Award values vary between £1m and £144m, highlighting how the framework enables SMEs to operate side by side with larger companies.
The new Scheme Delivery Framework replaces the soon-to-expire existing contract mechanisms, known as the Construction Works Framework (CWF), Design Services Contracts (DSC) and Asset Support Contract (ASC).
The framework is split into four bands:
- Band A – Civil Engineering and Drainage
- Band B – Temporary Traffic Management and Road Restraint Systems
- Band C – Specialist works
- Band D – Design

Around 23% of the overall framework value has been awarded to SMEs, so creating a secure pipeline of work and increasing innovation across the board.
