21/11/2019 – Update – customer and supplier engagement survey results

We presented the results of the initial market engagement customer and supplier surveys, on 5 September 2019. Take a look at the customer and supplier engagement section for slides from these sessions.

We have board approval for two separate frameworks, RM6165 Construction Professional Services (CPS), this agreement, and RM6168 Estates Management Services.


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 May 2021.

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

  • project management services
  • architectural consultancy services
  • cost management consultancy services
  • civil and structural consultancy engineering services
  • building services consultancy engineering
  • environmental 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.
