RCKa appointed to LHC Multi-Disciplinary Framework

RCKa is delighted to be one of only a small handful of practices to have been appointed to the LHC MDC1 framework, a Public Contracts Regulations 2015-compliant route to appointment for professional services.

Covering the south-east of England, excluding London, the MDC1 framework allows for a variety of procurement routes, including mini-competition and direct award. In place for the next six years, the framework is open to any public body in the region which wishes to use it.

Unusually for a public sector procurement, the assessment method was heavily weighted towards design quality, with financial assessments made on the basis of “closest to mean” scoring.
