We also recommend checking what compliance elements may be required for you to plan them. For example, What training does your staff need? Does the company need additional certifications? What experiences and evidence are relevant and you can start planning before the tender. Planning is the key! In describing the efforts to reach an agreement between Israel and Palestine, Senator George J. Mitchell said: We have a specially designed software, Tender Pipeline, that offers all public and private frameworks. You can quickly and easily search and log in to receive relevant notifications that will help you be well prepared in advance. Under EU procurement rules, any public purchase of goods and services is a contract. A framework agreement sets out the conditions to be applied to each contract over a four-year period, for example. The contracting framework is generally not a contract itself. Note that a framework includes the provision of a generic group of goods, works or services (or a combination), for example. B: A framework is required for the construction of standard building units or office space on different sites over a period of four years. The Official Journal of the European Union and the selection procedure, based on financial and economic capacity and technical capacity, provide a framework for a number of major contractors on the basis of “the most economically advantageous offer”. Each of the major contractors has the capacity and supply chains to carry out the various aspects of the construction work during the period. With each call, we decide whether a mini-competition is necessary depending on the fine-tuning of the conditions.

When a mini-competition is required, offers are solicited by all contractors who are able to meet specific needs. Cancellations under the framework, which can be attributed at any time until the end of the agreement itself, may continue beyond the period of the agreement until the work is completed. A framework agreement is relevant when several deliveries are expected but certain quantities and delivery times are not expected… like a normal contract. Frames can be set up by a particular buyer, for example. B by a university that focuses solely on its specific use. Others are wider, such as ESPO, Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation, Crown Commercial Services, Procurement for Housing etc. They will create framework conditions for their members, for example.

B groups of housing companies or schools. So once you have been approved and successfully awarded on their frame, you get mini-contests and you will thus have access to a much wider group of customers. Normally, you would have a “framework” for each generic group, but you could have a “framework agreement” with more than one supplier in each framework. Depending on the framework agreement, if estimated work values are known, they can provide a healthy long-term revenue stream for a business and support cash flow and business planning for 3 to 5 years.
