espo national framework

We’ve been awarded a position on ESPO’s national framework!

December 14, 2018

At Foremost Security, achieving high standards and delivering outstanding service is something we always strive for.

That’s why we’re proud and delighted to announce that as a result of our focus on quality, we’ve been named on the ESPO framework 347_ 18 – Security Services.

About the ESPO national frameworks

As a leading public sector procurement organisation, ESPO has a wide catalogue of 25,000 products and services organised into a network of 120 national frameworks, including framework 347_18 – Security Services which we’re now listed on.

These frameworks also include banking, advertising, and even catering. Around £1billion is spent through ESPO each year, and so being awarded a position on one of the national frameworks is some achievement!

How we were awarded our position

Like all of the businesses listed on their respective frameworks, in order to be awarded our position on framework 347_18 – Security Services, we had to undertake an extensive tender process. This took into account everything from our processes through to our accreditations from leading regulators, like the Security Industry Association.

And of course, one of the main focuses of this process examined the safety and quality of our services, such as keyholding and guarding. With over 20 years’ experience in providing security services and personnel, we’ve also worked to form trust with our customers, another key attribute in the ESPO tender process.

Our Managing Director Paul Ritchie says:
“Having our tender for the ESPO framework accepted is a major achievement for Foremost. Every member of our team has a passion for delivering a quality security service and working with our customers to build trust. Having our tender accepted is a credit to the hard work and dedication that everyone puts into the business.”

What a place on 347_18 – Security Services means

Being awarded this position is a testament to the whole team here at Foremost. Not only does this recognise the quality of the security solutions our customers receive, but it also illustrates the quality of service they receive as well.

As a result, we’re now looking ahead to the future and being able to expand even further into the East Midlands by being in a strong position to be appointed on a direct call-off basis or via further competitions on public sector security projects.

It’s definitely a huge achievement for our team and their expertise! We’re immensely proud of everyone who has been at the heart of developing our services and the staff who have delivered these with outstanding compliments coming back in return.
