The Procure Partnerships Framework
The Procure Partnerships Framework pushes the boundaries of how procurement can support public sector bodies to deliver their strategic targets.
The Procure Partnerships Framework was established to support public sector bodies to procure contract partners. The framework is divided regionally, supporting the framework values of local delivery with national governance.
The Procure Partnerships Framework pushes the boundaries of how procurement can support public sector bodies to deliver their strategic targets. The framework is designed to be flexible and provides clients with single stage or two stage procurement options and up to eight forms of call off contract. There is also no fee for public sector bodies across the UK to access the framework and clients are always in full control of their projects via their individual ‘Project Page’ hosted on the ‘iProcure ePortal’.
As well as helping to facilitate projects that will help shape our growing towns and cities, it was important for us to give something back and help protect the future of the industry through enhanced upskilling and training. Like other frameworks, our partners will be required to deliver projects in line with the Social Value Act, but we drive and monitor social impact with each project needing to create at least 12% of its GMP value in additional social benefit.
Through our experience and detailed analysis of procurement options across the UK, there are multiple factors that result in frameworks not working in the most efficient or beneficial ways for both client and contractors. We have addressed these issues when structuring the Procure Partnerships Framework, ensuring it is flexible yet robust, and that our clients can prove demonstrable value for money when procuring their projects in partnership with us.
