Benefits of our framework agreements

Framework Agreements Benefits
Our framework agreements are easy to utilise and 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 giving confidence, providing a comprehensive choice of suppliers and excellent geographic coverage. 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.

Flexible options to suit you

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.
