https://www.wmfs.net/your-fire-service/openness/documents/

Our contracts for gas and electricity (half hourly and non-half hourly electricity) are via various framework contracts awarded by CCS (Crown Commercial Services)

Gas with Corona

Half Hourly Elec with British Gas

Non Half Hourly Elec with EDF

Here is a link to CCS it is considered good practice by local government to use this framework as they bulk buy, central Government are mandated to use it.
