A framework agreement is an understanding between service providers that sets out the terms under which specific purchases (call-offs) can be made throughout the term of the agreement. The maximum term of a framework is four years. The most common call-off will be via a mini–competition tender exercise. A framework agreement is subject to the EU procurement rules.
All of our frameworks are national, and OJEU compliant. They provide substantial financial benefits to our members, including access to the collective purchasing power of organisations managing more than 300,000 properties.
Through our framework agreements we provide a free-to-use mini competition service, saving a considerable amount of time and cost for our members.
By using our services we can save organisations an average of £6,000 per annum on direct procurement costs for each contract they use through Procurement For All.
There is no restriction on when a member can access our frameworks. To find out more about becoming a member please contact us.
Suppliers are required to follow the OJEU tender process to access our frameworks, although you can register your interest in particular work streams by visiting the contact us page.
We will always advertise frameworks through the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
