Four months after more than 50 contractors received pre-qualification questionnaires, the Department of Health announced the successful bidders for its £4 billion ProCure21+ framework.

ProCure21+ was due to take over from Procure21 on 12 September 2010, however, this was delayed following the May 2010 election. ProCure21+ framework commenced on 1 October 2010. ProCure21+ uses NEC 3.

For those working in the NHS more information about ProCure21+ and NEC3 can be found on our Healthcare Resource Centre at www.millsreeve. com/hrc
