Pagabo to launch construction, services frameworks worth £10bn
September 10, 2019 – Pagabo, a procurement consultant based in Humberside in eastern England, is launching the second terms of its National Framework for Professional Services in Construction and Premises (2020) and National Framework for Major Works (2020), together valued at £10.5bn.
The company said that it expects to deliver millions of pounds of social value for communities with support from the two frameworks for which it will issue tenders in September 2019.
Pagabo said that the new frameworks will become active from April 2020. Under the frameworks, partners will be selected through an OJEU-compliant tender process.
Winning contractors will know whether they have secured a place in December 2019.
The Major Works framework, which is open for tender from 9 September 2019, is for projects ranging from £5m and above, and currently includes 12 contractors split across three project value bands and six regions.
The Professional Services framework, which will open for tender from 13 September 2019, is for projects up to £500m and has 15 lots. These include civil, structural and highways engineering, landscaping and building surveying, and building services.
The framework features over 50 providers split across 14 service lots.
The company said that Pagabo frameworks are OJEU-compliant and provide flexibility, competition and choice when it comes to commissioning.
The number of suppliers to be appointed to the frameworks can vary, and Pagabo will manage the process by allowing a maximum number of suppliers on a given value band or geographical lot.
The current Major Works framework, which runs until April, has delivered major projects across the country for several clients, including Liverpool John Moores University, St Albans District Council, Richmond upon Thames College, Merseyside Police, Birmingham Symphony Hall, National Royal Orthopaedic Hospital and Doncaster Council.
Professional Services has delivered projects for Southampton City Council, Anchor 2020, Department of Health, Manchester City Council, Northumberland County Council, Humber Foundation NHS Trust and Leeds Beckett University.
Applications for Major Works and Professional Services will be accepted until 31 October 2019.
Pagabo CEO Simon Toplass said that the frameworks have delivered high double-digit growth year on year since their inception in 2016.
He said: “That growth is expected to continue. We are predicting to more than treble the throughput of projects being delivered by the two frameworks over the next four years.
“Importantly, Pagabo’s full suite of eight frameworks has delivered social value of more than £1.5 billion to date – and this continues to be a major focus for the organisation.”
