The UK's Department for Education has started the tender race for a fresh line-up of firms to deliver its £7bn school building programme over four years. Like its previous framework, firms can bid for 22 lots. This framework bidding opportunity is open to all construction firms registered in Scotland, as well as further afield.

List of Lots

For high-value projects over £12m, England is being split into "North" and "South" regional panels of building contractors.

Medium value projects between around £5m and £12m will be divided into eight regional lots, and lower value schemes will be split into a dozen regional lots.

Firms have until 5 February 2021 to submit prequalification information and are encouraged to express an interest on the DfE eTendering Portal.
