Constructionline used to vet firms for £4bn ProCure21+ framework

Constructionline, the UK’s largest register of pre-qualified contractors will be used to vet contractors vying for a place on the ProCure21+ framework

The Department of Health’s will use the register – a public private partnership between the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills and Capita Business Services – in order to avoid the duplication of pre-qualification questionnaire (PQQ) assessment that has already been conducted.

All contractors submitting an expression of interest for the six-year health capital investment framework will need to provide a Constructionline registration number and will then be issued with the memorandum of information and a set of questions specific to ProCure21+.

The DoH issued an OJEU notice for the six-year health capital investment framework,earlier this month, through which it expects to spend up to £750 million per year.

Constructionline says there has been a 60 per cent growth in new registrations by contractors during the first three months of 2009, as public sector funded work continues to provide a respite from the recession for many contractors.

Matt Kearsley, client relationship manager from Constructionline, said: “A large and complex framework like ProCure21+ would normally place a huge administrative burden on both those applying and the procurement team in DoH.

“However, using our system as a filter eliminates the need for Constructionline registered firms to submit substantial amounts of information and allows the DoH to focus on delivering quality in its selection process.”
