Last week it was announced that construction firms from across the north of England have been chosen as public sector framework suppliers.
The chosen businesses will now have access to future opportunities for developments in the North West, valued at over £2 billion.
Procure North West framework
Winning companies will be a part of the Procure North West (PNW) framework. This framework agreement includes public sector bodies across the region and is open to NHS bodies, emergency services, colleges, universities, schools, local authorities, housing associations, and registered charities.
Other government departments such as the MOD will also be able to procure projects through the PNW framework. Robbie Blackhurst, Managing Director of Procure North West, has said that:
“Having the contractor partners on board was the last missing piece of the jigsaw and we are delighted that the framework is now live and can start to support the public sector deliver their capital projects.”
Where is this money being spent?
This framework covers Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria and Merseyside and is open until 2022. It has been reported that the framework has been split into four lots of different values.
The Manchester Evening News has reported that Casey Group and Seddon Construction will be in the running for projects valued between £1m – £5m. Larger companies, Bardsley Construction and Graham could potentially be selected for contracts worth £5 – £15m.
