Using a framework to select suppliers for your service significantly reduces costs involved in the selection process, greatly reduces administration and creates efficiency. Frameworks allows any Authority to access a range of pre-vetted, evaluated and approved suppliers. What’s more, a framework can be tailored to your local and specific requirements.
Dukes are proud to be appointed on to the following frameworks:
More and more Local Authorities are choosing frameworks to meet audit and procurement requirements in their supplier selection process. If your Authority would like to access any of the above frameworks, please do not hesitate to speak with Karl Smith, Dukes’ Operational & Commercial Director on 01785 825 254 or firstname.lastname@example.org

“Dukes Bailiffs Ltd are delivering enforcement and debt collection services for all our debt streams from Council Tax, Parking & Bus Lane enforcement through to Sundry Debt and Former Tenant Arrears collection. They provide both a professional and efficient service that complements our Civica/Hull City Council recovery processes, and we are really pleased with their collection performance. They provide excellent customer services and over a short period of time we have been able to cement a great working relationship with the Dukes Team.”
-Lisa Swaine, Debt & Payments Manager
“Over the years Dukes has been successful in collecting debts that we believed were uncollectable, and their performance has surpassed our expectations.
Dukes provide a highly professional, quality services which meets the requirement of the council. Their success in collecting very difficult debt is largely down to the fact that they contact and visit our debtors to discuss the debt and payment options available, rather than relying on a standard letter service".”
-John Hall, Recovery Manager
“The support that we have received from Dukes to supplement our in-house Enforcement Agent team has proved invaluable, providing training for existing staff and providing additional resources at short notice has had a positive impact on the overall collection rates that we have achieved.”
-Rod Urquhart, Business Rate Manager
“Dukes Bailiffs Ltd have consistently delivered as a supplier of Enforcement Services to us for over more than 15 years. They provide an excellent service and have proven to be a reputable, reliable and approachable partner, with an impressive track record in the collection of debt.”
-Sara Wood, Operations Support Team Leader
“I highly recommend using Dukes Bailiffs as your enforcement provider. Since using them for the recovery of Non-Domestic Rates we’ve seen a noticeable increase in our collection rates. They’re easy to contact, they provide regular updates and they research each debtor before action to ensure that delay tactics cannot be used to stave off recovery.
I feel that Dukes understand the issues and outside influences which Local authorities have when having to use harder methods of recovery, which makes them approachable and easy to work with. Overall, we’re very happy with their results.”
— Michael Riches, NDR Team Manager
“We always find the training that Dukes provide to be extremely useful. In the last 12 months we have received refresher training on ClientWeb and training on their reporting suite, Certus and Commercial Insight product. We were really impressed with the capability of all platforms. We look forward to using them to monitor performance in real-time and to view comprehensive data relating to the health and trading status of businesses that have outstanding arrears.”
