Justification for any framework agreement duration exceeding 4 years: this framework agreement will run for 4 years with the option to extend for 1 + 1 years (not exceeding 6 years in total). Under Regulation 33(3) of the Public Contract Regulations 2015, this is justified by the subject matter of the framework agreement for the following reasons. The authority is seeking a long-term, collaborative partnering relationship with framework contractors which will deliver innovation, efficiency and continuous improvement. Due to the length of time it takes for construction projects to come to fruition, four years is unlikely to be sufficient to realise the benefits sought, collate data on performance and use it to improve partnering behaviours, and to justify the resources to be invested by the Authority and the framework contractors in building and managing the relationship.
