The YORbuild2 framework was set up by a team made up of procurement and legal professionals from each of the contracting authorities on the framework.

These authorities have years of experience of establishing and managing frameworks and partnering arrangements.

Procurement process

Lessons learned from previous frameworks helped inform YORbuild2. Its creation included:

  • Compliance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2006
  • Rigorous quality checking
  • Consideration of case law relating to frameworks
  • The independent witnessing of tender opening
  • Firms appointed on the basis of 50% price/50% quality

Price assessment was based on:

  • Tendered fee percentages (overheads and profit)
  • Design on-cost (lots 3, 4, 5 and 7 only)
  • Schedule of rates for equipment/plant, site accommodation, people

Quality assessment based on:

  • Operations management (people/programme/health and safety/BIM/contractors design/housing best practice)
  • Social responsibility (employment and skills plan and method statement/local economy)
  • Sustainability (carbon reduction)
  • Supply chain management (SCM performance and management)
