National framework organisation Pagabo is predicting to deliver millions of pounds of social value for communities with support from its two newest frameworks going out for tender this month.
Pagabo is introducing the second terms of its National Framework for Professional Services in Construction and Premises (2020) and National Framework for Major Works (2020) – together worth £10.5 billion.
Chief Executive Simon Toplass reports that the frameworks have delivered “high double digit” growth year-on-year since their inception in 2016, with growth expected to continue.
He said: ” We are predicting to more than treble the throughput of projects being delivered by the two frameworks over the next four years.
“Importantly, Pagabo’s full suite of eight frameworks has delivered social value of more than £1.5 billion to date – and this continues to be a major focus for the organisation.”
Under the new frameworks, which become active from April 2020, partners will be selected through a rigorous OJEU compliant tender process. Winning contractors will learn if they have secured a place in December this year.
The Major Works framework – which opened on 9 September – is suitable for projects from £5 million and above. It currently includes 12 contractors split across three project value bands and six regions.
The Professional Services framework – open for tender from 13 September – is for projects up to £500 million and has 15 lots including civil, structural and highways engineering, building services, landscaping and building surveying. The framework features more than 50 providers split across 14 service specific lots.
Toplass added: “The tender process for suppliers looking to be appointed to our frameworks need to show strong finances, lots of relevant experience and, in particular, share our three key values and ambitions around social value, supporting SMEs, and technology.”
The current Major Works framework, which runs to April, has delivered high profile projects all over the country for clients including Liverpool John Moores University, St Albans District Council, Richmond upon Thames College, Merseyside Police, Birmingham Symphony Hall, National Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and Doncaster Council,
Professional Services has delivered projects for Southampton City Council, Anchor 2020 Ltd, Department of Health, Manchester City Council, Northumberland County Council, Humber Foundation NHS Trust and Leeds Beckett University.
Submission deadlines for Major Works and Professional Services are 31 October.
