The West of England Combined Authority, in collaboration with Bristol City Council, North Somerset Council, South Gloucestershire Council and Bath and North East Somerset Council, is leading a procurement process to establish a four-year Professional Services Framework Agreement to support our regional Infrastructure projects.
The core authorities party to this Framework Agreement are:
West of England Combined Authority – Lead Authority
Bath and North East Somerset Council
Bristol City Council
North Somerset Council
South Gloucestershire Council
The estimated spend value for these authorities over the term of the Framework Agreement is between £24m-£35m.
The Framework Agreement will also be open to the following authorities, who may utilise the Framework Agreement to supplement any existing arrangements, if required
Bournemouth Christchurch and Poole Council
Cornwall Council (County Unitary)
Devon County Council
Dorset County Council
Gloucestershire County Council
Plymouth City Council
Borough of Poole
Somerset County Council
Swindon Borough Council
Wiltshire County Council (County Unitary)
The spend value of these authorities is expected to be in the region of £5m.
The Framework Agreement will have a single, multidisciplinary Lot, and will be limited to three Suppliers (except in the unlikely event that two Suppliers are within 1% of winning third place, in which case we reserve the right to include a fourth Supplier)
The Framework Agreement will operate on the basis of direct award and further competition.
