It is intended that once on the framework, individual project awards will be based on a mini tender mechanism, future awards dependent upon performance measured against KPI’s. Home will reserve the right to externally benchmark the framework. Home will reserve the right to re-enter the market place for large joint ventures or projects where a bespoke or specialist solution is required. Home will reserve the right to make a direct appointment from the framework where a bespoke or specialist solution is required.

Home Group (on behalf of itself and potentially other bodies listed below) is seeking to set up this framework under which eligible bodies can procure services. The scope of projects may vary and will cover North East England, Yorkshire, Cumbria, Scotland, London, South East England and South West England.

Note: to register an interest and obtain a SQ or for further information please visit www.housingprocurement.com and register as a supplier.

It is Home Group's preference that all prospective bidders utilise our e- tendering portal to download and submit all documentation within the tender. This portal can be found at: www.housingprocurement.com

Prospective bidders must log onto the site and register as a supplier. Instructions and help are available from the homepage. Once interest has been registered, Home Group is able to issue the SQ document to prospective bidders accordingly. The completed document must then be submitted back to the portal; instructions included within the SQ document detailing how to achieve this. Queries from bidders can also be raised within the portal by utilising the Q&A facility where they will be answered, allowing total transparency to all other participating bidders. Home Group is acting as a central purchasing body on behalf of itself and potentially a range of contracting authorities who will be able to access this framework.

Eligible bodies include:

— Home Group and any existing or future subsidiary companies (see www.homegroup.org.uk for more information on the Group),

— other Registered Providers in England (providers registered with the Homes and Communities Agency, see www.homesandcommunities.co.uk) and Social Landlords in Scotland (providers registered with the Scottish Housing Regulator, see www.scottishhousingregulator.gov.uk),

— Charitable Organisations registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales (see www.charitycommission.gov.uk) or the Office of the Scottish Charity Regulator (see www.oscr.org.uk) whose charitable purposes include, but not are limited to, the prevention or relief of poverty; the advancement of education,

— the advancement of health or saving of lives,

— the advancement of citizenship or community development,

— the relief of those in need, by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage, and

— any other purposes currently recognised as charitable and any new charitable purposes which are similar to another charitable purpose, and

— social enterprises involved in the provision of housing related services/activities or whose activities are similar to those listed above in respect of charitable organisations.

Home Group is underway with an initiative to develop a suite of standard house types and designs for the majority of new build development activity. Framework Architects may be expected to utilise these standard designs within schemes for which they have been appointed. Home Group reserves the right to seek more favourable fee levels based on repetitive design.
