Westworks are a Collaborative Group of Housing Associations Local authorities and charities, based in the South and Southwest region of England and Wales, Who work together to achieve better value through the potential extra buying power and influence in the market place.
Established in 2007, Westworks provides solutions that aim to achieve value and quality that exceeds that which can be individually negotiated, resulting in cost savings with the added incentive of internal (mini-tender) competition. Our members now manage approximately 200,000 properties.
Westworks creates and manages frameworks and contracts based on the members’ needs and requirements.By maintaining internal competition between appointed suppliers we can be sure that the arrangements offer exceptional value and keep on delivering. The solutions are procured in accordance with EU directives and UK Regulations.
As one of the 13 Homes and Communities Agency (HCA) backed consortia providing procurement and management solutions for social landlords. Westworks works closely with sister consortia to take advantage of even larger procurement activities through joint procurement as well as seeking solutions for members’ needs which are not directly covered by Westworks solutions. By collaborating more widely than just its members Westworks has been able to deliver a very wide range of solutions without increasing costs; another example of driving efficiency into delivery.
Westworks Procurement Ltd was incorporated in April 2011 and is a not-for profit company wholly owned by its members..
