Suppliers are now able to bid for Pagabo’s newest framework offerings, specialising in decarbonisation projects.
The offering brings two brand-new frameworks to the market, which are both valued at £1.6bn and will run for four years once live.
Each will have its own contracting authority, with one framework dedicated to healthcare schemes having Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) serving as a sector-specialist host.
Meanwhile, the second framework will be open to clients from all other sectors, hosted by Kingston upon Hull City Council.
The frameworks will appoint contractors to provide a complete business solution for clients.
This will allow clients to go directly to main contractors to undertake the retrofit assessments, work up costs, and bring in supply chain partners to deliver the scheme, while serving as a single point of contact.
Following market engagement, Pagabo has made some revisions to the setup of the frameworks. Both will now have four value-banded lots, applicable to the 12 geographical regions.
- Lot 1 – up to £1m
- Lot 2 - £1m to £5m
- Lot 3 - £5m to £15m
- Lot 4 - £15m+
The frameworks are also split by three scopes to ensure that main contractors are active in the relevant market, with a requirement to submit case study evidence. The scope will include but not be limited to cover:
- Domestic Low Rise
- Domestic High Rise
- Non-Domestic – commercial, health, education, and leisure
Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said: “With the ongoing climate crisis, accessing specialist organisations and critical skills for retrofit and decarbonisation works has never been more important for clients – but it’s critical that these services are procured with full compliance, which is why we’re very pleased to be bringing this framework offering to the market.
“Our aim is always to make things as simple and efficient as possible for both clients and suppliers, which is why certain changes have been made to the decarbonisation framework during development after the Prior Information Notice (PIN) earlier in the summer.”
He added: “We intend these frameworks to provide the vehicle to help clients with their net zero projects and strategies, with the dedicated offering meaning that all-important decarbonisation schemes can be procured and underway as quickly as possible – for the benefit of people, communities and the planet.”
Interested parties are encouraged to submit their bids before October 23.
Those wishing to be appointed to both the healthcare-specific and wider sector offerings will be required to submit two separate tenders, which will be evaluated according to each framework.
