Government FM contracting procurement model milestones announcedFebruary 2014

The Facilities Management Contracting Model (FMCM) Team from the Government Procurement Service has updated its plans for FMCM Procurement of government and wider public sector FM contracting.

The procurement has evolved as a result of the extensive stakeholder engagement undertaken over the past few months and the need to support the creation of two separate procurement vehicles -
a Facilities Management (FM) framework, which is intended for large scale, nationwide requirements, and a Marketplace designed to address specialist FM needs, typically (but not exclusively), delivered on a regional/local basis.As a result of the work necessary to establish the new model, the timescales previously communicated to stakeholders have been revised and it is now planned to separate the framework and marketplace procurement exercises.

The current anticipated milestone dates are:

FM framework:

  • OJEU publication – mid August 2014
  • Bidders conference – early September 2014
  • Intention to award – December 2014
  • Go Live - February 2015

Marketplace

  • OJEU publication – mid October
  • Award – To be confirmed

BSRIA will continue to keep Members informed of key milestones as the FMCM procurement progresses.  In the meantime, if you have any queries please contact FMCM@ccs.gsi.gov.uk direct.
