Shortlist for new £4bn schools framework revealed

Breaking: The Education Funding Agency has shortlisted a total of 15 contractors to tender for its new £4bn contractors frameworks.

Thirteen contractors have been invited to tender for each of the framework lots, for sector North and sector South.

Overall, 11 contractors have been selected to compete for both lots of the framework.

After missing out on the current contractors’ framework, Bowmer and Kirkland, Galliford Try, Mace and Thomas Vale Construction will compete to win places on the new framework.

Incumbent contractors Lend Lease, JB Leadbitter & Co, Rydon Group and Apollo Property Services have not been invited to re-tender.

From the shortlist, the EFA intends to select nine contractors for each lot to deliver school building work – a decrease from 12 on each lot of the current framework.

The four-year framework will be used by the EFA, academy trusts and local authorities to select construction partners for the delivery of capital building projects, including the remaining 137 capital-funded schools to be delivered through the Priority School Building Programme.

The existing contractors’ framework is due to expire in November this year and it is understood that the new framework will come into effect from early 2014.

Sector North covers the North-west, North-east, Yorkshire and Humber, East Midlands and West Midlands.

Sector South includes the East of England, South-east, South-west and London.
