Lot 1: FM Principal Contractor.
Lot 2: FM Managing Agent.
Lot 3: Cleaning & Washroom Services.
Lot 4: Security Services.
Lot 5: Waste Management.

Providing geographical coverage across the UK, suppliers can bid for the lots suited to their delivery models and areas of technical expertise. The framework includes flexible call-off processes with options for both Direct Awards and Further Competitions.
Peter Francis, director of operations at Fusion21 said: “Set for launch in February 2021, this framework has been developed in response to market demand – reflecting feedback provided from both our members and the supply chain. It marks the next stage in developing Fusion21’s FM offer which has grown from strength to strength over recent years.”
