What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • It’s FREE - You will not be charged for using this framework.
  • Quick & easy to use - This framework has been established via an EU/UK compliant tendering process so it removes the need for you to run a full EU/UK compliant tendering process and it reduces the timescales to put your provisions in place.
  • Pre-vetted suppliers with ongoing monitoring - Suppliers listed on the framework were assessed during ESPO’s procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability, before being awarded a place on the framework. The Category Team continue to monitor and check the suppliers on the framework.
  • Not Ranked - The suppliers are not ranked and therefore you have the freedom to approach the supplier of your choice without having to go through any sequential order.
  • Direct Award - You can place a direct call off order with any supplier on the framework based on the terms outlined in the User Guide and Price Schedule.
  • Further Competition - Customers can undertake a further competition amongst the suppliers on the framework and can vary the weightings of the evaluation criteria to suit their requirements – even appointing suppliers only by evaluating price.
  • Pre-agreed conditions - No need to worry about what terms & conditions to use. Each order that is put through the framework is underpinned by a call-off contract that has been pre-agreed at tender stage. The call-off contract can be supplemented by your own terms and conditions should you wish to include them.
