Central PPE & Clothing Contract

Central PPE & Clothing Contract supplied by Bristol Uniforms

The Central PPE & Clothing Contract (CPCC) is a national procurement framework through which FRSs in England and Wales can procure national identity clothing for employees throughout their organisations. Bristol Uniforms was awarded the original contract to supply a wide range of PPE and non-PPE clothing in 2008.  This was refreshed in 2015 to include the very latest state-of-the-art structural PPE designs, as well as a comprehensive range of helmets, firehoods, gloves and boots.

On joining the programme, FRSs can relax in the knowledge that all clothing and equipment purchased through the scheme has been rigorously assembled, trialled and tested, and independently scrutinized and approved by the Crown Commercial Services.  This precludes the need for tendering costs and local product performance testing, helping to save time and considerably reduce costs, without compromising on quality.

The Central PPE & Clothing Contract (CPCC) scheme meets the needs of well over 6,500 firefighters as well as many non-frontline staff.  It offers an extensive range of clothing and equipment in 28 male and female sizes, ranging from firefighter protective clothing and stationwear to corporate wear, undress clothing and sports clothing. The latest structural and technical rescue PPE ranges are based on Bristol’s ergonomic XFlex and RescueFlex design platforms, using top of the range Hainsworth outer fabrics with Gore CROSSTECH moisture barriers.

Membership of the Central PPE & Clothing Contract (CPCC) also provides access to a variety of service options, offering maximum flexibility to suit the needs and preferences of any FRS.  These include a fully managed services option, a lease option with planned maintenance, a PPE purchase option with flexible managed services provision, and a basic purchase option.  With its two in-house Service Centres located in Bristol and Greater London, Bristol Uniforms is well placed to offer comprehensive maintenance services to its clients across the UK.  Soiled or damaged garments are collected from FRSs around the country, transported to one of the Service Centres for thorough cleaning, inspection and repair, before being returned to the customer within a guaranteed seven days.

The CPCC is free and straightforward to join, and easy to manage.  It also benefits from an online management process, offering information and data on kit and stock, which is accessible remotely, around the clock.
