NUTS code UK
Duration of the framework agreement
Duration in years: 7
Justification for a framework agreement, the duration of which exceeds four years: The duration of this framework agreement is 7 years as indicated plus an option for a 3 year extension. 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. The benefits of such initiatives and investment for both the operator and contracting authorities will only be realised over the longer term. Feedback from consultation with the construction industry has also supported the view that a term significantly longer than four years would be needed in order to realise a beneficial return on investment.
