New NACF Chair announced

We are delighted to announce the appointment of our new Chair, John Simons.

The NACF, a collaborative group of public sector frameworks, was formed in 2014 to drive innovation, quality, efficiency, and sustainability across the built environment.

Keith Heard from SCF was elected as chair and has helped the group grow from strength to strength, becoming a nationally recognised body that has delivered step change improvements throughout the generations of regional and national frameworks.

With our 10-year anniversary coming up later this year, John Simons of SCAPE has been elected as our new Chair to lead us through the next chapter. SCAPE’s legacy Regional Construction framework was one of the founding members of the NACF, and John brings a wealth of experience in procurement best practice and is committed to maintaining and improving the highest standards.

“I would like to thank Keith for leading the Group to date. Our public sector colleagues face many challenges, but I am confident that the NACF’s collective expertise and strategic support will continue to improve and enhance procurement in the years to come.”
