To support the change in the demand from its Membership, Procurement For All has created a new Procurement and Contracts Manager role. The role will support all Framework procurement, mini competitions and ongoing contract management support for our 21 members, who collectively procure £40m of works and services a year through our 10 national OJEU Framework Agreements.
Keith Armstrong, Managing Director comments: ‘This is a time of great change in our sector. Like many of our Members we have had to change the way we deliver services and one of the areas we could support Members more was with contract management support. The extra support will be at no extra cost to Members. Through a recruitment process, we have promoted Martin Ellicott into the role. I am looking forward to working closely with Martin to develop our service offer tailored to our growing membership needs.’
‘I am delighted to be taking up my new role. Having worked in the housing sector for many years, I have a great understanding of Members’ needs and a clear indication of the pressures the social housing sector is currently facing.’
Martin Ellicott has worked at Procurement For All for nearly 12 months, and has been promoted into the role. He is MCIPS qualified, and has worked for other consortia in social housing. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience of delivering national Framework Agreements and bespoke mini competitions.
In addition to the national OJEU Framework Agreements, Procurement For All delivers bespoke procurement projects and free procurement health checks for all public sector organisations.
