Submissions have been called for as part of an £8bn contractor framework renewal, by Liverpool-based Procure Partnerships.

It is inviting contractors to register their interest and help shape the structure of the second iteration of its National Contractor Framework, currently structured across 11 sub regional lots.

Procure Partnerships has been operating and delivering a framework across England for the past five years supporting with the procurement and delivery of more than 600 construction projects within this period.

The current intention is for the new Procure Partnerships (National Contractor) Framework to cover five disciplines: Construction, infrastructure, decarbonisation & retrofit, site clearance & demolition, and housing.

Contactors 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.

As well as helping to facilitate collaboration and innovation to deliver projects that will meet the changing needs of the built environment and support ambitions to build back better, the framework will be structured to enable the delivery of meaningful social value, benefiting communities, the environment and helping to protect the future of the industry through enhanced upskilling and training.

Robbie Blackhurst, framework director, said: “We have supported with the delivery of over 600 projects over the past five years and the addition of additional disciples to this iteration of the framework will support with our future growth plans. – we are excited to get started.”

Tender documents are scheduled to be released towards the end of March.
