West Sussex County Council is in a preparatory phase for the procurement of its £75 million scheme to upgrade social housing stock through the government’s Green Deal.
The authority is asking for contractors to come forward for a market consultation on the maintenance and repair services required for the Green Deal scheme.
The consultation, being run through Capita Business Services is designed to help form a “procurement strategy” for the estimated £75 million, three-year first phase of the proposed framework.
The works notice said: “Green Deal is an innovative scheme led by the government to allow households, landlords and businesses to invest in energy saving measures for their properties, without having to pay cash up front.
“West Sussex County Council wants to develop a scheme to offer the Green Deal to residents and potentially businesses. We have analysed the energy efficiency requirements of all West Sussex residential properties and see Green Deal as the first step in an even more significant programme for these properties in the county.”
