Our framework agreements are designed to ensure competitive pricing, help drive savings and improve efficiencies. Customers have the ability to directly call-off from a framework or run a mini-competition, therefore allowing more flexibility. Frameworks offer a compliant route to market giving confidence, providing a comprehensive choice of suppliers and excellent geographic coverage. Frameworks are easy to access and utilise. Specialist category teams can provide additional support should you require any help with developing specifications,
running mini-competitions and analysing data to identify cost saving opportunities. Whatever procurement support you need, we have flexible options for you.
