Thirteen has been appointed to the North East, Yorkshire and Humber lot on the Homes and Communities Agency’s (HCA’s) Delivery Partner Panel 3 (DPP3) four-year framework agreement.

HCA Delivery Panel

9 Aug 2017

The DPP is used by the HCA as well as local authorities, registered providers and other public sector bodies including central government departments, NHS Trusts and educational establishments to help them streamline their procurement process.

The panel will provide a simple and speedy procurement route for public sector organisations to appoint a developer or contractor.

By providing access to a pre-qualified list of housing developers, the panel makes procurement far more efficient, delivering significant time, cost and resource savings.

DPP3 builds on the HCA’s experience of operating its first and second partner panels, which have so far delivered over 43,500 homes, through 258 schemes over seven years.

Ian Wardle, chief executive at Thirteen, said: “We are delighted to be appointed to the HCA’s Housing Delivery Partner Panel, which reinforces our position a successful housing developer.

“As part of the DPP3, Thirteen will be able to continue to work towards its objective of delivering 2,000 homes over the next five years.

“Working closely with the HCA and its partner organisations we will continue to build quality new homes for those that need it most which in turn will encourage the regeneration of the Tees Valley.”
