Seven-year framework for government development projects launches



A new funding framework to allow construction firms to bid for work on government projects over the next seven years has been developed.

The Construction Works and Associated Services commercial agreement will assist central government with projects focused on the construction, refurbishment, repair, demolition or decommission of public buildings across the UK.

The framework has been designed by Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and incorporates prompt payment initiatives and project bank accounts to support supply chains.

Suppliers interested in bidding must register on the CCS eSourcing system.

John Welch, deputy director for construction at CCS, said: “This agreement will support construction and drive industry growth.

“Its lotting structure has been designed to maximise opportunities for all sizes of company and that includes SMEs, which play a key role in UK construction.

“This agreement also facilitates the use of digitisation in construction and promotes the use of innovative solutions via modern methods of construction.”
