Employers Agent Principal Designer Framework


Our website provides significant advantages for public sector clients looking to engage Employers Agents and Principal Designers through National Framework Partnership’s framework:

Expert Project Management: Employers Agents and Principal Designers play a critical role in overseeing and managing construction projects from inception to completion. They possess the expertise to ensure effective project management, coordination, and compliance with relevant regulations. By utilising our framework, you gain access to skilled professionals who will provide comprehensive project oversight, ensuring the successful delivery of your construction projects.

Streamlined Health and Safety Compliance: Employers Agents and Principal Designers are responsible for integrating health and safety considerations into the design and construction processes. They work closely with the project team to identify and mitigate potential risks, ensuring compliance with health and safety regulations. Their involvement helps create a safe working environment, reducing the likelihood of accidents or hazards during the construction phase.

PCR Compliant Public Sector Frameworks: Our platform delivers public sector frameworks that adhere to the Public Contracts Regulations (PCR). These frameworks are designed to ensure fair and transparent procurement processes while promoting compliance. By engaging with National Framework Partnership, you can access pre-qualified Employers Agents and Principal Designers who have met the stringent selection criteria. This guarantees that you engage with professionals who possess the necessary qualifications and expertise.

Review Appointed Suppliers: Proceed down the page on our website to review the list of appointed suppliers specialising in Employers Agents and Principal Designers. Each supplier profile provides detailed information about their experience, qualifications, and track record in successfully delivering projects. By reviewing these profiles, you can assess the capabilities of the appointed suppliers and make informed decisions based on their expertise and relevant experience.

Streamlined Supplier Selection: Our website offers a streamlined process for selecting suppliers through our 4-step E-sign forms. You can utilise these forms to either directly select a supplier or run a mini competition, depending on your project requirements. Running a mini competition allows you to evaluate proposals from multiple suppliers and select the most suitable Employers Agents and Principal Designers. Alternatively, if you have identified a preferred supplier, you can directly select them using the E-sign form, saving time and effort.

Call-Off Process

How can I use this Framework?

Our simple step process allows for both Direct Selection or Mini-Competition. Further information can be found below. Please note that Clients may enter into a contract for any duration that best allows for the performance of the requirement to be achieved.

Direct Selection

With the Direct Selection method, you may select the contractor who is ranked number 1, or any other Contractor/Consultant on the following basis:

  • Where you have an existing relationship with the Contractor/Consultant.
  • Where the Call Off has substantial similarities to a previous project the Contractor/Consultant was involved with (under this Framework Agreement or not).
  • For reasons of urgency, where it is not reasonably practical to award the Call-Off Contract by way of a Mini-Competition.
  • Capability Criteria determining that only one framework appointee is capable of carrying out the Call-Off Contract.
  • Where you are able to determine which Contractor/Consultant will provide the most economically advantageous offer.
  • Where a Contractor/Consultant has introduced the site.

Mini Competition

Our Mini-Competition process lets you expand beyond the framework’s original specification to meet your specific requirements. The framework partners from the relevant lot are invited to tender (where capable). This process typically takes 2-4 weeks. The capability criteria can be defined by the following:

  • The contractors capability to carry out a project of the size and complexity of the proposed project.
  • The contractors capability to carry out works and services in the locality of the proposed project.
  • The contractors financial stability and standing.
  • The contractors health and safety record.
  • The contractors capacity, taking into account the value of Works and Services already awarded to it under the Framework Agreement.
