Tim, thank you very much for the answer, after the local authority had discussions with the local authority about non-compliance, didn`t the local authority do any mini-tenders that I expect we would receive as well? (if they were to be carried out), the local authority proceeded rather directly to the allocation of a contractor on the basis of the areas cantoned and a price per article which had not been submitted during the tendering phase, but which had been offered after the allocation of the framework classification. I suspect that in many cases, the finite value part of the equation is not monitored effectively, especially when the framework is used by a group of authorities. The other “abuse” that can be prevalent is that the agency selects a very high value for the framework that is not based on an analysis of spending plans and realistically unlikely to be achieved, e.B. many OGC purchasing solution frameworks. What are the implications of merging or collaborating between two ABLEU-compliant executives? If you are not on one frame, but on the other? Does this give you automatic exposure to the frame you`re not on? I notice much closer collaboration between these organisations and I wonder whether this should be seen as an opportunity or a threat. If flexibility is an important consideration, you need to weigh the inclusion of more operators in the framework against the effort of managing a larger utility pool and the lower revenue that each operator will earn. If you are the sole supplier party to the Framework, the Board may not place an order with the Board under this Agreement. Article 7 of Regulation No 33 of the Public Procurement Ordinance specifies how an appeal may be awarded if there is only one supplier who is a party to the agreement.

we have a national contract that is now operated in a structure at Studs. The notice was announced last month, but we have not been advised that it is likely that each of these executives will have different suppliers associated with them, which in fact leaves the contracting authority some discretion in deciding which suppliers will have the opportunity to bid for the work. It seems that many positions have been allocated outside the framework and an access to information request has been requested to determine the amount of work we have actually lost and, in turn, the financial cost to our business, although after submitting this request, the local authority has stated that it wants to work with us. and that the information would not be necessary as they would work with us to spend work in the framework as a 1st rank supplier, after this turnaround we accepted the proposed agreement. This NPP states that it is permissible to identify contracting authorities that may use a framework by specifying a recognisable `category` of contracting authorities which may be used – e.B. `central government ministries` or `all Norfolk and Suffolk county and district councils`. In my opinion, this is still far too vague, because in the vast majority of cases the so-called authorities did not participate in the drafting of the agreement or did not give any indication of their planned spending on the goods and services to be provided under the agreement. It is now quite common for an authority to be identified in several different frameworks for the same type of goods and services and can simply choose the framework to use. Where is the transparency? So, going back to your original question.

If you are wondering whether a particular Council is allowed to use the Framework Agreement, take a look at the original notice published in the Official Journal (OJ) and see how the “parties” have been identified. We can help you find the right notice for you if you don`t have easy access to it (call us, 0800 270 0249, or email us at info@tendersdirect.co.uk. It can be quite simple and straightforward to argue that the Council has the right to use the framework. Where the contracting authority concludes a framework agreement with more than one economic operator, a specific contract may be awarded – any organisation subject to EU public procurement rules may publish a framework agreement. Many are either published on behalf of multiple buyers or left open to some or all public sector organizations. The non-clinical non-medical setting indicates the supplier fees for each organization that provides temporary workers. The agency introduces the candidates to our department and indicates what the fees would be for that person, but does not disclose what the workers will be paid. Can the agency actually increase its fees by negotiating separately the amount it will pay the employee, or is it required to pay the employee under the agreement, even if the employee would like to take less money? If you don`t already have the information, it may be helpful to ask the agency for the relevant contractors` ratings for the executive and how they award appeal contracts. Hi Tim, I spoke to one of my colleagues and he asked me to clarify my question for you to look into further. Hello Patrick, well, it would be wise to consider the skills of the remaining contractors before adding irregular costs to the supply chain, because the work is in progress and you have identified this problem at this stage, best for the entire tender, only it should be that the remaining contractors do not have the required required competence, then you can propose for new entrepreneurs, beware of the secondary contractual obligation! Sincere greetings. Greetings Fanwell S There is no need for an additional framework agreement to do this.

For example, a board has a number of jobs that need to be done by a group of suppliers, contractors or service providers. The establishment of a framework contract will be an effective way to work without having to go through the tender procedure every time. The danger, of course, is that while you are involved, for example, in a framework used by a local authority, you could opt for another framework in which you are not involved and then no longer have the right to provide goods or services to that authority through no fault of your own.
