The Fire and Rescue Services (Northern Ireland) Order 2006 & The Fire Safety Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2010

    Furthermore, all goods, works and services supplied to users will be delivered in accordance with all relevant British, European and international Standards for fire safety systems or products.

  3. Technical guidance and support of experts - Users of this framework may lack the in-house expertise or technical skill to determine the most appropriate fire safety system options for their institution. Users of this framework will therfore benefit from the technical support and guidance of industry experts with a proven track record of delivering economical and robust solutions for the education sector
  4. BAFE Accredited Contractors - All contractors appointed to the framework have been accredited to carry out fire safety system works by BAFE, an independent registration body (accredited by the government body UKAS) for third party certified fire protection companies across the UK. BAFE develops schemes to support quality standards for fire protection companies to achieve and become third party accredited. This independently acknowledges their competency to provide specific fire protection services. The framework contractors are also fully compliant with all relevant UK fire legislation and standards.
  5. Safeguarding and DBS - All framework contractors have been assessed and evaluated in terms of their approach to safeguarding. The framework contractors understand the importance of delivering high quality and safety driven services, whilst recognising their duty of care to protect customers (students, staff and the general public) and employees from foreseeable risks associated with working on site
  6. Regional Sub-Lotting - Social Value - The framework has been sub-lotted by region for a number of reasons. Breaking down frameworks into distinct smaller regions gives better opportunities to SME's and will ensure that the social value benefits generated from a project are retained within the region. Equally working with locally based contractors allows for a more quality driven and responsive service from framework contractors.
  7. Support and assistance from NEUPC Contract Manager - Users of this framework will be supported and assisted by a dedicated contract manager to resolve any queries and issues that arise during the course of the agreement.
  8. Buyers Guide - A Buyers Guide is available for all institutions to view. This includes details of the framework, awarded suppliers and call off options for members.
