Current procurement frameworks
A procurement framework is an agreement put in place with a supplier or range of suppliers that gives other organisations in the public sector the option to place orders for goods, services, or works. Frameworks are usually based on large volume buying, aggregating different customer’s potential needs with the aim of securing more competitive pricing, or with special added benefits and/or more advantageous conditions.
