Firms need to register their interest by early next month

Braintree council is looking for consultants from a range of specialties to sign up for its £25m framework.

The 11-lot framework has been set up for use by any public sector organisation and includes architectural, engineering and surveying specialisms.

Each lot of the framework has the potential to be worth up to £4m – although the total amount spent through the framework is not expected to top £25m.

The council said each lot will be multi-disciplinary and that firms would be expected to be involved in a wide range of projects at different stages.

Firms interested in the deal have until 6 October to register their interest.
