Suppliers are being urged to sign up to a £2bn London-wide local government construction programme.
The London Construction Programme (LCP) is a virtual partnership between 43 London authorities, led and hosted by Haringey Council.
Founded in 2012, the partnership aims to ‘‘develop a Pan-London strategy to improve construction procurement’’ and to “design, create and maintain construction related frameworks and dynamic purchasing systems (DPS) to support the delivery of works and infrastructure projects for its members.”
The new tender, listed by Haringey Council, invites suppliers to bid forork on a new 12 year, £2bn programme for the provision of construction, engineering, estates and property professional services.
The DPS divides London into five regions and suppliers can select the location and the values of the contracts they wish to be considered for.
As well as being divided up regionally, the programme falls into 18 categories of work, and suppliers can apply to be considered for a single category, a number of lots or all 18.
Constructionline, an online register for pre-qualified contractors and consultants will assess and monitor information from suppliers applying for contracts to help develop the DPS.
Details are currently vague, but works will likely cover all aspects of construction and infrastructure development.
The DPS categories include construction-related multi-disciplinary services, construction project management services, highways and transport services and architectural design services.
- DPS applicants should register as suppliers on the DPS landing page hosted by Constructionline, here.
