The Estates Professional Services framework (RM3816) could save money for public sector bodies such as local councils, NHS trusts, schools, the emergency services and housing associations.
The framework would enable organisations to buy advice, guidance and associated services to help them to manage their estates and assets, reduce property costs, release unwanted property assets and identify savings and opportunities to generate income from land and buildings.
It is projected that £430m will be spent through the framework over the next four years.

- 71 new council homes to be built in Wandsworth
- Over 100 estates to receive £32m regeneration boost
The CCS has engaged with more than 120 suppliers about the agreement and more than a third (35%) of the businesses supplying the new agreement are SMEs.
The agreement will complement other CCS property frameworks, including project management and full design team services, facilities management and construction.
The framework offers a range of services and provides access to vertical real estate suppliers and a managed procurement offering.
A CCS spokesperson said more SMEs have won places to supply estates services to the public sector than ever before.
It also offers a flexible pricing model and options available to customers, such as incentivised, gainshare, hourly/daily rates and lump sum.
