The Contracting Authority intends to establish a framework agreement for all of Northern Ireland which will set out the headline terms under which a minimum of 5 and up to a maximum of 9 economic operators will be appointed according to their tender scores (as more particularly described in the tender documentation).

The services required under the framework agreement consist of multi discipline construction related professional services substantially in relation to the following types of planned maintenance and improvement schemes (which will mainly be carried out to the dwellings and property of the Housing Executive but such work may on occasions include work to offices, private dwellings and private property).
