Estates Maintenance and Engineering Services (Hard FM) relate to the physical part of the building and cannot be removed. They are the ‘essentials’ and ensure the safety and welfare of employees.
NOE CPC’s framework provides a compliant route to market and gives access to a wide range of specialist services, with suppliers having knowledge and experience of working in the healthcare environment.

This unique framework offers the NHS access to a large number of truly specialist maintenance services providers. There are considerable geographical strengths to this agreement with a large proportion of SME's and locally based suppliers. Please click on the supplier tab to see more.

Appointed suppliers on the framework can support Contracting Authorities to address maintenance backlogs, set Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) programmes to reduce breakdown of equipment, increase operational efficiencies and meet statutory compliance.
The agreement has been packaged together in Lots for the specialist functions within the Hard FM service areas, with suppliers demonstrating their abilities through membership of professional bodies and experience of working in the healthcare environment with Health Technical Memoranda (HTM).

  • Services can be procured in individual Lots split into specialism areas, which allows contracting authorities to appoint the specialists within the industry rather than through a managed service
  • By being able to appoint through individual Lots, the control of managing the service provider remains with the Contracting Authority which allows for better contract management and gives the ability to work more closely to drive innovation and cost management
  • The Technical Specification for each Lot gives details of what the statutory requirements for each of the specialist areas are, which can be used to build the trust’s services specification
  • The framework caters for all needs. Where there is a need for a managed service, the framework offers contracting authorities to bundle Lots 1-14 and any other additional Hard FM provision through the Managed Services lot
  • The framework offers Contracting Authorities the option to add KPI’s to measure and drive performance for the services being delivered
  • The framework has been structured to encourage the use of SME’s and Micro Enterprises, many of them local to the member organisations. Encouraging the participation of SME’s and Micro Enterprises encourages new entrants to the market
  • The framework gives Contracting Authorities the option of both direct award and further competition
  • The participating authority shall also be entitled, at its sole discretion, to select another form of special conditions of contract. Examples include, but are not limited to: JCT, NEC and others
  • Some suppliers offering discounts on 12 month direct awards.

NOE CPC supported Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council under Lot 5 of the Hard FM framework for fire alarm, emergency lighting and fire fighting equipment.

NOE CPC’s framework was straightforward and easy to use with all information and data accessible, the fileshare area was really useful enabling us to access the documents we needed quickly as and when.
The support from Imran was invaluable, always on hand and available for questions and queries, plus very knowledgeable. Imran and the FM Team supported us through the process with their market knowledge and expertise. It was a very easy, quick and efficient process.

Jane Aldous, Procurement Officer, Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council

NOE CPC supported Bradford Teaching Hospitals to appoint a provider under Lot 12 of the Estates Maintenance and Engineering Services framework for fire risk assessments.

"I would definitely recommend NOE CPC to other trusts. They have always provided a reliable service and the teams are very knowledgeable about their categories.

They are always available to support us with any issues we encounter, guidance on procurement matters and we have benefitted hugely from working with NOE CPC."
