Housing Maintenance & Repair

Summary

The Wider public sector and central government can buy a range of housing repair and maintenance services for both tenanted and void (empty) properties.

Description

We are developing a new Dynamic purchasing system (DPS) to provide a range of services such as:

  • planned maintenance on both tenanted and empty properties
  • responsive repairs
  • essential compliance services (fire safety, electrical testing and asbestos management)
  • whole home retrofit: carrying out property improvements to make sure it is as energy efficient as possible while helping to achieve Net Zero Goals with PAS 2030/35 certified suppliers
  • housing portfolio management

This DPS is available to all UK and central government departments, wider public sector organisations and charities. We welcome input from wider public sector organisations and central government departments managing housing stock. This can include homes owned by:

  • registered providers of social housing
  • NHS
  • universities (student accommodation)
  • local authorities
  • care sector

Benefits

  • access a range of housing repair and maintenance services from within a single agreement
  • by allowing suppliers to onboard at any time, this DPS overcomes section 20 legislation constraints
  • has the flexibility to support government’s current and future carbon net zero objectives by offering whole home retrofit services

Service types

This DPS is split into 6 main service types. These are:

  • planned maintenance works
  • reactive and emergency maintenance 
  • whole home retrofit: to support government carbon net zero policies
  • compliance: services to make sure the property is compliant and includes electrical and gas testing, asbestos removal, water and fire safety
  • management services for void (empty) or vacant properties such as security, electrical services and groundworks
  • housing portfolio management
