EPH Frameworks - Home page

Welcome to EPH

The role of the Hub is to provide strategic and operational procurement support, advice and guidance that adds demonstrable value to the procurement process to its members. 

The Hub lets and manages a number of National Framework agreements that are accessible to any UK Public Authority. 

Each Hub member has an allocated lead contact with a regular presence at their location. These provide both strategic and operational support. They have lots of experience in multiple areas of procurement and work together to make the best use of this pool of knowledge. 

Benefits to Hub members include; cost savings through the use of the Hub’s Framework agreements, increased opportunities for collaboration, an onsite procurement presence and business risk mitigation.

The Procurement Bill, currently passing through Parliament, will make it easier for businesses to enter public sector supply-chains and this will benefit Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and Voluntary, Community and Social Enterprises (VCSEs).

The UK Government have issued some guidance which sets out the Benefits for Prospective Suppliers to the Public Sector.
