Driving efficiency on public sector contracts

As part of its appointment to the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) Contractors Framework, ISG brought together its teams and design partners to drive forward its vision for projects delivered through the new structure. 

ISG was awarded five places on the medium value band of the ESFA construction framework, which covers projects valued from £4.5 million to £12 million, at the end of last year. 

The four-year framework, for use by the agency, academies, local authorities, dioceses and educational establishments, is aimed at individual projects and programme of works for new build and refurbishment.

It covers Priority School Building Programme works, academies, university technical colleges and free schools.

ISG has secured places on the London, South East, South West, East of England and East Midlands regional lots.

To kick off the new framework, ISG held an event for a number of its design partners to continue its learning and consider how it can bring its tech-led approach to public sector schemes.
We specifically tackled standardisation of components and creating a process to improve customer experience and drive efficiencies.  

Zoe Price, ISG’s group director for public sector frameworks, said: “Our public sector clients are under increasing pressure to prove value for money across their projects, and as part of our appointment to the new ESFA framework, we were keen to discover how we can deliver real value for our education projects. 

“As we continue to work with the ESFA and our partners, I have no doubt that our delivery dynamic will put us at the cutting edge of public sector project delivery.”
