Framework agreement with several operators Duration of the framework agreement Duration in years: 4 years with an option to extend by a further 2 years Justification for a framework agreement, the duration of which exceeds four years: a) Return on Investment. The strategic approach to health estates management is long term. This framework requires the creation and maintenance of accredited, stable and integrated supply chains and support consultants that require considerable operator investment to establish. A sufficient framework duration is essential to attract and encourage the construction and consultancy effort needed to meet policy standards. b) Scheme duration. Capital investment for the NHS largely consists of the building or refurbishment/redevelopment of clinical and specialist facilities. From the start of design and completion these schemes can easily take three years. The framework should exist for a period that runs until the completion of schemes started from its mid point to ensure that the NHS economy gets its return on the investment made in creating, letting and managing the Framework Agreement. Estimated total value of purchases for the entire duration of the framework agreement Estimated value excluding VAT: Range: between 105 540 000 and 343 000 000 GBP
