Construction Professional Services

Update

09/06/2020 – Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, we have taken a decision to extend the existing PMFDTS (RM3741) commercial agreement for 6 months until 2 November 2021. We still intend to replace RM3741 with this agreement and pre-market engagement activity will be conducted soon (provisional dates are included below). If you have any questions please email the team.

Scope

This agreement offers the provision of construction-related professional services, used by central government departments and all other UK public sector bodies. It will replace the current agreement, Project Management and Full Design Team Services Framework (RM3741) which expires in November 2021.

Depending on the response we receive from market engagement, the agreement will offer:

  • project management services
  • architectural consultancy services
  • cost management consultancy services

We will confirm the final lot structure and strategy in the Contract Notice at a later date, along with the estimated value of the agreement.
