Interserve Group Limited, the international support services, construction and equipment group, has been awarded a place on the new £8bn Procure Partnerships Framework.
The Procure Partnerships Framework (PPF) was established to support public sector bodies to procure construction contractor partners. The framework is divided into regional lots supporting the framework values of local delivery with national governance.
PPF is designed to provide a flexible vehicle to allow customers to create bespoke tender events within the framework to meet their needs by simplifying procurement for the public sector, providing demonstrable value for money, saving time and delivering measurable social value.
The pilot for the PPF was in the North West region where Interserve Construction was a contractor partner and through which it secured the £13m contract to deliver a project to create an arts and heritage centre in Oldham’s existing Victorian Grade 2-listed former library and museum.
Members of the new Framework, which runs for four years, will have access to contracts valued from £1m up to £25m-plus and covering a wide range of public construction projects including educational institutions; emergency services: the NHS; local authorities; social housing; housing associations; libraries and museums; the Ministry of Defence and other Government departments.
Interserve Construction’s Strategic Account Director, Paul Harvey said: “Winning access to Framework agreements is key to Interserve Construction’s long-term strategy so we are especially pleased to join the Procure Partnerships Framework as a contractor partner”.
This award comes just weeks after being awarded a place on four Frameworks with Yorkshire Water worth more than £2bn and the Governments new £30bn CCS Framework.
Framework Director, Robbie Blackhurst, said: “The Procure Partnerships Framework has been structured to offer clients an OJEU and PCR15 compliant route to market. Clients can choose between running single-stage fully priced tenders, two-stage mini competitions, or to direct award.
“We also recognise that the delivery of measurable social value is key for our public sector clients, and as such we have pledged to invest 12% of each projects value back into social value activities while giving our public sector clients control over where that money is best spent”
