Governance & Transformation & Business, Innovation, Employment & Skills Cabinet Member – Minutes – 26 September 2016

1  (1)  CONSTRUCTION FRAMEWORK ANNUAL REVIEW 2016/17 – The Director of Policy and Resources and Director of Places submitted a joint report which set out the outcome of the second annual performance review of the council’s integrated Construction and Highways Framework Arrangement.

In June 2014 the council awarded an integrated framework arrangement for the delivery of all construction and highways related works.  The design of the framework provided for formal annual performance reviews to help ensure that it delivered value for money and continuous improvement over its four year life.

The framework was structured as lots, which were identified within the report.

The report confirmed that to date, the total spend through the framework was £36m.  Projects included construction and highways related projects including road maintenance schemes, schools and other essential facilities for local communities.

To help manage performance, key indicators were used set against UK Construction Industry standards.  The targets set for contractors on the framework were within the top 10% of industry standards as published in the UK Industry Performance Report (CITB/BIS).  The latest Key Performance Indicators results for completed projects were set out in Appendix 1 to the report.

Resolved – That the findings from the second annual performance review of the Construction and Highways Framework be noted.
