Next Steps

How can I use this Framework?

There are two ways to use the framework; direct selection or mini-competition. Clients may enter into contract for any duration that allows for performance 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, it is not reasonably practicable 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 the Client is able to determine which Contractor/Consultant will provide it with the most economically advantageous offer.
  • Where the Contractor/Consultant has introduced the site.

Mini competition

The mini-competition method 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.

Call-off Forms (E-Sign)

NFP has simplified the call-off process to 5 steps allowing you access to our framework within minutes. The 5 steps include Adobe E-sign and details (or guidance) can be found below; alternatively, you can choose mini-competition.
