National Procurement Service framework updates.
Property consultancy DPS
We are evaluating the tender responses and anticipate that the DPS will be available for use from1 August 2019. User guidance will be available on Sell2Wales.
Construction consultancy infrastructure and estates and facilities and additional services
Both of these frameworks have been extended by six months to 31 March 2020 and 30 June 2020 respectively. We intend to continue to cover these services and will be looking for interested parties to feed into the procurement process in the coming months. If you are interested, please contact NPSProfessionalservices@gov.wales
Legal services by solicitors
The current framework agreement expires 31 August 2019. It has been necessary to delay procurement activities so that the future recommendations of The Commission on Justice in Wales can be considered. We are looking at options to ensure continuity of service to customers in the interim.
We have continued to engage with the legal community in the Welsh public sector on the renewal, and intend to engage with the supply base in the autumn.
A customer focus group (CFG) has been set up consisting of Welsh public sector legal and procurement representatives. If you would like to get involved with this group or have any queries regarding the delay in the renewal of this framework, please contact NPSProfessionalServices@gov.wales
Legal training and briefing events
The new schedule of training and events for July – December 2019 provided by firms on the legal services by solicitors’ framework is now accessible to buying organisations on Sell2Wales.
