Warrington based Procurement for Housing, the national procurement group for social housing, is drawing up a framework agreement for four years. Jobs will range in value from £400,000 to £10m and tenders may be submitted for one or more lots.
"The agreement is for use by, but not limited to, housing associations, councils, social landlords and other public-sector groups such as defence or education," said a spokeswoman for the client with over 750 members throughout the UK.
"The framework includes the provision of all services associated with the removal and treatment of Japanese knotweed and other invasive weeds including but not limited to surveys, inspection, treatment, removal and destruction."
The Procurement for Housing consortium aims to make savings by harnessing the collective purchasing power of housing groups. By reducing procurement costs, they can reinvest resources in front-line services.
The initial contract duration is three years with the option to extend for up to a further 12 months subject to satisfactory performance reviews and changes in the market. Email firstname.lastname@example.org by 16 October.
