ESPO's Consultancy Services framework (664) has been extended

Due to its success, our Consultancy Services (664) framework has now been extended to 31 August 2025. It provides an efficient solution if you’re looking for trustworthy, expert advice on everything from food and catering, to public health and social care, to treasury management.

With an extensive list of service providers covering a wide range of categories, the framework has been organised into Lots as shown below. Each Lot is essentially a select list of service providers for that category, all with a proven track record of delivering consultancy services from whom customers may set up supply arrangements quickly and simply.

The framework offers additional flexibility under Lot 10 – Strategic Projects (accessible via further competition only), for customers seeking advice and support across a broad range of disciplines in relation to high value and/or complex, strategic projects. It is anticipated that such projects will require a combination of the consultancy services outlined under Lots 1-9 (accessible via direct award or further competition), although the scope of the requirement is not limited to these services.
