LGSS wishes to appoint Principal Contractors onto a Framework that will be used to deliver Works for a range of construction projects.

The Framework is open, but not limited, to the following:

(i) All of LGSS including existing and/or future partners and other organisations delegating services and/or functions to LGSS (currently Northamptonshire County Council, Cambridgeshire County Council, Norwich City Council and Northampton Borough Council) who participate in the LGSS shared services venture;

(ii) Clients of LGSS – including, but not limited to Schools and Academies, Fire & Rescue, Health and Police Authorities;

(iii) Any City, District, Borough or other Local Authority within the counties of Northamptonshire and Cambridgeshire;

(iv) Any companies or organisations set up by participants in LGSS;

v) Central Bedfordshire Council as named collaborating Authority

Access to the LGSS Construction Framework shall solely be controlled and managed by LGSS. Framework Providers shall not accept any instruction under this Framework other than from LGSS, unless otherwise notified by LGSS.

The Framework will operate for a period of 3 years (from the award of the contract), with the option to extend for a further period of 1 year in one or more periods, making 4 years in total.

The LGSS Construction Framework will cover construction Works and will include, but not be limited to, repairs and renovation, refurbishment, alterations, demolition, modular build, extensions and new build.

The main objective of the LGSS Construction Framework will be to provide a Framework of excellent contractors who will positively engage with LGSS and LGSS clients and their consultants to provide construction that is highly functional and represents good value. It is intended that five Framework Bands will be established, differentiated by value, as follows:

Band A: £100k up to £1.5m
Band B: £1.5m up to £3m
Band C: £3m up to £6m
Band D: £6m up to £10m
Band E: £10m and above
