Phoenix Community Housing – Member Benefit Statement

This benefit statement details all your activities with SEC over the past 12 months. We’ll look at procurement exercises ran, money saved and framework usage. Read on for more information about our 20-23 Strategic plan and what you can expect from us over the next year.  

2019-20 has been a great year for SEC. We’ve welcomed 6 new Members to the Consortium and have seen framework usage grow by 23%.  We’ve started to deliver a more enhanced service but there is much more to do. We realise we’re just scratching at the surface and have devised an ambitions 20-23 Strategic Plan that reflects this. It’s all about doing ‘more’ for our Members.

2019/20 Overview

So far in 19/20 we’ve run 126 procurement exercises with 77 in progress. According to our consultants, the average cost of a procurement exercise if ran in house is £20,000. On that basis we’ve saved our framework users £3.24m on procurement costs alone.

Over the last year, with the help of our Members, we’ve re-procured 4 of our biggest and most used frameworks – Access Control Systems, Lifts, Heating and Compliancy Management, and Internal & External Building Works. On top of this we’ve added the 16th framework to our list – Estate Cleaning Services

We’ve held 20 seminars and training events this year – including our Annual Conference. SEC2019 saw us move to a new and exciting location as we focused on getting our network ‘future ready.’ On the day we hosted 400 delegates and held 19 talks across two stages.

Thank you for your continued support this year and we look forward to working with you over the next 12 months.

The year ahead – doing more for Members

Our 2020-23 operational plan is about doing ‘more’ for our Members.

Over the last 3 years we’ve started to deliver a more enhanced service but there is much more to do. We realise we’re just scratching at the surface and there is a much bigger role for SEC to play in the sector.

20-23 will see us build on the foundations laid. You’ll see us continue to engage and create market leading framework models for our Members to benefit from.

Pre tender you’ll see more support with the creation of your technical documents. And, post procurement there will be effective framework management and support with how you administer the contract award.

By 2023 we’ll:

  • deliver a broader Membership offer thats easy to access
  • coach and equip our Members to achieve value
  • influence solutions for the sectors future
  • deliver tomorrows skills for our sector
