Update

03/08/2020 – A new Prior Information Notice (PIN) has been released for this agreement that includes new timescales and an International Services lot. We will continue to speak to the market to develop this agreement, which is expected to go to tender in January 2021 and go live on 3 November 2021. This agreement will replace RM3741 Project Management and Full Design Team Services which expires on 2 November 2021. 

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. It is proposed that the Framework will offer full project management and design team services.
