09:00 - 10:30 on Thursday 18 November 2021


NHS Procurement in Partnership and Avison Young are pleased to invite you to a free webinar.

This session will focus on the Analysis and Reconciliation Framework (Lot 5 – Estates) which has provided a quick, efficient and legally compliant procurement route to trusted cost mitigation and property specialists, realising savings in excess of £63 million in 2019/2020 alone.

This invaluable framework is available to our member organisations as well as non-members. Many of the services provided operate on a ‘no win-no fee’ contingency basis.

​Property experts from Avison Young will provide insight on how to:

  • Save millions of pounds through the forensic review of the core spend on your property assets
  • Mitigate property outgoings and disputes with tenants as well as trust obligations in relation to service charges
  • Contain occupational property costs and how cost containment strategies are evolving through the recovery and growth phase
  • Maximise space utilisation whilst controlling facilities management spend. Exploring the tools and processes to capture how space is used, understand new world requirements, and identify opportunities to repurpose space whilst ensuring FM cost control


Please join us live from 9am on Thursday 18th November to hear from our experts and ask questions to help better understand ​​​how this framework can benefit your organisation.
