The Scottish Government is seeking suppliers for a Civil Engineering Works and Associated Services (including Roads and Roads Maintenance) Framework.

The Framework will be split geographically and will feature multi-supplier Lots. It will run for a period of four years. The works will vary in size, value and complexity across Scotland and will be able to be individually called-off, as required by Scottish public sector organisations. The Lots will be confirmed in the Contract Notice, which is estimated to be published in early March 2022.

The terms and conditions of the Framework will be based on NEC4 with call-off Contract (work order) terms being based on the NEC Engineering and Construction Contract (ECC); NEC Engineering and Construction Short Contract (ECSC); with Term Service Contract (TSC) and Term Service Short Contract (TSSC).

The estimated total value for this Framework is £600,000,000.

Support from the Supplier Development Programme

The Scottish Government invites suppliers of all sizes to an Open Supplier Meeting for the future National Civil Engineering Framework (for Works & Associated Services, including Roads & Roads Maintenance) webinar on 27 January 2022. The aim of this webinar is to provide potential bidders with an overview of the Framework and for you to give your initial thoughts and views to representatives of The Scottish Government. It is also an opportunity for these representatives of the Scottish Procurement and Property Directorate (SPPD) to gauge businesses’ interest in being Framework suppliers and/or part of the supply chain for the subsequent civil engineering projects under this Framework. This webinar is open to Tier 1, Tier 2, and Tier 3 contractors, including Scottish SMEs, supported businesses and third sector organisations.
