Frameworks for the public sector
What is a framework?
A framework often referred to as a framework agreement is a selection of pre-qualified suppliers where the buyer selects suppliers and compliantly sets out terms and prices for a period in advance, in accordance with the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. In other words, it is a general term for agreements that set out terms and conditions for making specific purchases (call-offs). KCS Procurement Services has already vetted the chosen suppliers through the tender evaluation process.
