What are the benefits of using the framework?
Using this framework agreement decreases the time and costs associated with a full competitive procurement, with NHS Trusts having the ability to call-off urgent requirements quickly if required.
Value for money tariffs are ensured at the time of the initial competition for hourly and blended rates. Volumes discounts are also available based on annual fees and the aggregated annual spend.
The experience, expertise and quality commitment of suppliers is assessed during the tender evaluation, with performance and Trusts' satisfaction monitored on an ongoing basis.
NHS SBS has ensured that current best practice is incorporated into the terms and conditions of the framework agreement. Guidance on usage can advise further on best practice, such as ensuring an NHS Trust has a detailed
specification of requirement prior to embarking on a mini-competition.
Project management information can readily be collected from suppliers to monitor overall utilisation of a framework agreement by NHS Trusts, together with the ability to assess overall spend data/information.
