|Benefits of Our Framework Agreements|
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.
|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.
|Specialist Support and Advice|
Our specialist category managers have a wealth of experience across
corporate services and healthcare. The teams can provide bespoke,
specialist support with running mini-competitions as well as
