Details

This national framework is for the supply of Personal Protective Equipment suitable for use by Specialist Police Personnel and Firefighters. The framework covers all types of PPE to be used by The Emergency Services and Blue Light such as Firefighters clothing, boots, helmets and Police clothing such as riot helmets, cut resistance gloves and body armour. This framework is a UK wide framework agreement that is available to any eligible UK public sector organisation, and can be used to procure garments and services both above and below the OJEU threshold.

 

Who can use the framework?

The framework agreement is available to all public sector bodies, including Emergency Services, central government and the wider public sector, social housing organisations, and voluntary and community sector bodies.



How can I use the framework?

Further competition. Customer are required to complete and return a signed YPO Access Agreement. Customers can then opt to run their own further competition or YPO can assist with this. Once the evaluation process has been completed and an award has been made, the call off will take place and customers will form a Call off Contract between themselves and the supplier.

  • Reduced timescales – Customers don’t need to run a full OJEU procurement through this framework as it has already been done by YPO. All you need to do is identify your requirements, present them to the market and award a contract. This also benefits suppliers as they only need to complete on OJEU procurement.

     

  • Ease of use – Simple to use with expert advice available from YPO.

 

  • Excellent choice of supplier – more details can be found on the supplier tab or the user guide

 

  • Legality – A fully legal framework in line with EU regulations

 

  • Assured supplier standards – Providers are ‘pre-qualified’ as to their general suitability, which means when buying services from them, customers are assured they can meet specified requirements

 

  • Aggregation of spend – customers will receive the benefits of an aggregated volume of spend and the benefits associated with an increased leverage on the market

 

  • Pre-defined terms and conditions – terms and conditions of the contract have already been established, and signed and accepted by suppliers.

  • Decontamination – Firefighter control measures
    Firefighters are exposed to many challenging situations and working environments with the potential to have long-term effects on their health. Regular cleaning of PPE kit not only maintains its lifelong protection levels from heat exposure, but also helps reduce long-term exposure to harmful toxins.
