Southern Construction Framework

The Southern Construction Framework (SCF) new framework launches in April 2019, following 3 preceding frameworks.  This is a single framework with three lots; South West (lot 1), South East (Lot 2), and London (Lot 3).

SCF is a collaboration between Devon County Council and Hampshire County Council, that offers support with construction procurement to public sector organisations throughout London, the South East and the South West. SCF has three lots, with ISG taking a place on all three lots.

The framework helps public sector bodies to achieve a fast route to market, that is OJEU compliant and cost effective.
