Framework Tenders – Finding One Suitable
Framework Tenders – Find One Suitable For You
We support many clients with their tenders when they are bidding for a framework. They act as great opportunities for businesses and can help to provide a revenue for the duration of the contract.
What Are They?
Framework tenders look to appoint more than one supplier. They offer Commissioners who use the framework the opportunity for further mini-competitions or direct awards. This is important as usually the first ranked supplier can be awarded business via the framework without the need for further competition.
Who Are Framework Tenders Released By?
A wide range of public bodies. From councils to housing associations through to emergency services all release frameworks.
These tenders will involve the usual price/quality evaluation. They usually run for between 3-5 years and can be extended at the request of the commissioner.
