Just has been appointed on to Crown Commercial Service's Debt Resolution Services framework

06 January 2022

Just, the enforcement market integrator, has been named as a supplier on Crown Commercial Service's (CCS) Debt Resolution Services (DRS) framework to provide Enforcement Services and Managed Enforcement Services. The framework can be used by central and local government departments to contract services for the enforcement of public sector debt.

CCS supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21 CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04 billion - supporting world-class public services that offer best value for taxpayers.

The two contracts secured within the framework, DRS Lot 5 and Lot 20, will enable government departments to either move from employing multiple enforcement agencies to a managed service operation or try a managed service approach alongside their existing relationships to see the benefits this brings over their existing traditional approaches.

Just has been providing enforcement market integration since 2019 and is currently delivering solutions for local government for the enforcement of parking, traffic, council tax and non-domestic rate debt. The executive team have a wealth of experience, with many of them previously responsible for the Cabinet Office’s Debt Management Integration and Debt Management Services contracts which delivered significant value for the UK Government over the past seven years. Their approach to enforcement market integration allows government departments to use a network of enforcement agencies through a managed service approach. Saving procurement, legal, contracting and management costs and ensuring better debt resolution outcomes for all.

Just Managing Director, Nick Georgiades commented “DRS is an integral tool for the Government to integrate a variety of debt resolution solutions to ensure best-in-class suppliers are available to deliver important government requirements. We are pleased to have been selected as a key supplier with the responsibility to build a network of enforcement agencies to deliver key enforcement needs through a managed service approach.”
