The Crown Commercial Services (CCS) has named 128 suppliers that have been chosen on a major procurement agreement, with a maximum potential of £30bn.
CCS has today revealed the 128 suppliers – including 57 small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) – on the procurement agreement. 31 of 38 sub-lots have been awarded.
The new procurement agreement was designed to ensure a level playing field for SMEs. There are lots for different contract values and regional lots open to local suppliers, to ensure that smaller companies can compete for places. Close to 99% of all providers in the construction industry are SMEs.
