Project assignment: our 'dynamic consortia' model
This framework can be used in tandem with our DPS: If a significant part of a project will be sub-contracted, the framework supplier may assign it in whole or part to their specialist approved contractor registered on the DPS, who then contracts with the client and delivers the project.
This approach has been specially designed with flat roofing installations in mind, where where clients need the system supplier directly involved throughout, from pre-installation design to post-project warranty. but where the system is typically installed by their approved contractor, who manages all on-site operations and is thus better suited to contract directly with the client.
Historically suppliers and contractors would have to form a consortium in advance of a framework bid, which is not only cumbersome and time consuming to assemble in advance of any project being awarded, but also limits the potential for clients to select the most suitable contractor when each project arises.
Our approach, where consortia develop dynamically, as and when approved contractors are vetted and join the DPS, assures optimum efficiency and compliance from procurement through delivery, and enables clients to bind both system supplier and contractor in the delivery of the project.
If you want your budget spent on your property, not procurement, B2G offers a compliant, cost effective solution.

Suppliers & Lots
proven capability, nationwide
FRS22 is a single lot framework covering all parts of the UK, within which each Supplier can designate (and update) their active regions and preferred project value ceilings and floors. Buyers may restrict invitations and Suppliers decline invitations based on those preferences. However, Buyers retain the right to invite and contract with any Supplier to deliver services anywhere in the 'lot' (ie. the UK) and Suppliers retain the right to deliver services for any Buyer anywhere in the 'lot' (ie. the UK).
This innovative approach delivers optimum procurement efficiency and minimum carbon footprint to the benefit of all parties.

Call Off Process
flexible and efficient
Buyers can award a contract direct to any supplier confident they will deliver to a quality that meets or exceeds all regulations and standards, at a competitive price, and in full support of the Public Services (Social Value) Act 2012, thus generating both commercial AND social value - embodying the principles of MEAT.
The Buyer registers the project with B2G - document can be downloaded from this website
The Buyer has three options, and may apply their own criteria or weightings, subject to ensuring that any action taken is transparent, non-discriminatory and fair.
Direct Award to a Supplier, who nominates one approved contractor who is registered on the B2G DPS.
Direct award & Mini-Competition:
Direct Award to a Supplier, in tandem with a mini-competition between a shortlist of the Supplier's approved contractors who are registered on the B2G DPS.
Mini Competition between Suppliers, each bid comprising a Supplier and their nominee approved contractor who is registered on the B2G DPS.
In each case, if a significant part of the Project is to be sub-contracted to their approved contractor registered on the B2G DPS, then the Supplier may assign the Project or part thereof to their approved contractor and the Buyer may then contract directly with the approved contractor (the assignee 'Supplier') under the B2G DPS to deliver those works, supplies and or services, under the auspices of the framework systems supplier, and compliant with the specification, standards and regulations set out in the framework documents.
The Buyer contracts the Supplier - be it the system Supplier under the framework or the assignee Supplier under the DPS - using the JCT/SBCC, NEC and/or PPC/FAC/TAC suites of contracts or Pre-Contract Service Agreements (PCSA) or the Buyer’s modified version of such standard forms.
The project is delivered by the Supplier/s according to the agreed KPIs and terms and - for the avoidance of doubt, whether self-performed or assigned - compliant with the specification, standards and regulations set out in the framework documents. B2G monitors the project.
Price increases (including for materials) can be applied in line with either BCIS (Building Cost Information Service) or RPI (Retail Price Index) or CPI (Consumer Price Index) using ONS (Office of National Statistics) data and applying the Framework’s month of launch as the base index.
community benefit comes as standard
As a requirement for being appointed to the framework every bidder confirmed their willingness to deliver all the measures set out in the Considerate Constructors Scheme's Social Value Checklist which, depending on the size and nature of the Project and the needs of the local community, might include:
Full & part time; apprenticeships; work experience
Local sub-contractors, suppliers, social enterprises, NGOs & charities
Supplies & equipment
Locally manufactured; reused or recycled; or sustainably sourced
Educational (eg. engaging with local schools & colleges etc); social (eg. engaging with local clubs & charities etc); or environmental (eg. litter patrol & work parties etc)

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) was published on 8 August 2022; the Contract Notice (CN) was published on 22 November 2022; and the Contract Award Notice (CAN) was released for publication on 10 March 2023.
10 requests for the ITT documentation were received. A submission date extension was requested and granted, extending the deadline from 31 December 2022 to 31 January 2023, to take account of the fact that many manufacturers shut down and/or reduce operations over the Christmas and New Year period. All active were participants notified, and the framework webpage was also updated with the new submission date. 5 bids were received on or before 11pm on 31 January 2023. No late submissions were received.
Our objective was to assure competent suppliers and competitive rates. We set the bar accordingly high. Each section of the bid document was scored separately, and weighted as follows:
This section is pass/fail. Standard Questions were based on PAS91 & ESPD format, covering company and financial standing, the latter evaluation based on financial accounts and insurance certificates submitted with each bid, and full independent financial reports from Veriphy, including current credit status, with emphasis placed on proven sustained profitability and a positive current ratio. Nevertheless, and for the avoidance of doubt, since our check only relates to each Bidder's financial standing at the time of the evaluation, buying authorities are responsible for carrying out their own due diligence for each call off project.
This section is pass/fail. Social Value support by all bidders was confirmed across four categories of measures (in accordance with the Social Value Checklist developed by the Considerate Constructors Scheme) covering local employment, supply chain, supplies and equipment, and community engagement.
This section was weighted 50%. For Quality the focus was to assure competency and proven experience, with a focus on third party certification and case studies. Because each bidder was presenting projects undertaken for different buyers, it was unfair to score bids against one another, due to the lack of a common point of reference. Consequently top rank is shared by all Suppliers not excluded by the above criteria.
This section was weighted 50%. We adhere to the principles of the UK.gov Should Cost Model, with a focus on achieving competitive sustainable pricing and avoiding a race to the bottom. Bidders submit OHP% and standard service item costs. We evaluate each line item rate separately rather than comparing the basket of each bid, and bids may be excluded if their rates are consistently higher or lower than any other bid. Top rank is shared by all Suppliers not excluded by the above criteria.
Pursuant to Clause 87 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 preliminary award notices were issued to 5 bidders on 28 February 2023, each of whom share top rank for quality, price and VFM, and can each therefore be direct awarded to any project, by any contracting authority, anywhere in the UK. A period of standstill ran through to midnight at the end of 10 March 2023. No challenges were received, and consequently Award Confirmations were sent to each bidder.
