A single operator, acting in a partnering arrangement, will be expected to support all participating contracting authorities within the UK in developing collaborative initiatives through this framework. This will include a focus on key strategic objectives including driving efficiencies through the entire supply chain, waste reduction and standardisation. Investing in local communities, providing long term training and job opportunities. In addition, the operator may be required to support contracting authorities with the delivery of long term strategic programmes of asset investment, servicing and maintenance work and also incur on-going capital set up costs for providing certain elements of the work within various sub-regional areas.
