UK public sector set to award up to £4 billion FM framework contracts under TSC
Crown Commercial Service (CCS), the UK government agency providing buying services to the public sector, is to let an NEC-based facilities management framework worth up to £4.1 billion.
 
A total of up to 30 facilities management contractors will be appointed to the four-year ‘pan government collaborative framework agreement’, which is based on the NEC3 Term Service Contract (TSC).
 
Total, hard and soft FM 
 
The work will be divided into three lots, with up to £3.1 billion of ‘total’ facilities management and up to £0.5 billion each of ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ facilities management.
 
Clients for the framework include central government departments and agencies, nondepartmental public bodies, National Health Service bodies and local authorities.
 
NEC has collaborated extensively with CCS on the framework, including training CCS staff, helping with tender documentation and signing a memorandum of understanding to provide a variety of services to CCS over the life of the framework.
 
PM and traffic frameworks
 
NEC has also helped CCS put together a similar framework for re-procuring project management and full design team services using the NEC3 Professional Service Contract (PSC) and possibly the Professional Service Short Contract (PSSC).
 
The invitation to tender is due to appear in September 2015 with a view to a new agreement being live in December 2015.
 
A further framework for traffic management technology, possibly using the NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC), Supply Contract (SC) and TSC, is due to be invited shortly. It is estimated to be worth up to £150 million.
