It is proposed to renew the current Framework and extend its scope to cater for every construction project over 250 000 GBP threshold and to incorporate the lessons learned from the current iteration.
The Framework has been a catalyst for engagement and upskilling of the regional supply chain.
Alongside the regional framework, the project's scope is to also continue improving the current construction procurement practices for projects valued below this threshold across the region, to ensure consistency, driving the delivery of community benefits, develop continuous improvement and set new benchmarks for best practice.
It is proposed that the framework will be set up by the six NW authorities and available to be used by other public sector agencies (Higher Education, Police Authority and Fire and Rescue Services) by July 2018 and be in place for four years (with a break clause to review after the first 2 years).
A Collaborative and integrated framework, building on the foundations of NWCF 1
Harvesting benefits and savings from use of technology, improved processes, Collaborative working, supply savings and efficiencies through fairness, transparency and competitive collaboration on projects.
Maximising local, community and impacts through SME engagement and intelligent quality based selection and clearly defined targets and benchmarked performance.
Exceeding the performance and outputs from NWCF1, with enhanced value for the Customers, Stakeholders and communities.
Being the ‘go to’ procurement solution for public bodies in north Wales.
Whilst the exact detail of the anticipated spend is unconfirmed, Government spend projections and extrapolation of the performance of the NWCF1 indicate that a likely spend of some 400m GBP is anticipated.
