The work will mainly cover properties in the social housing sector over the next four years,

The framework is structured geographically in six lots by sub-region and will be open for the use of social landlords and other public sector bodies based within the Yorkshire and Humber region.

Each sub regional lot is then divided into the specialisms of asbestos surveying, removal and air testing.

The single stage open procedure tender process will be hosted on the regional YorTender procurement portal

The Contracting Authority reference number is SLHD13/009EN.

The OJEU reference number is 2013-047589.

The deadline for submitting tenders online is 12 noon Monday 20th May 2013 and the framework will be available from July 2013.

Lee Parkinson, Director of Efficiency North said: “This is great news for social housing in the region.

“Our members need a one-stop-shop for asbestos related services at an affordable price, which this framework will deliver.

“We are keen to solicit offers from the market from organisations of all sizes and strongly encourage all specialist asbestos service providers to participate in the procurement process.” Construction Enquirer.
