“The NOE CPC framework provided a compliant route to market for the full scope of Linen and Laundry services required by the Trust. Imran was able to bring his knowledge of the market to the project, including lessons learned from similar procurements which proved extremely useful. Charlotte was both professional and helpful in supporting the Trust throughout the further competition process and I look forward to hopefully working with them both again in the future”.
