NFP’s Occupational health framework is OJEU compliant and free to access. The framework covers the provision of Occupational Health services, permissible by public sector organisations.

The services offered under this framework include (but are not limited to):

  • Pre-employment screening, medicals and enquiries
  • In-service referrals
  • Stress assessments
  • Workstation and workplace assessments
  • Case conference and other attendance cases
  • Health and specialist health surveillance packages
  • Pensions and ill-health retirement assessments
  • Immunisation programmes
  • Health promotion services
  • Employee assistance programmes

The aim of the framework is to support clients in ensuring that:

  • Employees are fit to undertake their tasks;
  • Have physical and mental well-being amongst the workforce to optimise attendance, engagement, resilience and performance to meet business objectives;
  • Supporting staff who are ill to bring them back to work so maximising attendance to meet business objectives;
  • Supporting staff to keep them in work;
  • De-medicalising situations by providing practical advice and focusing reports what the employee can or might be able to do with help;
  • Enabling managers to support staff to promptly bring them back to work, keep them in work or promptly exit them from the organisation
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 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.
