Following a rigorous competitive tendering process conducted by the Government Procurement Service (GPS), Nabarro has been appointed to the Framework Agreement within four Lots for UK public sector work: Employment & Pensions, Finance and Regulation, Litigation, and Major Projects.
The Framework Agreement will cover central government contracts valued at more than £100,000 with the total value of the framework expected to be worth in the region of £250m over a period of up to four years.
Nabarro appears on the Major Projects panel for the first time recognising its expertise in this area and its strategic decision to focus on infrastructure as a key sector for the firm. The financial sector is also a key, growing sector for the firm and a successful bid for the Finance and Regulation panel is seen as another important win.
Tim Shaw, projects partner at Nabarro in Sheffield, commented:
"Retaining our position on these important panels is testament to the strength of what the firm as a whole has to offer the public sector. It's particularly pleasing to win a place on the Major Projects panel. I am sure that the depth and breadth of our work for central and local government over the years will put is an excellent position to pitch successfully for work generated by GPS framework."
Nabarro has acted extensively for central government including: the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, the Department for Energy and Climate Change, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Department of Health, the Foreign Office and the Treasury Solicitor. It has also acted for a wide range of local authorities throughout England and Wales including Sheffield, Barnsley, Basingstoke, Ealing, East Riding, Kent, Medway, Wandsworth and Westminster.
