The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and NEC have worked in partnership to produce a training offer designed for specific CCS contracting frameworks based on the NEC3 Term Service Contract (TSC)
This training programme
is the only available NEC3 TSC training tailored and approved by CCS. It comprises two online courses and one day of classroom training. The successful completion of the programme will grant attendees the NEC and CCS Certificate for Term Services.
CCS commented that the “NEC suite of contracts encourage collaboration and fit within the CCS Buildings Pillar for both Construction and FM, while promoting Government innovations such as Building Information Modelling (BIM).”
NEC and CCS
CCS and NEC have a Memorandum of Understanding outlining NEC3 contracts as best practice in procurement. CCS clients and suppliers benefit from guidance, support and easy access to NEC services on procurement.
NEC has collaborated extensively with CCS, including training CCS staff, helping tender documentation and providing a variety of services to CCS. Clients and suppliers are advised to use NEC for training and organisational support during scoping, tender and supply of services.
The new Facilities Management Contracting Model
Crown Commercial Service's Facilities Management Contracting Model (FMCM) is an agreement that provides an innovative and extensive contracting vehicle giving customers access to a range of specific services including total facilities management, hard FM and soft FM services.
This framework was launched in 2015 and is based on the NEC3 Term Service contract (TSC)
, which is also intended to be used for the appointment of a service supplier.
