SMEs strongly represented on new fuels framework
Small businesses could help to power the public sector like never before through a new framework agreement.
SMEs make up almost three quarters of the total number of suppliers on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) new National Fuels framework, expected to be worth around £850 million.
The framework supports central government and the wider public sector to procure heating oil and fuel for motor vehicles as well as marine and aviation fuel, Liquid Petroleum Gas, solid fuel, biomass and lubricants and greases.
The new framework has 34 suppliers, with 24 (71%) of them SMEs. It is expected to save public sector bodies £5.3m over 4 years.
SMEs awarded places on the framework are based across the UK, including Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales, the North West of England, London, Leicestershire and Hampshire.
Sam Ulyatt, Strategic Category Commercial Director said:
CCS is excited to announce a new framework for the whole UK public sector that aligns policy and delivery and truly delivers value.
How it works
In 2016/7 over 200 million litres of fuel worth £169 million was procured through the previous Liquid Fuels framework.
The new agreement has a wider scope with more fuel types and extra, supporting services on offer for the first time.
- Lot 1 Liquid Fuels - subdivided into 14 regional lot groups.
- Lot 2 Liquefied Gas
- Lot 3 Solid Fuel and Biomass
- Lot 4 Greases, Lubricants and Antifreeze
