This agreement will offer estates related professional services that can be used by central government departments and all other UK public sector bodies. It will replace the current agreement, RM3816 Estates Professional Services Framework which expires in August 2021.

The RM6168 Lotting structure  has been developed through extensive customer and supplier engagement and provides flexibility to support new ways of working, occupier wellbeing and modernisation of the government estate.

The agreement will provide further improvements on the existing EPS agreement such as:

  • providing customers with a broader range of suppliers enabling customers to aggregate or disaggregate requirements with market-leading specialists
  • lots aligned with service provision to provide a transparent commercial solution, with quality at the forefront
  • improved customer journey across consultancy-based services including an enhanced digital solution.
  • a greater focus on quality that will also allow customers to achieve their social value, environmental and modern slavery policies
  • introduction of a short-form call off contract and increased direct award capability to streamline procurement in a compliant way
