Memorandum of Understanding

Procurement Home

On the 6th July 2017 Ann Millington presented a Fire Commercial Transformation Programme (FCTP) update paper to the National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC). The FCTP asked the NFCC to endorse and approve a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which was approved and the FCTP have now asked all CFO’s to sign on behalf of their FRS. The purpose of the MoU is to provide clarity on the roles and responsibilities of both the FCTP and individual FRSs. The MoU states that:

  • The FCTP and FRSs are committed to excellence in fire and rescue commercial/procurement activity, increasing collaboration across the emergency services sector and delivering best value
  • FRSs will actively engage with the FCTP and it is envisaged that subject to any local decisions (on an informed and considered basis) that determines otherwise, will participate in future FCTP collaborative projects.
  • FRS will be expected to contribute to projects (leading or supporting) through the virtual teams that will be established within this programme.

For any FRSs that have not yet completed and signed the MOU a Word version is provided in link below. Please submit completed and signed MOUs to Luke Malton.
