Procure Partnerships is to invite tenders for a professional services framework to run alongside it recently awarded contractor framework.

The new framework will be broken down into 11 disciplines covering project management, structural and civil engineering through to quality surveying, MEP Design and fire engineering.

Procure Partnerships estimates the framework could account for a spend of up to £500m during the course of four years over the 11 regions in England and Wales.

Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships Framework Director, said: “This framework has been two years in the making with the Procure Partnerships team conducting a detailed analysis of other professional services frameworks available to public sector bodies.

“This has enabled us to build not only a comprehensive framework but also the most competitive framework on the market for public sector bodies to access”

“The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices.

“The architectural and project management lots will have the option to build full multi-disciplinary teams, but unlike other frameworks they must build that team from within the framework and cannot select practices who are not on our professional services framework.”

“We are excited to get this framework up and running providing a ‘one stop shop’ for public sector clients to procure consultants through us on a direct award or mini competition basis, complementing our already successful contractor framework.”

Tender documentation for this framework will be released on Tuesday 26 May and can be accessed via this link.
