This programme will give experienced procurement professionals a fuller understanding of when and how framework agreements can best be used. It explains the mechanisms for establishing framework agreements and deciding whether single or multiple operator frameworks are appropriate in any given case. It will also provide delegates with an understanding of how to operate centrally established frameworks in line with Circular 16/13.
This course is ideal for those new to procurement tasked with establishing their own frameworks or using those set up by Central Purchasing Bodies such as Office of Government Procurement.
On completion of this course participants will be equipped with the skills to understand the difference between contracts and frameworks, the key elements required in setting them up and how to award contracts under them, whether via cascade, mini-tender or other processes.
