A member owned procurement and asset management consortium, delivering efficiencies and social value for its members.
CHIC is a collaborative, not for profit, member owned and governed consortium that delivers compliant procurement solutions and commercial support to our members in partnership with the supply chain. We secure savings for our members and are committed to the delivery of improved environmental outcomes and added social value through all that we do.
CHIC recovers its costs through transaction fees, generally included within contractor, consultant or supplier prices. CHIC claims these direct from the supply chain, so members just pay the contract cost. Fees are set reflecting the level of service required and the annual contract value. Fees range from 0.5% to 4% (6% for legal services).
The larger the value of the contract or project, then the lower the fee.
CHIC’s managed services offer great value to enhance savings, but if members only want framework access, we adjust fees accordingly.
CHIC’s management services are provided by a dedicated team under a service contract with ARK Consultancy Limited.
The contract was procured by CHIC through a Restricted Procedure public procurement process and performance is monitored by CHIC’s Board of Directors.
