Online Course


This course provides delegates with an understanding of the requirements for awarding compliant contracts from framework agreements. In addition, the regulatory requirements for using other authorities’ frameworks means clear understanding is needed not just of the buyer’s requirements but also of the restrictions of use associated with framework agreements established by other contracting bodies in order to reduce the risk of challenge.

Many involved in the procurement process are likely to be impacted by frameworks, whether involved in the procurement of the framework itself, the award of a call off contract, or the management of a framework agreement. Therefore, this course is suitable not only for those new to procurement but also those who need to update their knowledge of frameworks under the Public Contract Regulations 2015 and the Utilities Contract Regulations 2016.
