MoD announces frameworks for construction projects

The Ministry of Defence (MoD) has announced it will develop six regional capital works frameworks for construction projects valued at less than £12m and one national framework for higher-value projects, more complex projects and cross-region programmes up to a value of £50m, under its Next Generation Estate Contracts (NGEC) programme.

Industry is now invited to submit expressions of interest, marking the start of the procurement process for these new commercial arrangements.

The regional frameworks are designed to demonstrate improving value for money in MoD construction projects and an opportunity for a greater proportion of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to be involved in the frameworks.

The regional frameworks will cover: Scotland; the North East, North West and Yorkshire and the Humber; the West Midlands and Wales; the East of England and East Midlands; the South East (including London); and the South West.
