The third generation frameworks will align with the Government Construction Playbook and the Value Toolkit due to be launched by the Construction Innovation Hub later this year.
Covering the YORhub east region led by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and the west region led by Leeds City Council, each will dovetail with the existing YORbuild Major Works framework.
Each region will be split into two lots. One will cover new build and refurbishment works valued between £4m and £10m, the other new housing over 25 units.
A dozen contractors will be selected for each of the regional lots.
Tenders are to be returned in mid-September for evaluation with the new line-up of firms expected to be announced in early 2022.
The frameworks will place greater stress on MMC/off-site solutions, carbon reduction/net zero target and an enhanced sustainability offer.
Other key features include direct selection and single or two-stage mini competition call off options, and the use of NEC4 as the preferred form of contract, although use of JCT will still be permitted.
Steve Baker, YORhub lead officer and Chair of the Local Government Association Construction Steering Group, said that since YORbuild was first launched in 2009, YORhub has delivered over 1500 building projects worth £2.5bn for more than 90 public sector clients.
Later this year YORhub will also begin procurement of the YORbuild3 Minor Works frameworks for works up to £4m.
