SWWRCF - South West Wales Regional Contractors Framework

SWWRCF2020 is the third iteration of the South West Wales Regional Contractors Framework (SWWRCF) and is a collaborative arrangement led and managed by Carmarthenshire County Council on behalf of the South West Wales regional Local Authorities (Ceredigion County Council, Neath Port Talbot County Council, Pembrokeshire County Council and Swansea Council). With a pool of both local and national, highly experienced and qualified contractors, it provides a competitive procurement platform and solution to public sector construction works from £0+. 

The SWWRCF2020 commenced on the 1st February 2020 and will run for 4 years until 31st January 2024. The Framework has been established in accordance with the requirements of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 and is for the provision of Construction related activities.

There are six key aims and objectives of the SWWRCF 2020 strategy. The key Issues included in the Strategy are as follows:

- Promote the inclusion and contribution of SMEs as Framework Suppliers, with emphasis on local supply provision
- Increase and maintain Minimum Standards to support Growth of Contractors across South West Wales Region
- Support best practice and continuous improvement amongst both employers, contractors and suppliers in the South West Wales Region
- Secure improvement to the built environment through delivery of best value
- Promote the use of modern methods of construction and innovative construction techniques
- Ensure value for money for both client and contractors

The vision of the SWWRCF Framework is to develop mutually beneficial collaborative contractual arrangements with private sector contractors. In doing so we strive to integrate public and private sector skills in delivering construction projects, ensure competitive compliant procurement exercises, to promote and champion continuous improvement and embed these.  

SWWRCF is committed to maximising Community Benefits across the South West Wales Region and has embedded the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act (2015) within the framework and subsequent awards under the framework. This will help support and foster best value, continuous improvement and support the delivery of socially responsible procurement benefiting social, economic, environmental, and cultural wellbeing across the region.

As part of the National Association of Construction Frameworks (NACF) SWWRCF are able to help contribute to the future of the national procurement strategy on a UK wide basis, sharing best practice with members and wider public sector frameworks of similar nature, which is of benefit to both employers, contractors and the general public. 

The framework is open to vast number of employers and public sector agencies across the regions all of which are listed in the comprehensive SWWRCF framework guide.
