Signing the new contract
Accent Foundation is pleased to announce the signing of a new responsive repairs and void property work contract with Milnerbuild Ltd/Keepmoat for our homes and services in Yorkshire and the north east.
For the past six months, a working group of staff and residents have been carefully working on the tender process, which has enabled them to really tailor the requirements of the service to fit both ours, and our residents', needs and expectations.
Over the next two months, the working group and the senior team at Milnerbuild Ltd/Keepmoat will outline a structured mobilisation plan. Some of the improvements identified in the modelling of the new contract have already been agreed as opportunities to implement ahead of schedule in April 2013.
Accent Foundation Managing Director Claire Stone said: "We are very pleased that Milnerbuild were successful in the tender process. Our shared knowledge of our existing performance, our homes and commercial drivers means that we can deliver a very successful and new partnership together, which will meet our residents' expectations and deliver the standard of quality they have a right to expect."
