Vital’s Framework Value Passes The £11 Billion Mark

It’s been a busy period for Vital Energi’s work-winning teams and the last three months have seen us win eight lots across seven frameworks with a combined value of over £3.5 billion.  This sees the total combined value of frameworks we sit on pass the £12.5 billion mark.

The frameworks we have been added to in December, January & February include:

  • Procure Plus– Low and Zero Carbon Technologies £195m
  • Procure Plus– Low and Zero Carbon Technologies £1.53bn
  • Procurement for Housing Scotland EESSH2 Framework - £100m
  • ETL – Energy Performance Contracting Framework – £500
  • Go Neutral Smart Energy Framework Agreement - £160m
  • Scotland Excel Energy Efficiency £800m
  • Fusion 21 Decarbonisation Energy Efficiency Framework £250m
  • Scottish Water Horizons £13.5m

Vital Energi were our NDEE contractor for both our NDEE Baskets, installing Energy Conservation Measures into 26 properties of various sizes, usage and availability. The NDEE contracts were a new way of working for both of us and it was obvious from the outset that its success would be dependent on working together. Vital Energi fully support this approach and were very sensitive not only to the needs of the contract but what was required to support the users of the properties. They showed high level of respect to the occupiers, implement changes and additions at short notice and ensure their Health, Safety and Welfare at all times. This respect extended to their own employees, sub-contractors and Council staff. Their commitment to our "Community Benefits" requirements resulted in universal gratitude from the recipients

The quality of the bid was very high, we didn’t receive many submissions to compare it to but the level of detail in terms of upfront energy assessments was very good and better than any of the others. Other bids made assumptions on generic energy saving figures. Vital measured and quantified everything based on actual data. The bid was clear and concise, I don’t think it could have been improved, it was a strong bid and very professional.

Gemma Dyson, Proposals Manager explains, “We want to be able to help the widest range of organisations on their journey to net zero and this means we have to sit on a wide-range of frameworks to have access to bid on these projects. Frameworks also provide a vehicle for our clients to procure work quickly, as and when funding becomes available. The frameworks market has grown significantly in recent years and I think it’s a demonstration of the growth of the sector, and Vital Energi in particular, that we now sit on 28 frameworks and 11 dynamic purchasing systems.

“Whilst the value of the frameworks is impressive, the variety of technologies, sectors and specialisms we cover should be noted as it’s a great indicator of how we have grown our capabilities, knowledge and skills base over the last few years.”
