Section VI: Complementary information
Network Homes is one of England’s leading housing associations with over 40 years experience of developing and managing affordable homes to rent and buy. We believe that having a good home makes everything possible.
We own and manage over 20 000 homes across London and the South East, and work on the principle that we can and must do everything possible to meet the housing crisis. We aim to build around 1 000 homes a year across all tenures and we are working to achieve overall customer satisfaction of 90 %.
Network Homes prides itself on being a strong developer with an excellent reputation – we are one of just 7 housing associations in the country with “trusted partner” status from the Government’s Homes and Communities Agency.
We are a valued partner of public and private sector alike – from local authorities to top flight developers – and our passion for innovative design is reflected in the leading architects we commission.
Working with high calibre firms means we can not only create inspiring places to live, but exceed our customers’ expectations too. Our expertise in regeneration is in high demand and we are currently leading on 4 major projects involving over 2 000 homes. We have won 12 major development and customer service awards in the last 2 years.
We build, sell, rent and manage quality homes in thriving communities — we give people the key to all the possibilities that come with a good home.
The Contracting Authority considers that this contract may be suitable for economic operators that are Small or Medium Enterprises (SMEs). However, any selection of tenderers will be based solely on the criteria set out for the procurement.
Other Social Housing Providers in the UK (both those that are in existence now and those that may come into existence during the term of the Framework Agreement) may also be entitled to call-off contracts under the Framework Agreement. “Social Housing Provider” for this purpose means any provider of social housing and includes registered providers (as listed on the Gov.UK Website: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/current-registered-providers-of-social-housing), and may include local authorities and ALMO's. Applicants should note that, under the Framework Agreement, no organisation that is entitled to call-off shall be under any obligation to do so neither does the social housing provider in question have the automatic right to do so without direct permission from Network Homes Ltd.
Where other “Social Housing Providers” call-off contracts under this Framework Agreement, the value of the framework stipulated in II.2.6) may increase over its 4 year duration.
The estimated value of the framework is 4 000 000 GBP across both lots.
