Opportunities for local contractors to apply for construction works with Highland Council. (31/05/12)
The Highland Council is currently in the process of renewing its Contractors Framework agreement, which will be used by Services within the Council for selecting contractors to carry out construction works covering reactive day to day repairs, general maintenance works and minor projects up to an increased value of £50,000.
The Council has written to all contractors who are part of the current £25k Contractors Framework to give them advance notice of the new framework being advertised.
This new agreement, which will commence on the 3rd September 2012, will cover a three year programme but will be re-opened and re-advertised at six monthly intervals to provide the opportunity for new contractors to apply.
Local contractors who are not on the Council’s current framework are being invited to apply to join the Council’s new framework.
The framework details and application forms will be advertised on www.publiccontractsscotland.gov.uk from 28th May 2012 and the Council recommends that contractors register with this website if they have not already done so.
Paper applications for the new contractors’ framework can also be obtained from The Highland Council on Tel: 01463 702209 - Monday to Friday 9pm -5pm.
Expressions of interest close on 11 July 2012 and completed application forms must be submitted by 16 July 2012.
