II.2.4)Description of the procurement:
HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC) is the UK’s tax and customs authority, responsible for making sure that the money is available to fund the UK’s public services and for helping families and individuals with targeted financial support.
Through our customs service we facilitate legitimate trade and protect our economic, social and physical security.
The Building our Future Programme is overseeing the structural reorganisation of HMRC, which will see the current landscape of 170 offices reoriented into 13 big, modern Regional Centres, equipped with the digital infrastructure and training facilities needed to make HMRC a more highly-skilled organisation, fit for the demands of the 21st century, as part of the Government Hubs Programme.
The Government Hubs Programme will transform central government’s office estate by accommodating departmental workforces in shared regional hubs and supporting office estate. The hubs will be where our future workforce needs to be: strategic locations with great public transport connectivity, local amenities and a modern working environment, including technology that supports smart working. They will be shared spaces where departments will be supported in attracting and retaining the talented individuals we need to deliver the best possible service to the public.
Croydon Regional Office is the first of 13 Regional Centres to be delivered throughout the UK over the 5 year Programme, replacing some 23 outdated and poorly located offices scattered across South East England with a single Grade A office building at a site that meets the core principles of the HMRC Locations Strategy. Staff will be drawn in from the full range of HMRC lines of business, alongside colleagues from the Valuation Office Agency.
Transitional Site — There is a requirement for a transitional site as a temporary home for teams who need to move out of Head Office and to give flexibility to support the move to the new Regional Centres.
