Advertising Solutions

Framework 3A
Status: Extended

This framework offers customers a quick, simple and competitive route to procure advertising solutions.

Please log in to download the User Guide which contains the full details of this framework. In most cases, further information such as pricing can only be obtained by completing and returning the Access Agreement form, which can be found within the User Guide document.

As a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have relied on Regulation 72 (1) (c) of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 to extend this framework.

Please note that a renewed framework for Advertising Solutions (3A) is now available here.

The framework offers access to pre-approved suppliers who have been selected for their ability to provide customers with a comprehensive range of services that combine quality and value. These suppliers can be appointed using efficient and streamlined procurement processes; therefore ensuring that customers obtain value-for-money services which meet their requirements.
The framework is comprised of five lots, including:

  • Lot 1 - Recruitment Advertising & Related Services
  • Lot 2 - Public Notices Advertising
  • Lot 3 - Campaign Advertising
  • Lot 4 - eRecruitment & Related Systems
  • Lot 5 - Management of Advertising Space for Commercial Sponsorship

The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Schools & Academies
  • Local Authority Establishments
  • Police & Emergency Services
  • NHS & HSC Bodies
  • Central Government Departments & their agencies
  • Registered Charities
  • Registered Social Landlords

What are the benefits of using this framework?
