Winners named on £35bn FM framework with social value focus

A total of 44 construction firms have been named on a £35bn facilities management framework that requires reporting on modern slavery, prompt payment and improving opportunities for underrepresented groups.

The framework provider Crown Commercial Service (CCS) named the winners, among which are the facilities management arms of Kier, Mace, Galliford Try, Bam and Wates.

The Facilities Management and Workplace Services framework will run for two years and is divided into three lots, based on the nature of facilities work.

Lot 1 covers total facilities, Lot 2 covers hard facilities and Lot 3 is for soft facilities.

The three lots are further divided into sub-lots a, b and c.

These are based on value bands, with A for contract values up to £1.5m, b for work between £1.5m to £10m, and band c including work above £10m.

Public sector organisations can use the framework to tender for work across the spectrum of facilities management from construction, repairs, installation, asbestos management, and the running of other workplace facilities like waste, security and cleaning.

CCS commercial director for buildings Noreen Winhall said: “The Facilities Management and Workplace Services framework is a key part of our suite of buildings frameworks.

“We can support our customers through the whole lifecycle of a major project – from inception, through facilities management, to demolition, aggregating public sector buying power to grow the UK economy.”

The framework was launched in line with the government’s Sourcing Playbook, which stresses the need for quality work as an awarding criterion, instead of lowest cost.

The suppliers will need to report on how they are scoring, in terms of social value, on a quarterly basis.

All suppliers will be required to meet a baseline level of improvements in modern slavery, carbon cutting, inclusion of underrepresented group, timely payments, and apprenticeships.

Nine SME’s have also been included in the list of winners.

Recently, Lord Aberdare raised concerns about the increasing complexity in bidding for public sector frameworks, which can be a significant time and cost barrier for an SME.
