Who can use the framework?
The framework is available to the wider public sector, social housing organisations and voluntary and community sector bodies. For a full list of eligible customers please see the following link:

How can I use this framework:
Customers can ‘call off’ from this framework agreement (i.e. use this framework to establish a contract) via direct award or mini competition.
Direct Call-Off Order - Customers are able to identify the supplier who can provide the lowest priced goods/services to meet their individual requirements. The customer is able to directly approach the supplier and issue a direct order to them.
Mini-competition - Customers who are not able to identify the supplier who they can provide the lowest price for goods/services are able to undertake a mini-competition involving all suppliers.

Step 1 - Complete the Customer Access Agreement and return to YPO.
Step 2 - Review the User Guide to establish whether your needs can be met by a single supplier or whether you need to conduct a Further Competition. Page 10 contains more information on how to place an order. If you decide that a single supplier can meet your requirements based on the pricing and/ or other information provided in the User Guide simply place an order with that supplier. Alternatively, if you decide you need to conduct a Further Competition you may do so by seeking quotations from all of the suppliers that are able to meet your requirements. More specific details on how to conduct a further competition can be found in the user guide.

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