Coming soon: The London Construction Programme Major Work 2019 Framework Agreement

 

Procurement Pipeline:  LCP Replacement Major Work Framework

LCP is planning to put in place a new Major Works Framework for the delivery of housing, education & leisure, capital projects, historical & heritage and highway & public realm projects to be utilised by members of the London Construction Programme (LCP).The new framework will replace the existing arrangement which expires in May 2019.

The new framework will be pan-London and cover projects ranging in value from £1m to more than £20m.

The procurement is proposed to be setup using the Open Procedure under the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 to deliver a simplified pan- London framework of accessible contractors covering a wide range of works and services which is easy to use for the end user.

We will update this page at each stage of the project.
