Framework Agreement Arrangements

Hertfordshire County Council has successfully re-procured 2 new Property Framework Agreements which start on 1st April 2015.  They will provide the Authority, and a number of other local public sector bodies including schools, with access to a wide range of property maintenance, management and construction services.

The 2 new Frameworks were re-procured through an Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) process and consist of:

  • Property Works Framework– repairs, adaptations, refurbishments, extensions, asbestos removal, demolition, and supply and installation of portable buildings.
  • Property Consultancy Framework– property, estates and specialist consultancy and construction related design and project management.

Suppliers who were successful in the re-procurement of the new Property Frameworks are arranged into Lots.  To view a list of the suppliers on each Lot please see Consultants and Works.

There are no guaranteed volumes or values of works attached to the Framework Agreements, and the authorities named as users of the frameworks have no obligation to use it.
