The MoD said the initiative is designed to “help smaller businesses to network with potential bidders” for the six UK Regional Capital Works Frameworks.
The regional deals will be used to deliver construction projects valued at up to £12m, alongside the National Capital Works Framework for projects valued up to £50m.
Jon Wooden, the NGEC Capital Works Frameworks project manager, said: “The NGEC frameworks can be used to deliver a wide range of capital projects, so we are aiming to attract the very best businesses, from main contractors down to key suppliers of materials, components and services.
“The initial response from industry has been healthy and I would now encourage smaller businesses to consider how they might get involved.”
More than 80 companies attended a recent bidders day for the £250m Scottish regional framework.
Up to 12 bidders will be invited to submit tenders in March with contract award likely in mid 2014.
Each framework will have a maximum of five contractors awarded to it.
The MoD will then seek competitive bids from these contractors on a project-by-project basis.
The frameworks will run for four years with the option to extend them for up to a further three years.
