National Procurement Service framework updates.
The following frameworks will remain active until September and October 2019:
- NPS-PS-0027- infrastructure and estates
- NPS-PS-0028- facilities and additional services
We will continue to cover these services moving forward and their scope will be considered as part of the new approach.
Following careful consideration of risk, we took the decision to annul the procurement for a new property consultancy framework.
We considered feedback received from suppliers during the standstill period and sought independent legal advice. This followed identification of an anomaly in the treatment of a question which would have had an impact across the disciplines we were awarding.
We will plan a full re-tender as soon as possible and use the feedback secured from the annulled tender to shape any new approach.
In the interim, we have identified an alternative procurement route. You will need to review this offering to ensure that it is suitable for your specific requirements. Further information is available on Crown Commercial Services.
This route will expire on 2 May 2020 with the possibility of a 12 month extension.
Alternatively, you could undertake your own arrangements to appoint contractors following your organisational financial instructions.

Legal services by solicitors
The current framework expires later this year. We have been engaging with the legal community in the Welsh public sector on its renewal, and intend to continue engagement with the wider supply base over the coming months.
