“It is important to provide our public sector with flexibility in procurement and as such clients can choose between running single stage fully priced tenders, two stage mini competitions or to direct award. We are excited to now take our proven and successful framework model across England and Wales and work with clients to not only deliver successful procurement exercises, but also successful projects.”

Neil Pates, managing director of strategic framework and alliances at Kier, said: “Being appointed to all 20 lots of the Procure Partnerships Framework is great news for us at Kier. Approximately 65% of our work in Kier Construction is procured through long-term frameworks and we continue to deliver exciting projects through these. We look forward to working on this new and exciting framework, which will give our clients a modern and flexible way of procuring public sector work nationally.”

BAM Construct UK chief executive James Wimpenny said: “We are delighted to secure every lot in the Procure Partnerships framework, which has been extended to cover all areas of England and Wales. This announcement allows BAM to build on the success delivered through the North West framework and collaborate with our valued public sector clients nationally, providing best-value and meeting their needs.”

Robbie Blackhurst added: “BAM’s approach to public sector project delivery and social value is one of the many reasons why we are looking forward to working with them over the next four years. We are particularly impressed with their experience of delivering complex high value projects and we are excited to further develop our relationship with the BAM team.”
