The NHS is seeking architectural, engineering and urban planning contractors to upgrade energy and carbon infrastructure across its facilities and those of its trusts around the UK.
The framework, anticipated to provide work to 30 firms, is worth between £200m and £1bn, and will run for four years.
Services may also be required by “all public sector facilities in England, Wales, Scotland or Northern Ireland” across the entire public sector, including local authorities.
Experienced service providers with “proven project management and technical track record and skill” are sought to “re-provide” energy and energy management facilities.
The previous framework is to halt as the new framework takes its first project in July this year. All companies will be asked to participate in a mini-competition for each project.
Projects may be multi-site and multi-agency. Lot One is for any project under £2m, while Lot Two is for projects above £4m.
Firms have until noon on the 22 March to bid. Interested parties can contact FAO Debbie Metcalfe, NHS Shared Business Services Ltd (NHS SBS), Halyard Court, 31 Broadway, The Quay, Salford, M50 2UW, by phone on 01612 123735, by fax on 01612 123709, or by email on email@example.com
