Our Framework Agreements
Benefits of Our Framework Agreements
Our framework agreements are designed to ensure competitive pricing, help drive savings and improve efficiencies. To allow more flexibility, customers have the ability to directly call-off from a framework or run a mini-competition. Frameworks offer a compliant route to market, providing a comprehensive choice of suppliers and excellent geographic coverage. Frameworks are easy to access and utilise.
Flexible Options to Suit You
Depending on your needs, we can arrange one-off access to certain framework contracts to meet a specific demand. Alternatively, we can offer you access to our full portfolio of framework agreements, enabling you to shift away from simply buying at the lowest price and towards procurement based on total cost of ownership. Whatever procurement support you need, we have flexible options for you.
Specialist Support and Advice
Our specialist healthcare procurement team help NHS customers to procure best value for money, health-related products, and services at no cost to them. In addition to accessing our healthcare framework agreements, local procurement teams can also benefit from a portfolio of specialist, value-added procurement services and expertise free of charge. This includes:
- Commercial advisors and category specialists who advise on which framework agreement best suits customer needs.
- Clinical advisors to support clinical engagement to ensure all procurements meet clinical standards.
- A self-serve framework agreement portal, due to launch towards the end of 2023, featuring our user-friendly buying guides advising whether a direct award or mini competition is required.
- Creation of bespoke data-led workplans to help deliver local and regional CIP challenges.
- Delivery of strategic sourcing (including mini competitions of aggregated volumes and switch to save projects) to unlock savings.
- Support with contract implementation locally and regionally.
Our framework agreements and value-added services are tailored specifically to the needs of NHS customers and their Integrated Care Systems. Through the help of our specialist advisors and buyers, local procurement teams can drive maximum value and efficiency from their procurement. They are not charged for this service.
We also do not charge suppliers to appear on our frameworks, but we do ask suppliers for a nominal competitive fee should they successfully sell through one of our frameworks agreements. This fee is reinvested back into our service so we can keep delivering and developing new support services that enable the NHS to buy more easily and cost effectively.
