Framework agreement definition

A framework agreement is a general term for agreements which can be with either single or multiple suppliers that set out the terms and conditions under which specific purchases (call-offs) can be made throughout the framework duration.

Scottish Procurement has entered into this framework agreement with suppliers to ensure organisations may obtain value for money in their purchasing whilst being assured that their procurement is compliant with Scottish procurement regulations.

In establishing this framework agreement, Scottish Procurement carried out a competition in accordance with Scottish procurement regulations.

Using a framework agreement saves time and money for organisations and ensures that the terms and conditions of their contract with the suppliers are robust and follow best practice.
