Frameworks

Public Contract Regulation frameworks – How it works

Frameworks are umbrella agreements that set out the terms, that include specification, quality, price, quantity, under which individual contracts (call offs) can be made during the lifetime of the framework (normally 4 years). Legislation governs the way frameworks are run. Suppliers compete through open competition to be appointed to a framework.

Publicly funded contracting authorities – our clients – then call off individual contracts

Suppliers
