A total of 35 suppliers have been chosen to provide fuel for public sector organisations in the UK.
Small and medium sized businesses make up almost three quarters of the total number of suppliers on Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) new National Fuels Framework, expected to be worth around £850 million over four years.
Winners include Angus Biofuels, Certas Energy UK, Crown Oil, Forest Fuels, Highland Fuels and Wessex Petroleum.
The framework supports central government and the wider public sector to procure heating oil and fuel for motor vehicles as well as marine and aviation fuel, liquid petroleum gas, solid fuel, biomass and lubricants and greases.
It is expected to save public sector bodies around £5.3 million over four years.
In 2016/17, more than 200 million litres of fuel worth £169 million was procured through the previous Liquid Fuels Framework. CCS says the new agreement has a wider scope with more fuel types and extra, supporting services on offer for the first time.
Sam Ulyatt, Strategic Category Commercial Director said: “CCS is excited to announce a new framework for the whole UK public sector that aligns policy and delivery and truly delivers value.”
