Framework agreements are becoming an increasingly popular procurement route within the public sector, providing a smarter way of buying services from accredited suppliers. Cantium Business Solutions are registered on the major procurement frameworks, enabling us to help our customers in the public sector to save significant time and money when going out to tender.

Our proven track record as a long-standing public sector framework supplier and our presence on multiple Crown Commercial Service frameworks provides our customers with the reassurance that we can support them to ensure they can successfully achieve their business objectives.

What Is a Procurement Framework?

A procurement framework is an agreement put in place with a provider or range of providers that enables buyers to place orders for services without running lengthy full framework tendering exercises.

You can purchase from Cantium Business Solutions on the following frameworks:

Cantium’s solutions are available for procurement on these frameworks via a direct award or competitive tender. We are proud to have been awarded a place on these procurement frameworks to help us in supporting your organisation to create efficiencies and deliver value for money.

When you are running a procurement exercise, a framework can deliver many benefits, such as:

Cost-Savings

Using a framework can save purchasing authorities significant time and money, with buyers able to source services at lower prices and with advantageous conditions.

Public Sector Compliant Route to Market

Framework procurement routes remove the need for clients to undertake a costly and time-consuming full OJEU process to identify and select suppliers, as the framework agreement itself is OJEU compliant.

Reduced Procurement Timescale

Framework tendering provides a significant reduction in procurement timescale from six to nine months to as little as four to six weeks, especially within framework agreements that allow direct awards.

Strategic Partnership

Utilising frameworks provides an opportunity to develop a long-term partnership between the supplier, client and other stakeholders which is needed to support continuous improvement and drive efficiencies.

Access to Fully Accredited Suppliers

Framework agreements provide purchasing authorities with direct access to suppliers with the capability, capacity and ability to deliver against the specific requirements of the services being procured.
