Yes, all of our framework agreements have been developed in accordance with EU and Directives. Please contact us at email@example.com for a copy of the contract notices if required.
All of our framework agreements are live for a period of four years (we are unable to add any other supplier onto a live framework).
We can save our members a lot of time, money and unnecessary stress and hassle because we have simple and well-structured procedures in place that also offer flexibility to members. When you sign up to use any of our frameworks, we will have already undertaken the pre-qualification stage at framework stage. We provide bespoke timescales to suit your requirements and we only work with quality suppliers. We also produce the call off contract for you, using standard terms and conditions and we can offer contract advice at any stage of the process.
We can mediate between members and suppliers who access our framework should there be any issues/disputes. Please contact us.
Am I going to be notified if any changes are made to a framework agreement I am currently utilising?
Consortium Procurement will advise members of any relevant updates for example industry changes when necessary.
