National fuels

RM3801 Start date: 11 August 2017 End date: 10 August 2021

This framework provides a fully compliant route to market for all types of fuels and associated services for government and wider public sector customers, whether you require a regional or national supplier.

National Fuels is a new and improved version of our Liquid Fuels framework, which had a 100% customer retention rate. It builds on the success of our previous deal with the addition of Liquefied Gas (LPG), Biomass Fuels (wood-chip & wood-pellets), Greases and Lubricants plus Associated Products and Services to provide a comprehensive solution for our customers.

Choose from 5 product and service options, known as ‘lots’:

  • Lot 1 - Bulk Liquid Fuels (subdivided into 14 regional lots)
  • Lot 2 - Liquefied Gas (LPG)
  • Lot 3 - Solid Fuel (Biomass Fuels)
  • Lot 4 - Greases and Lubricants
  • Lot 5 - Associated Services

The benefits

Great savings

Whatever your requirements our bulk buying power can help you make great savings. Join one of our eAuctions and let us combine your requirements with those of other organisations to drive down prices and provide competitive supply margins.

Support from commercial specialists

We aim to make your life easier by ensuring your Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and service levels are met. We also support further competitions under Lot 1 and 2 of the framework and provide access for customers to run their own call offs when required.


All our suppliers are assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, capability and price before being awarded a place on the framework, so you can rest assured that you’re getting great value from reliable suppliers.

Transparent pricing options

As civil servants we all share a common goal to minimise public sector spend and make savings. Our commission is low and completely transparent meaning we’ve got some of the most competitive supplier management fees around.

How to buy

For Lots 1 and 2, you will need to carry out a further competition to find the most suitable supplier to meet your needs.

For Lots 3, 4 and 5 you can use direct award. An online catalogue is also available for direct purchases via the Government eMarketplace.

If you don’t already have a login for the eMarketplace, please see our guidance on how to register and the link to register.
