Carlisle Support Services has been awarded a place on ESPO Framework (347_18 – Security Services) to provide security operations.

 

Service Sub-Lot A of this national framework incorporates a range of security services including key holding, unlocking/locking up services, static guarding, mobile patrolling and escort duties.

 

ESPO is a customer-focused, public sector-owned professional buying organisation established in 1981.

 

It practices procurement, sourcing, supply chain partner support and management, contract management and EU compliance.

 

It is jointly owned by its six member authorities: Leicestershire County Council, Lincolnshire County Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Norfolk County Council, Warwickshire County Council and Peterborough City Council.

 

The fact that the ESPO framework is EU-compliant means that organisations “do not have to complete a costly and timely tender exercise”.
