We'll then contact you to discuss your organisation's needs and guide you through the process to setting up an agreement.  We can help you decide if a framework or DPS is right for you!



A procurement framework agreement sets out the terms (e.g. pricing, quality, quantity) in advance so you always know where you stand.

Individual contracts (known as 'call-offs') can be made throughout the agreement, which usually last a maximum of 4 years.

Frameworks can be ideal if you need a long-term procurement agreement in place.


A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) is perfect for creating your own tender in a shorter time frame. Quality and pricing are determined by you at each call-off.

It's similar to a framework agreement, but new suppliers can join at any time - so there's greater choice and flexibility.
