Frameworks and DPSs
What are our solutions
If you don’t have the time or resource to undertake a complicated and lengthy tender process for contracts such as catering, cleaning, telecoms etc, Education Buying has done all the hard work for you with our compliant frameworks and DPS.
A procurement framework is an agreement put in place with a provider, or range of providers, that enables buyers to carry out a Further Competition and in some cases a Direct Award, without running a lengthy full tender exercise. The suppliers are fixed for the agreed period of the framework.
A Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS) is a framework with the added flexibility of being able to add suppliers at any time. All Call Off’s (orders) are carried out by a Further Competition.
