YORbuild Major Works Contractors Framework Agreement
A Framework Agreement to serve all public sector bodies (and their statutory successors) and third sector organisations in the Yorkshire and Humber region, Sheffield Local Enterprise Partnership region, Lincolnshire, North East England, Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and areas of Leicestershire (UKC, UKE, UKF1, UKF21, UKF22, UKF3) as detailed in the procurement documents.
The works involved are principally general building works, including contractors design when required. In addition some new build housing and civil engineering works may also be included. The full list of accessing bodies is detailed within VI.3.
Principles of collaborative working and partnering will be key to the relationships under the framework.
Lot 1: Building Works 10 000 000 GBP-30 000 000 GBP
Yorkshire and Humber region, Sheffield City Region LEP area and, for educational establishments only, the remaining areas within Notts and Derbyshire, Lincs, NE England and areas of Leicestershire.
Framework for construction works over 10 000 000 GBP up to 30 000 000 GBP.
The framework has an option to extend for a further period of 2 years to allow the appointed contractors adequate time to recoup their significant initial investment in establishing processes and procedures that will deliver the improvements that the clients are seeking through this framework. These include economic regeneration, carbon and waste reduction, training and employment initiatives, training of their staff to new ways of working, BIM and new models of construction procurement.
In addition there will be significant investment required from clients in undertaking the selection and evaluation process, and in particular the training of their staff and consultants to new ways of working. The partnering and collaborative working objectives that will form part of this framework may only be capable of being realised over longer periods of time than 4 years, not least because a number of public sector bodies may only start using this framework when their existing arrangements expire. Further details are set out in the framework documents. Provisional timetable for recourse to these options: in months: 48 (from the award of the framework).
Some projects may receive financial contributions from European Union Funds.
Subject to the technical and financial capability and capacity of applications it is envisaged that 8 contractors will be appointed to Lot 1 of the YORbuild Major Works Contractors Framework Agreement.
Lot 2: Building Works 30 000 000 GBP+
Framework for construction works over 30 000 000 GBP.

Leeds City Council will incorporate a standstill period at the point information on the award of the framework is communicated to tenderers. That notification will provide full information on the award decision. The standstill period, which will be for a minimum of 10-calendar days, provides time for unsuccessful tenderers to challenge the award decision before the contract is entered into.
