Fire Suppression Systems Launched by Procurement Organisation
Procurement organisation Fusion21 has announced the launch of its national dynamic purchasing system (DPS) for Fire Suppression Systems and Associated Works - the first on the market to provide a complete fire safety solution suitable for the education sector and all public sector buildings.
Worth up to £150 million over a five year period, there are three specialised lots to select from: Lot 1: Management of the Design, Supply, Installation and Maintenance of Fire Suppression Systems & Fire Safety Works (worth £100 million); Lot 2: Design, Supply, Installation and Maintenance of Sprinkler Systems (worth £30 million) and Lot 3: Design, Supply, Installation and Maintenance of Water Mist & Associated Systems (worth £20 million).
The purchasing system has been commissioned in response to feedback from Fusion21 members and will remain open for new suppliers throughout its duration – creating a more competitive environment and ensuring members always have access to the best fire safety services and expertise on the market.
Using this approach members will secure greater efficiency savings and value for money, whilst accessing a procurement route that has the flexibility to respond to any future changes in legislation or within the wider marketplace.
Now available on the mytenders web portal – www.mytenders.co.uk – the DPS can be found under Notice ID DEC149518
Nick Verburg, Procurement and Supply Chain Manager at Fusion21 said: “We’ve seen an increased demand from our members to procure fire safety measures, as the country remains focused on ensuring all properties and buildings meet correct fire safety standards.
“This DPS builds upon our already established fire safety offer so members will soon be able to access additional fire safety works, delivering best value fire suppression systems and other elements of fire safety works as part of this package.
The application process is focused solely on experience and capability to ensure only specialist suppliers are appointed.
Fusion21 welcomes applications from interested organisations that meet the criteria set out in the tender documentation. To discuss this DPS further registered providers or suppliers can contact Nick Verburg on 0845 308 2321.
Providing fully compliant procurement frameworks for property, construction and the built environment in addition to community regeneration services, Fusion21 prides itself on making a real impact – whether that’s on bottom-line cost savings for the public sector, or seeing a local community begin to thrive.
Active nationwide, the firm has delivered savings worth more than £147 million for its members and won awards for our achievements in procurement and social value.
