Futurebuilders' new consortium to bid on sector's behalf for contracts - 1 April 2009

An independent consortium that will bid for government contracts on behalf of the third sector is being created by Futurebuilders England.

Futurebuilders has revealed it will create an independent company limited by guarantee with the resources, scale and expertise to bid for large government contracts.

It will recruit organisations and people with the skills needed to win contracts to run its tendering processes, as well as organisations with expertise in health, education and welfare reform to act as its delivery arm.

The organisation is expected to be in place by the end of April 2009.
