Recom wins place on new public sector framework

A Salford Quays-based company has won a place on a major new framework which will see it provide project management consultancy services to the public sector over the next four years.

Recom Solutions has been appointed to the Construction Consultancy Services Framework launched this month by NHS Shared Business Services.

NHS SBS says the framework is expected to save the public sector around £16m over its duration. It will run until the end of March 2022.

Its previous framework, which ran from 2014, delivered savings of over £12m compared with the cost of buying direct. Last year alone, more than 300 organisations procured construction consultancy services via the framework.

Project management consultancy services will be used on new-build and refurbishment schemes at hospitals, GP surgeries and other healthcare sites, as well as central and local government departments, housing associations, the emergency services, schools, universities and colleges, museums and prisons.

Recom director Jason McKnight, pictured, said: “We are delighted to win a place on the new NHS SBS framework for project management services.

“This supports our business focus on developing our public sector contracts and provides a platform from which clients can procure services from us.

“We already provide project management services to a number of NHS trusts, universities and city councils, so this framework strengthens our profile and offering to new customers.

“With a track record of delivering a personal and flexible service, placing the customer at the centre of everything we do, we look forward to a successful four years working with the team at NHS SBS and our clients.”

Phil Davies, NHS SBS acting procurement director, said: “The framework enables clients from the NHS and other public sector organisations to commission construction consultancy services in a simple, streamlined and cost-effective manner.

“The major benefit is the breadth and depth of suppliers we work with, including many smaller suppliers that public organisations may otherwise struggle to identify. The new framework builds on this strength with many additional suppliers added in response to demand in key areas.

“The result is a robust framework that meets the needs of all kinds of public sector bodies, saving them time and effort, delivering excellent results and – crucially – generating considerable cost savings for the public purse.”
