Ryden appointed to Crown Commercial Service Framework

13th September 2017

Commercial property consultant Ryden has been appointed as a supplier on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) Estates Professional Services (EPS) Framework in Scotland.

This is the first time the CCS has created regional frameworks across the UK for estates services. The new frameworks will improve the accessibility of public sector contracts for SME suppliers. Public sector organisations, including local government, health, education and emergency services, will gain an easier route to procuring the services of local commercial property experts.

Ryden has been awarded a place on the Scotland regional Lot of the framework following a competitive tender process. Ryden has also maintained its position on the National EPS Framework as a member of the Regional Agent Partnership (RAP) led by Sanderson Weatherall.

Ryden is headquartered in Scotland and offers a full range of advisory services for commercial property and development land. Projects previously secured by Ryden through the national EPS Framework include the disposal of the City of Glasgow College sites, development of the Murray Royal Hospital site and project management and agency advice on the Dundee Waterfront development.

Mark Robertson, Partner at Ryden, said “The launch of regional Estates Professional Services framework by the CCS is very welcome and we are delighted to have won a place on the Scottish regional Lot.

Employing local professional services firms through CCS will help public sector organisations reduce their property overheads, dispose of unwanted assets, and identify opportunities to make savings and generate income from their estate. It also helps speed up the process of securing advisors by avoiding a cumbersome full tendering process.”
