After completing a robust selection process, EVO has been selected to join the Social Housing Emerging Disruptors 3 Framework.
The Social Housing Emerging Disruptors (SHED) framework allows housing associations and councils to compliantly buy services from startups and micro-businesses, and it has appointed 21 suppliers.
The framework is worth up to £100m over three years.
This is the third year that procurement services provider, Procurement for Housing (PfH) has launched an emerging disruptors framework, and it partnered again with the Proptech Innovation Network to find the best fledging firms working in property technology.
The first SHED framework was set up in 2021 following demands from social landlords for innovative solutions to help them cope with competing pressures around fire safety, net zero, new build, and decent homes.
PfH have designed the SHED framework to overcome existing procurement barriers with simple, SME-friendly tender documentation, and a straightforward award process for social landlords.
It is aligned with the government’s National Procurement Strategy, which encourages public authorities to increase innovation, and the use of disruptive technologies throughout the supply chain.
Housing Digital Stakeholder EVO is a modern digital solution bringing convenience and transparency to the property maintenance sector for both tenants and landlords. EVO currently works with landlords, housing associations, and local authorities as part of its shared mission to support people’s access to decent quality housing.
