The Social Housing Emerging Disruptors (SHED) framework, which allows housing associations and councils to compliantly buy services from startups and micro-businesses, has appointed 21 suppliers.

EVO were selected after completing a robust selection process.

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.
