The B2G framework will be suited to buyers who appreciate the continuity of a working relationship with a principal contractor to manage projects irrespective of scale, complexity or geographic spread. It consists of a single lot – England – and we anticipate the framework being used by buyers for a wide range and type of call- off project, from single site to multi-site, and both one-off and term-based contracts.
Suppliers must therefore be experienced principal contractors with national scale and:
— proven capability of managing and delivering all forms of building upgrade and associated works and services including thermal upgrades, roofing upgrades, kitchen and bathroom replacements, window and door replacements, disability adaptations and cyclical decoration and repairs;
— proven capability and capacity to co-ordinate and deliver complex, concurrent multi-site projects across England with a wide range of values above the threshold including those with a minimum of GBP 5 million+,
— proven capability of managing projects on both housing and non-housing asset types which may include residential, flats, sheltered and shared accommodation, administrative, educational, health, storage, technical, industrial, agricultural, commercial, retail, leisure and communal property owned or managed by the contracting authority.
This will be a 4-year framework, which we envisage awarding in December 2020, with review after 2 years which we envisage being December 2022.
