London Borough of
Hammersmith & Fulham
Local Supply Chain Event
Tuesday 21 July 2009
Outstanding Opportunities Delivered Through Partnership
Thank you for attending our Local Supply Chain Event today. We are delighted
you could join us. In Hammersmith & Fulham we are excited by the prospect of
transforming education within our borough. We hope to secure up to £175
million of funding both from the government and from our own resources, to
enhance the life chances of young people. This is a one-off opportunity to build
upon our continuing success. This investment will make a huge difference to our
schools and the outcomes for both pupils and the wider community.
We have just had our Strategy for Change, Part Two (SfC2) accepted by
government. SfC2 sets out ‘how’ we intend to transform the educational
experience for children and young people in the borough. This now gives us a
green light to proceed with our Outline Business Case (OBC). We intend to
submit our OBC in the Autumn.
We will then enter into the procurement phase, the outcome of which will be the
selection of a suitable partner with whom we can form a long standing
partnership to deliver our programme.
Education is a key passport for young people and for the whole community. We
consider it paramount that we find the right private sector partner with whom we
can work to turn our educational vision into a reality. We will put all bidders
through a rigorous selection procedure designed to ensure we make the right
In turn we expect our private sector partner to develop a supply chain who will
work with them to deliver our BSF programme. It is essential that we deliver on
time and within budget.
We want to ensure that local businesses in and around our borough appreciate
and understand the opportunities that our BSF programme may offer to them as
part of an LEP integrated supply chain.
We hope that by the time you leave us today you will understand how we are
procuring a private sector partner for our BSF programme and how they will
develop a supply chain. I cannot guarantee that you will be chosen but I hope
this morning’s event will provide you with the knowledge and information that
places you in a strong position to become part of a supply chain.
I look forward to meeting you!

Advice to Local Suppliers
We are currently preparing our Outline Business Case in readiness to issuing our OJEU
notice in November 2009. At this point the private sector becomes involved within the
procurement phase. In line with the standard BSF procurement approach we will be
seeking a private sector partner who will form an integral part of our Local Education
Partnership, the procuring body for the Hammersmith & Fulham BSF programme.
The LEP will be responsible for developing a supply chain to deliver the programme, it is
envisaged that suppliers will form part of that supply chain, the LEP will be responsible for
the supply chain appointments. You will need to approach the LEP body once it is formed
to see how you can assist with the development programme. It is anticipated that
construction work will begin during the Summer of 2011.
For further information please look at the Partnerships for Schools website where more
information is available for suppliers. www.partnershipsforschools.org.uk
We will update our BSF website regularly www.lbhf.gov.uk/bsf with full details of our BSF
programme and its developments. We have also noted your details and will keep you
informed of future developments that may concern you.
Neighbouring local authorities that already have confirmed BSF Programmes:
Kensington & Chelsea
Other local authorities are expected to join the BSF programme at a later date.

We have taken this information from Partnerships for Schools website and hope it
may be useful to you. We also recommend that you look at their helpful website:
Partnerships for Schools (PfS) is the non-departmental public body set up to deliver
Building Schools for the Future. Its key role is to ensure that investment in secondary
schools is based on robust educational strategies and that BSF schools and Academies
are well designed, are built on time at a reasonable cost to the taxpayer, and are properly
maintained over their lifetime.
PfS helps to build strong Public Private Partnerships (PPPs), enabling the public sector to
benefit from the best skills and expertise available in the private sector and reaping greater
efficiencies and economies of scale.
BSF is a real opportunity to showcase innovative, inspirational design and to demonstrate
how it can impact on education standards and the quality of life within schools. Across the
whole programme, we are looking for high-quality, sustainable projects and services.
Successful partners will be those that are able to demonstrate an understanding of the
broader requirements of local communities and supply chains.
Schools that are being rebuilt or refurbished under BSF – which will affect every secondary
school and local authority in England over the lifetime of the programme – have
considerable influence over which products and services are procured with their BSF
funding. This ranges from planning the overall design and ICT infrastructure to choosing
furniture and sports equipment. Companies of all sizes, both with established reputations
and new, should therefore market themselves directly to local authorities. This could be on
a national basis, through journals and events, or locally through networking events or
A list of the current supply chains to BSF projects that have reached financial close is
available to download on the PfS website. Companies that may be involved with
networking events for BSF and schools renewal are also listed on the website.
For direct contact, the PfS website contains a list of the local authorities that are currently
engaged on the BSF programme. Each local authority will have a BSF team running the
project, and may well feature local BSF news and information about schools and
shortlisted bidders on their websites. This website has links to the BSF pages of local
It is also worth noting that BSF is not the only current source of schools funding. The
Primary Capital Programme, which is rebuilding and refurbishing primary schools all over
England, and the One School pathfinder funding that targets schools in local authorities
that are not yet engaged on BSF all offer opportunities to be involved in the education

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Building Schools for the Future (BSF)?
Building Schools for the Future (BSF) is part of the government’s national programme to
transform education standards for secondary aged students.
All secondary schools and special schools with secondary provision are expected to
review their curriculum and organisation to help drive up standards. A key strand of the
BSF programme is government funding to support capital investment to rebuild or
refurbish all state secondary schools and provide new Information and Communications
Technology (ICT) systems in all schools over a 15-year period.
We aim to give parents a wider choice of schools with higher standards and to give our
young people the best start in life. We see Information and Communications Technology
(ICT) as a key driver in helping to deliver a transformation in our education provision.
How many secondary schools are in LBHF’s BSF programme?
13 schools will be receiving funding for building works or refurbishment at this stage.
How much investment is available for Hammersmith & Fulham schools?
We are expecting up to £175 million for our schools.
Will all schools be completely rebuilt?
No. At a national level the Government is providing funding based on the following split:
50% new build
35% major refurbishment
15% minor refurbishment
Locally, we will be looking at each school on an individual basis to determine whether it
needs rebuilding, refurbishing or some minor remodelling work.
When is construction expected to start?
Construction on the Wave 6 schools is expected to
start in 2011 and we hope to complete the first
buildings by 2013. This may seem like a long way
off but there are a number of complex procedures to
go through before the actual building works can
start e.g. our proposals must demonstrate value for
What will BSF mean for the local community?
The community will benefit from extended access to school facilities and resources.
Schools developed as 'extended schools' will offer a range of facilities for the community
such as childcare, leisure, performing arts, adult learning classes and access to ICT and
computers. BSF will also provide a more engaging learning environment for all students.
