JV North is currently managing a four-year contractors’ and consultants’ framework – the latest chapter in its 10-year history of delivering social housing that has seen it build one home a day with the Homes and Communities Agency since 2007.

In July 2017, JV North announced the successful applicants for stage one with works valued at £1 million and over. See here for full details.

The second stage is now open and for the first time, SME contractors are invited to apply using the Dynamic Purchasing System for works up to £1 million.

SMEs can apply to join at any time throughout the four-year framework (until 2021) via the In-Tend procurement portal.

JV North is investing more than £480 million to build over 3,000 homes under the HCA’s 2016/21 Shared Ownership Affordable Homes Programme.

Based on previous experience it is anticipated circa 2,000 of these properties will be delivered through this new framework.

The new framework is valued at £180 million and will run until June 2021.
