Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo.

National framework provider Pagabo has revealed the 47 suppliers appointed to its new £545m Mechanical & Electrical Solutions Framework. 

A range of specialist M&E contractors including Livingston Building Services and TClarke Contracting have been appointed to the new framework, which will run for four years and has been designed as a solutions-based offering to complement Pagabo’s wider suite of frameworks.

The framework is split into three lots, with eight core and four reserve suppliers per lot, per region. 

•Lot 1 – Mechanical Works

•Lot 2 – Electrical Works

•Lot 3 – Mechanical and Electrical Works 

Each lot contains four value-banded sub lots. 

•£50,000 to £500,000

•£500,000 to £1m

•£1m to £3m

•£3m and above

Jason Stapley, chief procurement officer at Pagabo, said: “We’re always looking to respond to the needs of our clients and connect them with the best and most suitable suppliers in the market, which is exactly what our new M&E framework will achieve. We’re looking forward to seeing the range of work procured through this framework and the support in which it will give to many types of organisation. 

“Framework users will be able to appoint suppliers via direct award or further competition, to provide flexibility. As with all of our frameworks, there are a number of places reserved for SMEs. In this agreement, 74% of appointments have been awarded to SMEs, which when combined with the regional breakdown ensures fair access for the most appropriate organisations, excellent choice for clients and maximum positive social value for communities.” 

The framework will be available nationally and be split into 12 UK regions. It will be open for all types of public sector organisations to procure through, including but not limited to, local authorities, blue light services, housing associations, healthcare, education, aviation, rail, nuclear, highways and infrastructure.

To fully embed social value into the heart of all procurement activity from the outset of projects, all appointed suppliers and clients will have access to a free version of Loop’s social value calculation tool for Pagabo procured projects.

Cumbria, Northumberland, and Tyne and Wear NHS (CNTW) is the contracting authority for the new agreement, having also held the same role for Pagabo’s Major Works and Developer-Led frameworks.
