Gleeds has been appointed to the Crown Commercial Service’s £1.7 billion Construction Professional Services (CPS) framework under a four-year agreement

International property and construction consultancy Gleeds has been appointed to the Crown Commercial Service’s £1.7 billion Construction Professional Services (CPS) framework, encompassing the Built Environment and General Infrastructure, Urban Regeneration and Defence.

The CPS framework is the UK’s largest public sector system, replacing the Project Management and Full Design Team Services framework, on which Gleeds was also previously appointed. 

It was developed to support the Crown Commercial Service in offering public sector customers access to a compliant and effective procurement route for their property and construction projects. Those appointed will now be called upon to provide organisations with broad strategic advice and innovative solutions across a range of disciplines and functions.

The agreement will run for a four-year period, with schemes falling under the expanded scope of Lot 1 expected to include major multi-disciplinary programmes serving all public sector clients, while those under Lot 2 will cover social infrastructure, land development and projects for the leisure and tourism sectors. Lot 5 has been specifically designed to serve the complex needs of the Ministry of Defence and Defence Infrastructure Organisation.

Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2020/21, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits equal to £2.04bn - supporting leading public services that offer best value for taxpayers.

Group executive director Douglas McCormick said: "Our offering under Lot 1 has expanded in line with its new, broader scope and our appointment will allow us to continue to deliver innovative, efficient solutions which represent real value for money for a cross section of public sector clients.

"The CPS is widely considered to be the “gold standard” in public sector procurement for project management and design team services, so we are thrilled that our expertise and industry leading net zero carbon credentials have been recognised.”

In a recent post, the Crown Commercial Service highlighted the benefits of going digital.
