The simplest way to explain a framework agreement is to think of it is a type of ‘umbrella’ agreement with a number of suppliers, established by Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and others, for use by the public sector. Frameworks are a pre-competed route to market providing a vehicle to centralise procurement spend. They offer shared procurement expertise and resource and a shared risk and contract management. A large majority of organisations are buying through these agreements. But why? Well there are several reasons why this is a good idea. A framework agreement offers reduced administrative burden as agreements significantly reduce the time and cost compared to running a full procurement procedure each time, whilst also helping to ensure legal compliance.Download our datasheet
