NHS England Compliance

NHS England have provided the following guidance regarding award of contracts under framework agreements, as per the Public Contract Regulations 2015

  • When the terms of a framework agreement are precise enough to directly award a contract, the Buyer must award the contract to the top ranked supplier in accordance with the assessment of award criteria when the framework agreement was established, or in accordance with any pre-prescribed rules (call-off protocol) regarding the use of catalogues, or reassessment of award criteria based on requirements configuration
