Our ICN 2020 contractors

The Innovation Chain North (ICN) framework has 29 contractors across 12 contractor lots. The successful contractors were awarded a place on the framework following a robust procurement exercise which evaluated suppliers on their technical competence, price and commitment to social value.

Due to the success of the previous ICNW frameworks, we received a substantial number of high quality bids from contractors wanting to secure a place on the new framework. The bids were evaluated as follows and the process included model answers, dual marking and moderation for all questions:

Price 60%

Quality 30%

Social Value 10%

Our ICN 2020 Contractor lots

The traditional construction lots (H1 & H2; L1 – L6) are divided into two value bandings and are further subdivided geographically across the North West and North East geographies.

The modular principle contractor lots (P1 & P2) and the groundworker lots (G1 & G2) do not have a value banding and are simply divided geographically between the North West and North East.
