The new Cirrus Consortium Materials Framework is now live

We are delighted to announce that the Cirrus Consortium Materials Framework 5 is now live and available for use by all contracting authorities across England, Scotland and Wales.

This latest iteration provides contracting authorities quick and easy access to a selection of 15 leading suppliers and will run side by side with our current highly successful Materials Framework 4 which expires in May 2020.

Following feedback from Consortium members and suppliers, we have introduced a Highways and civil materials lot and a Tool and plant hire lot to the framework.

We would like to welcome all new suppliers to the framework; we look forward to working with you.

The framework covers the full range of materials required by consortium members, split across the following lots:

Lot 1: General building materials, including paint and tools
Lot 2: Plumbing and heating materials, including gas spares and renewables
Lot 3: Electrical materials
Lot 4: Highways and civil materials
Lot 5: Managed stores
Lot 6: Tool and plant hire

The framework is fully compliant with all applicable public procurement legislation and is free for contracting authorities to access, with no consortium joining fees, or ongoing management fees.

Call-off contracts can continue to be awarded under the current framework until May 2020 and will remain fully compliant with the Public Contracts Regulations for their full duration.

For further information on the Cirrus Consortium frameworks, or the suppliers available under each framework, please visit our frameworks page or contact us directly.
