ResoLex Roundtable: FAC-1 Framework Alliance Lessons

October 10, 2023 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm

ResoLex Roundtable FAC-1

In February 2018, Professor David Mosey introduced the, then new, FAC1 – Framework Alliance contract at our ResoLex Roundtable, describing its intent and ambition. Five years on, the Crown Commercial Service, LHC, NHS Shared Business Services and Ministry of Justice, have used FAC-1 for procurements with a total projected value of over £57 billion.

We are delighted that David has agreed to return and to share case studies, pitfalls and lessons learned from the FAC-1 Framework Alliance Contract in practice, including:

  • How does FAC-1 connect multiple projects or the parts of a complex project?
  • Why is FAC-1 recommended by the Government?
  • Exploring FAC-1 in relation to NEC and Project 13
  • What is the role of FAC-1 in net zero action plans?
  • Does FAC-1 provide a new approach to contracting for BIM?
  • What happens when an FAC-1 alliance goes wrong?

We will also explore how the learning from FAC-1 frameworks can provide valuable lessons for other collaborative delivery models.
