Procurement: Construction Framework Arrangement

The County Council carries out repair, maintenance and refurbishment work throughout the corporate estate, a construction framework arrangement is required to deliver work around and within the County Council buildings. This will include repairs and refurbishment as well as new build requirements where needed. It will enable the County Council to place works orders with a variety of qualified contractors to deliver works that fall outside of the current maintenance contract.


The anticipated spend through the new Framework is approximately £48m over a maximum term of 4 years. The value of the Framework is greater than £4,733,252 ex VAT so, in order to comply with the requirements of EU/UK law (the Public Contract Regulations 2015) and the County Council’s Standing Orders on Procurement and Contracts, an OJEU procurement must be run to establish a new Framework Agreement.


The Cabinet Member will be asked to agree to the commencement of a procurement process to begin in September 2020, contract to be awarded in January 2021 and commence on 1 February 2021 and to delegate to the Director of Property and Assets, the authority to award contract/contracts.  Further forward plan entries and decision reports will be published as appropriate.
