Avison Young named as supplier on £500m Crown Commercial Service’s Estate Management Services (EMS) frameworkAugust 17, 2021
Strategic real estate advisor among four firms securing places on all available lots.
The UK’s largest public procurement organisation, Crown Commercial Service (CCS), has named Avison Young among a total of 45 suppliers to its £500m Estate Management Services (RM6168) framework.
The four-year framework, used by all UK public sector bodies, is divided into seven lots spanning all aspects regarding property acquisitions, leasing, occupation and disposals, as well as providing surveys and strategic advice.
Avison Young was named as a supplier on all seven lots, which cover:
- Total estate management
- Estate (property) management
- Agency and lease management
- Surveying and strategic advice
- Valuations and compulsory purchase orders
- Business rating services
- Integrated workplace management
The new contracts take effect on 21 August. The model replaces CCS’s Estates Professional Services framework, which Avison Young - then GVA - was initially appointed to in 2008 (RM397) and subsequently reappointed to in 2013 (RM928) and 2017 (RM3816).
Jason Sibthorpe, Principal and UK President at Avison Young, said:
“This is a fantastic opportunity to provide the depth and breadth of our industry insight and service line expertise to support Crown Commercial Service. Our reappointment is testament to the standard of work we have been bringing to the table as a supplier on the framework for 13 years and further strengthens our position as a partner of choice across the public sector.
It is an honour to be part of a framework which also seeks to support objectives to level-up regions, drive the industry towards net zero carbon, and emphasise social value creation, which aligns closely with Avison Young’s purpose.”
CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21 CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
