ProCure23 deal broken down into five lots
The government has fired the starting gun on a giant £30bn framework for public spending bodies in England.
Firms are being invited to bid for the 56-month ProCure23 framework by the Crown Commercial Service.
It is the fourth generation of the ProCure framework, which has seen more than 1,200 project completed across England with a total spend of £9.7bn over the past 19 years.
Bidders have until 8 November to send in requests to participate with a webinar outlining more details about the process due to be held next Monday.
The first three lots of the five-lot framework will be used for capital works for hospitals and will only be open to NHS bodies in England. They will not be used for the government’s new hospital programme.
These lots, which are all valued at £3bn, will cover healthcare projects valued at less than £20m, those valued between £20m and £70m, and those valued at more than £70m.
A fourth lot valued at £1bn will be used for the construction of airfield related works.
And a fifth lot valued at £20bn will be used for general non-sector specific construction jobs worth more than £80m.
These last two lots are effectively an expansion of the government’s Construction Works and Associated Services framework and will aim to drive forward the Construction Playbook launched last autumn.
Six firms sit on the current ProCure22 framework: Bam, Galliford Try, Graham, Tilbury Douglas, formerly Interserve, Kier and the Vinci/Sir Robert McAlpine joint venture called IHP.
