Cash collection services

This framework ends September 2019. Due to low usage we do not plan to renew this framework nationally. However, term contracts can be let to run beyond September 2019.

There is an alternative agreement available including a Wales Lot with both G4s and Security Plus available through YPO. We anticipate this will be available until December 2019. We will continue to signpost to this agreement if it is renewed.

The solicitors framework ends 31 August 2019. We have recently started engagement with stakeholders and we are looking for public sector representatives to join our Category Focus Group (CFG).
