The valuation services covered by the framework will comprise the full range of services under the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors Valuation faculty.
The following information is applicable to all lots: ESPO has established a commercial trading company, ESPO Trading Limited, whose target clients are third sector organisations such as national and local charities, public sector mutual organisations and other organisations involved in the delivery of services to or for the public sector.
