Efficient procurement, tailored to your needs
CHIC’s team is comprised of asset management and development professionals as well as procurement specialists. We understand the pressures which project delivery can put on project clients. We therefore provide a fully managed service, supporting our members through the entire procurement process.
Compliant route to market
Our services are underpinned by a range of frameworks, a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) and long term contracts. Our frameworks are unranked, meaning our members are able to direct award to a framework partner, following submission of a business case to justify the selection.
Comprehensive supply chain partners
CHIC offers a dynamic suite of suppliers, providing members with a marketplace from which to buy and deliver services, ensuring cost and time efficient procurement. This is fully managed by an in house supply chain support team.
Helping our members bridge the gap between strategic thinking and operational delivery
Membership is free and available to any public sector organisation or charity. Current members include housing associations, local authorities and members from the health and education sectors. Each member is supported by a regional member lead.
We offer a comprehensive selection of services, across asset management and development programmes. This includes a full suite of contractor and supply chain solutions for affordable housing landlords and other public sector bodies.
A better way to help manage your procurement activities, the new CHIC eSourcing portal will oversee all procurement processes and provide real time reporting and an audit trail.
