£30bn CCS framework due to launch at end of the month

construction site

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is due to launch its £30bn commercial framework, the largest ever published by the government, at the end of the month.

The announcement came as the CCS released a second prior information notice (PIN) giving more details about the framework.

Companies on the CCS Construction Works Contractors framework will be recommended for all central government department construction projects.

The framework will also be available to local authorities and other public sector bodies including the health, police, fire, and education services as well as devolved administrations. The framework will run for an initial three years but could be extended for a further three years.

In the new PIN it confirmed that the framework will be divided into eleven lots covering either building and civil engineering works in banded by project value or by discipline.

Five of the eleven lots will be based nationally, while the remaining six will be divided into sub lots covering either five or three geographical regions.

Since the release of the first PIN in February last year, the CCS has been carrying out a series of customer, supplier and construction works engagement webinars to refine the details of the procurement. 

It said “some forms” of road construction projects, would be included in the framework, in particular, it said, when linked to a property or estates requirement as a programme.

However, it said the main function of the framework is targeted at property and estates construction requirements and it was not intended to replace the Highways England frameworks for major works.
