Construction Impact Framework (CIF) is the UK’s only pro-social construction framework tacking deprivation through social procurement.

Pro-social businesses are self-sustainable social organisations that exist to provide social benefit to people and places.

Our leadership team has a combined 60 years experience delivering frontline public-sector services across some the Country’s most deprived areas. Our understanding of poverty and its effects on communities sits at the heart of CIF’s social economic model that invests CIF profits into community prevention and intervention projects, making public-sector money work harder whilst delivering wider community benefit beyond any contracted activity delivered by CIF supply partners.

“Comparing CIF to other frameworks is like comparing apples to oranges because CIF was born from a place of purpose not profit”. Sara Lawton, Director

The framework is supported by 60 reputable supply partners experienced in delivering capital projects for NHS Foundation Trusts, Universities, Local Authorities and Housing Associations.

Furthermore 96% of CIF supply partners are small to medium enterprises (SME’s) providing value for money, sustaining the SME economy and creating employment opportunities for local people.

Free to access our one-stop-shop for construction works and services provides public-sector organisations with efficient, OJEU compliant procurement solutions that are packed with social value.

CIF went live on 26.03.2018 and is valid until 25.03.22
