What are the benefits of using this framework?

  • This framework is compliant with UK/EU procurement legislation - we’ve done the work, so there’s no need for you to run a full EU procurement process.
  • Suppliers listed on the framework were assessed during the procurement process for their financial stability, track record, experience and technical & professional ability.
  • Pre-agreed terms & conditions and specifications underpin all orders.
  • Customers can access the framework simply by calling off (ordering) with their awarded supplier(s) or by conducting quick, simple ‘further competitions’. ESPO can provide free templates to facilitate this or assist if required.
  • Customers are offered a ‘one stop shop’ solution whereby all highway de-icing product needs are met by suppliers awarded on multiple lots of the framework.
  • Customers can feel safe in the knowledge that they are using one of the largest established frameworks in the UK for de-icing salt and associated products, accessed by many customers successfully over the years. Over 1 million tonnes of bulk salt have been supplied via the framework in the last 15 years.
