3.6 Scheme Delivery

At the time of inspection, contract management of ESP’s is provided by

consultants and delivered by contractors. (Contractors appointed under
a current Apex Framework). Following discussions with the Property

Procurement Manager it was noted that the Consultant framework had
expired in October 2015. In the interim, the Association intends to

procure consultants on a scheme-by-scheme basis, which would

include any specialist surveys. Such surveys would include Asbestos,
Ecology, Flood risk, and planning. It is understood that as part of a

partnership with 4 other Associations (known as HA5) they will be able
to procure a new framework.
