Our energy frameworks recommended by DfE

Our energy frameworks recommended by DfE

By Kerry Walker, Category Buyer for Energy

Our electricity and gas frameworks have been selected by The Schools Commercial Team (SCT) part of the Department for Education as suitable for schools to buy their energy contracts. All suppliers on the frameworks have been assessed for compliance with procurement regulations, ease of use, suitability and value for money.

We have a single supplier for both our gas and electricity frameworks - Npower for electricity and Corona Energy for gas. These reputable national energy providers make sure customers benefit from dedicated account managers, market-leading low management fees and the certainty of secure supply.

Our frameworks offer customers a fixed rate deal for those needing budget certainty and a range of tariff options including, flexible, green and bespoke contract solutions to ensure long term customer satisfaction.

The SCT gathers feedback from schools already using the frameworks and continues to review and add to the list of recommended deals.

YPO’s Energy Category Manager Adam Throup says, “We’re proud that these frameworks have been recognised by the DfE. When we undertake the procurement process for our energy requirements a core driver is to make sure that our customers benefit from best value, service and long term stability.”
