Runcorn-based housing group Procurement for All is establishing a four-year panel of contractors which could contain up to 70 companies.
PfA is a buying tool for 11 housing associations around the country with 90,000 houses collectively. Members in the North West include New Fylde Housing.
The framework could be worth up to £150m over the course of the agreement and will cover maintenance and replacement of kitchens and bathrooms, windows and doors, central heating, as well as general building work
Consultants Pennington and Arcus are advising PfA.
