Watford Community Housing ("WCH") sought Tenders from suitably skilled and experienced suppliers for the provision of vehicles and associated flexible fleet services under this four-year, single supplier framework.

This framework seeks to offer the benefits of a flexible vehicle hire solution that can react to legislative and other operating context changes, incorporating the flexibility of a rental model whilst competing with the total cost of ownership of a fixed-term contract hire/lease arrangement. The framework will provide additional services to support the fleet operation including but not limited to the provision of fleet and accident management services and additional relevant services, for example fuel cards.

The framework is to operate across the UK and will be open to all UK public sector bodies to access via a Joining Agreement between WCH, the Supplier and Pretium Frameworks Ltd, who WCH has appointed to administer the framework on its behalf.
