Pagabo that works as the National framework provider announced that the latest framework is live now. This was actually revealed on April 14, 2021 and said it will go into action sometime soon.
The framework associated with National Utilities Supply announced is categorized into three lots and will run for four years. This will help enable compliant electricity, gas and water supply contracts nationwide for public sector bodies as a compliant procurement route.
Lots 1 and 2 will be under NPower which focuses on the supply of mains electricity and natural gas respectively. A range of supply contracts will be available from one year upwards.
Lot 1: A range of electricity supply contracts are available, including half-hourly and non-half hourly metered supplies, fixed, flexible, part fixed, and basket purchasing contract options. It also includes supply mixes including green, renewable energy and CCL exempt supplies.
Lot 2: It offers supply contracts including all meter types, fixed, flexible, part fixed, and basket purchasing contract options. It also comprises different supply mixes including renewable and biogas.
Lot 3: This will be covered by Water Plus and will allow client organisations to access water supply and sewerage services. Again, a range of supply contract durations will be available from one year upwards.
The National Utilities Supply Framework will help clients to decarbonise their services through working with both Npower and Water Plus. This will indeed be possible by reducing their carbon footprint in order to meet net zero carbon legislation by 2050.
Use of green fuels along with improved usage monitoring to identify ways of reducing a client’s consumption of energy and water will help achieve the goals. All supply contracts offer client organisations the benefits of direct access to an account manager, and access to an online portal.
