Harrow Green strikes moving deal with supplier YPO

16 June 2016 | Herpreet Kaur Grewal

Harrow Green has signed a two-year framework contract with YPO.


YPO was established over 40 years ago by local government authorities to help combine their procurement demands and achieve efficiency savings. YPO supplies products and services, and is 100 per cent publicly owned.


The Removal Solution framework, which went live on 16 February 2016, means that Harrow Green will act as a single provider managing the provision of services relating to removals, storage, specialist disposal and associated services and trades, all of which can be accessed free of charge by public sector organisations across the UK.


Harrow Green will collaborate with the public sector to develop a local supply base and economy through engagement with ‘tier two’ local suppliers, and will act as a single point of contact between each participating contracting authority and its supply chain.


Some of the benefits for the users of the service include: social value benefits through the use of local subcontractors; access to specialist project management services; access to specialist removal services; support of environmental objectives; provision of full audit trail and reporting service to contracting authorities; access to secure off-site storage; and secure disposal of IT equipment and confidential data.


Harrow Green’s contract could be extended by a further two years.  


Nigel Dews, managing director of Harrow Green, said: “This is a significant contract and we look forward to developing a very strong relationship with YPO and contracting authorities. We will be working closely with them to manage and deliver an efficient, high-quality service.”
