Established in 2013, Pagabo is a framework organisation that makes public sector procurement quicker, simpler and more effective. Operating nationally from central Hull, the company provides UK-wide public sector organisations with EU compliant framework agreements, a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) and bespoke consultancy – all delivered and backed up by a team led by qualified procurement professionals. Pagabo frameworks connect buyers to a wide range of works, services and goods.

 

The second generation of the framework features 77 suppliers split over 18 service-specific lots in seven geographical regions, and will fun for four years beginning in April 2020.

 

Place Partnership has been appointed to two lots on the framework and can now offer services for delivery of asset and estate management services, and town and master planning for projects in the Midlands, South West, and Wales.

 

By securing the places on the framework, Place Partnership has undergone a rigorous OJEU-compliant tender process and has demonstrated both a robust financial position and relevant experience.  All applicants also needed to demonstrate a passion for social value and technology, ensuring that they are forward-thinking and conscious of their responsibility to deliver back to the communities in which they operate.

 

Place Partnership provides a suite of facilities and property management services to public- and private-sector clients, including local authorities, schools, and the police, fire and healthcare services.

 

Andrew Pollard, managing director, says:

"We are exceptionally pleased to have been successful in our applications to these frameworks.  There is a strong synergy between our business and Pagabo, particularly around the emphasis that we both place on understanding and delivering social value.

 

"We have a clear focus and understanding of the value that can be derived to an organisation – be that in the public or private sector, through ensuring the resilience and maintenance of its physical environment and infrastructure.

 

"We have delivered significant services and savings to our clients in the Midlands and are of course looking forward to the opportunities that this framework will present in enabling us to work in new geographies."

 

Simon Toplass, Pagabo chief executive, adds:

"We have a strong, ongoing commitment to supporting SMEs and providing them with relevant opportunities, and we would like to welcome Place Partnership as one of almost 40 SMEs appointed across the framework. As well as demonstrating its excellence across its specialisms, Place Partnership demonstrated both a clear passion for monitoring and measuring social value.

 

"We were thrilled to receive an outstanding number of responses to the tender for this second iteration of the framework. It was a hugely competitive process with well over 200 individual providers applying for the available lots."
