BAM and Kier on top as regional schools framework goes live

9 Jul 14 The new regional framework of the Education Funding Agency (EFA) goes live this week following completion of the mandatory standstill period.

The regional framework runs for four years and will be used by the EFA, academies, local authorities, dioceses and educational establishments. It is aimed at smaller value individual capital projects, including both refurbishment and reconstruction, and is intended to complement the existing contractors framework. Schemes will generally be valued £3m and £7m, but there is scope for  schemes up to £12m.

There are six regional lots with seven appointed contractors for each region, with the exception of London & Southeast region, which has eight contractors.
