The North Wales Best Practice Club in association with Constructing Excellence in Wales presents :

An Initial Peer Review for the CEW Demonstration Programme

This is your opportunity to learn how the North and Mid Wales Trunk Road Agencies in partnership with Gwynedd Consultancy set out to engage with the business community to help shape their forthcoming strategic framework agreement for highway works.

Framework agreements have been around for quite a while now. Loved by some, unloved by others. There’s no doubt though that lessons have been learnt over the years and continue to be learnt. The truth is well structured framework agreements can be a great way for public and private sectors to work together in long term, collaborative relationships to maximise value from investment, maximise social benefits and achieve positive environmental outcomes. However getting the ‘right’ framework depends on understanding the local market place and how it can best respond to client requirements.

This innovative practice is being put forward as part of the Constructing Excellence in Wales Demonstration Programme so that others can judge for themselves the benefits that will, hopefully, accrue from the decision to engage with local businesses.

Further reviews will be held over the next 12-18 months to describe how the framework is delivering against its stated objectives

 Who should attend?

  • Clients and procurers – to learn how early engagement with the supply chain can help shape a procurement strategy to deliver greater value
  • Contractors and Consultants – to better understand how their input to  a consultation process can positively support clients and procurers in developing their procurement strategies
