Marie-Claude Hemming said, “While we recognize that executives offer the opportunity to use a consistent supply chain for a number of similar projects and to offer the benefits of disseminating good employment practices to each other, we now find ourselves in a situation where a contractor who follows future work can see a multitude of different market pathways for a single system.” For offices, a framework agreement is required in accordance with the DemABl. And the choice on the “economically most advantageous” basis is awarded to a single supplier. The Authority uses its office requirements for the duration of the framework, based on the conditions agreed upon when the framework was put in place. But beware, the framework is not a one-off solution. Consider the scale of the projects; which poses a low or low risk to a public authority may pose a high/high risk to another authority. Alternatively, some executives allow for direct allocation, i.e. no mini-contests or cancellations. The work could be awarded to a bidder on the basis of a geographic lot already agreed under the framework agreement. Some frameworks are also allocated on the basis of performance measured throughout the partnership.
Framework agreements allow a contracting authority to enter into longer-term agreements with more than one supplier and, in some cases, with suppliers for a number of industries. In public procurement, it is customary for a buyer to require a number of services; A good example of a framework agreement would be a municipality that seeks to obtain work in progress and divides a framework into lots such as roof, scaffolding, general construction, etc., in order to conclude an agreement with specialized companies without constantly entering the market. In theory, this should also benefit other supply chains over a guaranteed period of time. The important thing if you are fighting for a place in a frame is that the level of competition will be much higher. This is simply due to the size of the contracts and the increase in the number of places. Short-term procurement policies that create endless uncertainty for suppliers. Framework agreements are long-term relationships with suppliers that create a business environment that promotes more sustainable investment and employment in local construction companies and reduces waste of physical processes and resources. For example, public sector framework agreements or framework agreements on construction? A framework agreement is required for a number of consulting services. A paper from the Official Journal of the European Communities is published and candidates for the framework will be selected on the basis of financial and economic capacity and technical capacity, including balance sheet and skills.
Offers are then evaluated on the “economically most advantageous” basis, including quality systems and royalty rates. A number of companies are involved in the framework and cover the necessary consulting services. Hourly rates for different staff levels are part of the agreed conditions. Where certain services are required, the awarding authority organizes a mini-competition with all suppliers who are able to meet these needs for the category of services needed to determine which company offers the “best price” (value for money) for each required combination of notes/tariffs. We also recommend checking what compliance elements may be required for you to plan them. For example, What training does your staff need? Does the company need additional certifications? What experiences and evidence are relevant and you can start planning before the tender.
