This framework agreement for the supply, servicing, repair and refurbishment of fire extinguishers and associated fire fighting products was let from May 2009. In addition, there is a further Lot for the provision of ancillary training. This covers everything from fire risk assessment training and portable fire extinguisher recharging and maintenance courses to BS9999:2008 and Fire Safety in the Design of Buildings training.

The Framework has been set up to assist the public sector by offering a range of products and services from which they can ‘call-off’ to meet their individual needs and related Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (RRO) requirements which came into effect in October 2006.
Work was undertaken closely with West Sussex and Manchester Fire and Rescue Services and the MOD on this procurement. The framework has been designed with flexible terms and conditions so that we can upgrade it to include new and improved products as they come on the market (within the rules of the Public Contracts Regulations 2006.)
