Tenders for construction projects of up to £80 million worth will be sought by Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust, it has been announced.
The four-year framework, which has been expected to start from April 2010, will cover individual projects in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and surrounding counties.
Up to six economic operators could be invited to submit their tenders for the projects, out of which one or more will be appointed. The appointments are expected to be announced in March 2010.
Ahead of the formal selection process, the trust will hold an Open Day on October 6, that will include two separate identical sessions.
The trust will also issue a contract notice in Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) around 19 October.
