Benefits of using the framework

 

• OJEU COMPLIANT
No formal tendering is required, saving valuable time and money in the procurement process

• DIRECT AWARD
The agreement gives freedom and flexibility for all participating authorities to choose the suppliers they wish within the remit of the agreement.

• COMPETITIVE PRICING
Capped ceiling pricing during the framework period to support budgeting and calculation of benefits realised by participating authorities. Mini-competition may be undertaken to meet the bespoke requirement of each customer.

• QUALITY OF SERVICE PROVISION
The experience, expertise and quality commitment of suppliers is assessed during the tender evaluation, with performance and Trusts' satisfaction monitored on an ongoing basis.

• OPPORTUNITIES FOR COLLABORATION
A framework agreement can help to facilitate NHS Trusts sharing single procurements when they have common requirements.

• ENCOURAGING BEST PRACTICE
NHS SBS has a greater ability to ensure 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 customers have a detailed specification of requirement prior to embarking on a mini-competition.

• COMMON TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Both customers and suppliers need only familiarise themselves with one set of contractual terms and conditions, with the need for redrafting and/or renegotiating terms for each procurement exercise undertaken not being necessary.
