  • Counter top Hot and Cold beverage machines
  • Machines that dispense carbonates, bottled and canned drinks

In respect of a fully managed service, the Service Providers prices are fully inclusive of overheads and profit. The Service provider is responsible for the replenishment, cleaning, servicing and comprehensive maintenance of the equipment, including all parts and labour necessary to rectify damage due to normal wear and tear and to keep equipment in operative working order. The Service Provider must provide details of insurance cover available for fire, theft, damage and vandalism etc. which is included as part of a fully managed service. Options are available through mini competition for  Self-fill.

This framework features a rebate mechanism, whereby profit is shared on sales generated for snacks.

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.
