We have a proud history of supplying gas and electricity to the UK’s Public Sector since 1987. Our flexible and transparent ethos towards flexible energy procurement has helped to design and tailor bespoke products suited to meet the specific needs of the Public Sector.

We are currently the sole supplier on six awarded Framework Agreements, four gas and two power, which have been awarded by four Public Buying Organisations (PBOs). Our bespoke Public Sector team manage these contracts directly with the PBOs who contract with a multitude of end user/ individual public sector customers, supplying approximately 60,000 Public Sector sites. The customers include Local Authorities, NHS Trusts, Higher and Further Education establishments, Schools, Emergency Services and Housing Associations

For further information on these on the Framework Agreements we currently supply please contact us using the relevant form and one of our team will make contact with you.

Framework Agreements

We recommend that public sector customers join Framework Agreements run by the recognised PBOs wherever possible as they have the following benefits:

OJEU Compliant

No requirement to tender as these have been through a full OJEU-compliant tendering process, therefore saving you time and money on a compliant tendering exercise. This also removes the risk of legal challenges over non-compliant contractual positions.

Awarded & Managed by Contracting Authorities

Framework Agreements are set in place by contracting authorities who are Public Sector organisations themselves.


Not-for-profit commission structures from all PBOs, meaning no hidden fees.

Dedicated Points of Contact

Total Gas & Power run bespoke and dedicated Customer Service and Contract Management teams for each PBO.

Terms & Conditions Pre-Agreed

Terms & Conditions are set in place prior to a framework agreement being awarded, providing a high degree of legal security.

Aggregated Trading

Buyer power is created through aggregating supply volume, thus allowing for significant volumes to be traded on the wholesale market.

Access to Specialist Support

PBOs have specialist full-time dedicated energy trading teams, which are supported by a full suite of Market Intelligence tools to optimise their energy buying position.

Access to Added Value Services

Framework Agreements allow access to additional goods and services, e.g. Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) services or Green Energy (gas and power).

Managed Risk Strategies

PBO risk strategies/products have been designed to suit the needs of their customers. These are usually reviewed by their Governance members to ensure that they provide full governance in respect of risk strategy.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

PBOs operate KPIs as part of the contract, ensuring supplier performance is monitored from the award stage of the contract.

Join at Any Time

You can join at any point with no need for prior registration to the PBO tendering exercise.
