Established in 2015 CIF is an award winning OJEU compliant construction framework that is relieving the burden of poverty through the power of social procurement.

Free to access; our 61 Supply Partners span across 14 groups offering both construction works and services making CIF the most dynamic, comprehensive framework on the market.

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 affects on communities is placed firmly at the heart of our operations and with social value threaded through every action and transaction CIF operates like no other.

Each time CIF is utilised profits are invested into community prevention and intervention services that impact on key public-sector priorities such as employability, health, well being, education and crime reduction.

Designed in conjunction with our public-sector partners we were tasked with creating a socially driven, OJEU compliant, procurement vehicle that not only places the public-sector in the driving seat but provides full financial transparency to protect the public purse.

Our public-sector partners include: NHS Foundation Trusts, Universities, Housing Associations and Local Authorities and our membership has grown organically due to our ethical way of working.

CIF members are not only delivering social value, they are pro-actively relieving the pressure on frontline public-sector services which something never seen before that has untold benefits for both the public-sector and the communities they serve.

Together with our public-sector partners we are making communities safer, stronger, healthier and economically active.

CIF is available for procurement until March 2022.
