Public Sector Energy Procurement

Compliant energy solutions designed to power the public sector

Public Sector Procurement

Our OJEU/FTS compliant procurement framework

Trident’s OJEU/FTS procurement framework provides public sector organisations with a compliant route to the procurement and supply of electricity and gas. The framework has several supplier choices and contract options. Resulting in lower energy costs through increased competition and the ability to adopt a procurement strategy that meets your specific needs.

Every supplier approved to the energy framework operates to a service level agreement that includes sanctions for poor performance. Trident monitor performance levels, which result in fewer billing errors, faster handling of queries, and improved communication.

Our public sector team has over 20 years of experience with housing associations, local authorities, education, and healthcare providers.

We have a range of services to help and support our clients to manage their energy budgets. We will purchase energy at the best time for your organisation and in a compliant manner.

What our clients think

Trident always strives for Value for Money and pride themselves on the relationships they build with clients. Grand Union Housing Group are very happy with their appointment of Trident Utilities.

Our approach

Strategy review

We will undertake a detailed review of your existing energy procurement strategy and then discuss all of your options.

Prepare ITT (Invitation to tender)

An OJEU/FTS compliant invitation to tender will be prepared.

Evaluate initial offers

We will complete an initial evaluation of all the supplier's offers and then will send you a copy to review.
