    The framework documents and templates are all available to download from the 'Documents' tab above. Please complete and return the NDA Access Agreement if you would like sight of the tender documents including specification, terms and conditions, criteria etc. On submission to YPO, please confirm what further information you require from the team and we will be happy to assist.

    • Direct Award -  Award direct to a chosen supplier on the permittable lots based on cost, or cost and quality
    • Price on demand - Award direct to a chosen supplier after conducting a simple and fast 100% price quotation (under threshold only)
    • Further competition - Evaluate suppliers based on criteria relevant to your organisation

    Please ensure to follow any internal policies and the current Public Contract Regulations and refer to the user guide, under the heading ‘How to call off the framework’ for considerations and top tips when choosing your procurement route. Direct Award and Further Competition guidance is also provided separately within the ‘Documents’ tab.
