Construction Professional Services

Update

15/02/2021 – Market engagement has now ended. You can find more information on this agreement in the construction professional services document.  Estimated procurement timelines are available at the bottom of this page.

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 agreement will offer a full range of construction professional services across a range of lots.

Our category strategy proposed the development of a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) to complement this agreement.

We plan for this DPS to be live at the same time as the RM6165 agreement. Market engagement sessions will take place soon and will be advertised through a separate Prior Information Notice (PIN).

We will invite suggestions and feedback on the structure of the DPS from market industry experts, specialists, suppliers and potential customers.

If you have any questions about this separate procurement please email the team.
