Construction, facilities management and utilities news round-up

Framework updates.

New construction building materials framework

Please help us develop a new construction building materials framework which meets your needs.

We are looking for members of a new Category Forum Group (CFG) to guide us. We anticipate the framework will go live during the second quarter of 2019.

The scope of the new arrangement is to be finalised with customer input. It is likely to include lots that are covered in the current general building materials and the electrical heating and plumbing frameworks. Our initial work covers;

  • managed service
  • general building materials
  • timber and sheet materials
  • doors
  • decorative products
  • electrical fittings, cable, lighting and accessories (excluding street lighting)
  • heating, ventilation, boilers and associated products
  • plumbing, sanitary ware and rainwater goods

If you want more information, have any suggestions for the framework or would like to join the CFG, please email NPSConstructionFM@gov.wales.

Electrical, heating and plumbing

At the request of our customers, we have extended the framework for 12 months until September 2019.

The framework was due to expire on 27 September this year.

Cleaning and janitorial materials extension

Following customer feedback we have extended the cleaning and janitorial materials framework for a further 12 months until 20 September 2019.
