Procurement team

Procuring through the YORconsult2 framework is straightforward, safe and sustainable.

That’s because it was set up by a team made up of procurement, asset management 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 YORconsult2. Its creation included:

  • Compliance with The Public Contracts Regulations 2015
  • Rigorous quality checking and due diligence
  • Consideration of case law relating to frameworks
  • The Tender opening was conducted electronically
  • Firms assessed first against minimum standards then on price (60%) and quality (40%)

Price assessment was based on:

  • Percentage Fee Element (for building projects)
  • Hourly Staff Rates
  • On-cost
  • Multiplier
  • Refurbishment Uplift
  • Lead Designer Uplift
  • Principal Designer Uplift
  • Additions for Tender Document Preparation
  • Additions for Project Management / Contract Administration / Employers Agent Roles

Quality assessment based on:

  • People
  • Potential to manage and control costs and progress on call-off projects
  • BIM / Soft Landings
  • Employment and Skills Method Statement
  • Framework Management
