Procurement of our principal supply chain members happened before signing of the Territory Partnering Agreement in 2010, with the pre-qualification, competitive tendering and selection of potential supply chain members, including construction contractors, designers, FM and specialist advisors eg legal.

Our three Tier 1 construction contractors are BAM Construction, Morrison Construction and Balfour Beatty.

Each Tier 1 was appointed after a thorough and robust selection process which involved evidencing a track record in delivering quality facilities and providing value for money, but importantly, as it is a key driver for the Hub programme, each Tier 1 was selected after demonstrating they were committed to delivering community benefits on all projects.

Projects awarded to Tier 1 contractors are competitively tendered and independently assessed. Public sector clients are involved in the appointment and selection process of Tier 1 Contractors and consultants. This is done transparently using a consolidated scoring system.

We regularly review the suitability of supply chain members to provide services in relation to each project taking into account the availability of resources and the ability to provide satisfactory performance management, continuous improvement and appropriate levels of service throughout the development and delivery of projects.
