Our partners services are designed to streamline the recruitment process, ensuring that public sector organisations can secure the right talent for your needs, in a timely and efficient manner.

Specialising in sourcing, vetting, and placing permanent trade staff in public sector organisations. Their services are designed to alleviate the burden of recruitment, allowing organisations to focus on their core operations while they handle the complexities of talent acquisition.

The benefits of our partners services to a public sector organisation are manifold. Providing a cost-effective solution to recruitment, saving organisations the time and resources typically associated with the hiring process. Their expertise in the sector ensures that they can identify and attract the best talent, while their rigorous vetting process guarantees that only the most suitable candidates are put forward.

We have simplified the process of engaging our services through an easy 4-step E-sign call off process. This allows you to directly select or run a mini competition. The steps include signing our Confidentiality Agreement to obtain a password, using that password to access the specification, using the same password to access the framework cost model, and finally, E-Signing the Joining Agreement and optionally our own contract or running a mini competition.

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.
  • Rank based on filter categorisation by region and/or contract value, of which the supplier has pre-selected.

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.
