The Liverpool-based procurement body has been operating and delivering a successful framework across England for the past five years supporting the procurement and delivery of over 600 construction projects.
Now over 20 firms face a fight to renew their places on the next iteration of the framework, which will be structured across 11 sub regional lots.
Tender documents are scheduled to be released towards the end of March, and firms are being encouraged to register early to help shape the next procurement contest through two online contractor engagement days.
These will be held on 18 January 10.30-11.30 and Thursday 19th January 10.00-11.00. (to register click here)
Procurement Partnerships then hopes to go live with its new framework partners in Autumn 2023.
Presently it is intended that the framework will also cover five disciplines: construction; infrastructure; decarbonisation & retrofit; site clearance & demolition; and housing.
Contractors will be able to select which disciplines in which regions they tender for. The current framework is designed to be flexible and will provide clients with four call-off options and eight call-off contracts.
Robbie Blackhurst, Framework Director, said: “We are delighted to be launching the second iteration of our highly successful National Contractor Framework.”
Contractors can register their initial interest by completing the market engagement questionnaire. Register here.
