Wider public sector customers can benefit by using this framework for Training for Emergency Services:

 

  • Reduced timescales – Customers don’t need to run a full OJEU procurement through this framework as it has already been done by YPO. All you need to do is identify your requirements, present them to the market and award a contract.

 

This also benefits suppliers as they only need to complete on OJEU procurement.

 

  • Ease of use – Simple to use with expert advice available from YPO.

 

  • Excellent choice of supplier – more details can be found on the supplier tab or the user guide

 

  • Legality – A fully legal framework in line with EU regulations

 

  • Assured supplier standards – Providers are ‘pre-qualified’ as to their general suitability, which means when buying services from them, customers are assured they can meet specified requirements

 

  • Aggregation of spend – customers will receive the benefits of an aggregated volume of spend and the benefits associated with an increased leverage on the market

 

  • Pre-defined terms and conditions – terms and conditions of the contract have already been established, and signed and accepted by suppliers.
