Procure Partnerships launches Professional Services Framework

The Procure Partnerships Framework is opening a tender for the below disciplines to bid for a place upon our Professional Services Framework. The framework will run for 4 years and will run alongside our already established Contractor Framework coving the following disciplines; Architectural Design, Landscape Architectural Design, Project Management, Structural Engineering, Civil Engineering, Quantity Surveying, MEP Design, Building Surveying, Principle Designer, Fire Engineering, Sustainability and Environmental.

Awards can be made by public sector clients on a direct award, direct allocation, or further competition basis. In addition, clients can select practices on both the Project Management and Architectural Design lots to build a multidisciplined team. However, unlike other frameworks they will not be able to build that team using practices who are not on the Procure Partnerships (Professional Services) Framework.

Robbie Blackhurst, Procure Partnerships Framework Director commented, “This framework has been two years in the making with the Procure Partnerships team conducting a detailed analysis of other professional services frameworks available to public sector bodies. This has enabled us to build not only a comprehensive framework but also the most competitive framework on the market for public sector bodies to access. The framework is divided into sub-regional lots supporting the appointment of both local and national practices”

Clients will be able to procure Professional Services practices across the following 11 regional lots mirroring the Procure Partnerships (Contractor) Framework: North East, North West, Yorkshire, East Midlands, West Midlands, East of England, London, South East, South West, North Wales, South Wales.

Robbie Blackhurst further commented, “We are excited to get this framework up and running providing a ‘one stop shop’ for public sector clients to procure consultants through us on a direct award or further competition basis, complementing our already successful contractor framework.”

Tender documentation for this framework will be released on Tuesday 26th May and can be accessed via this link – Procure Partnerships framework national framework renewal tender documents
