Buying using framework agreements

How to buy

Benefits of procuring via a Framework

Speed and convenience
Faster, cheaper and more convenient than other procurement routes

No charge
Purchasers and buyers do not don’t have to pay a premium to use a framework agreement.

Ease of use
Buying from a framework agreement is as easy as picking products and services from an online catalogue.

Built-in compliance
Agreements comply with UK/EU procurement legislation, avoiding lengthy procurement processes.

Peace of mind
The suppliers have been vetted and are actively managed, comply with accreditations, standards and legislation.

Favourable T's and C's
Frameworks offer pre-agreed standard terms and conditions, so you don’t have to negotiate them yourself.

Competitive pricing
Suppliers on framework contracts offer competitive, controlled prices, which may go down.
