All buyers should enter into a new call-off contract with their chosen supplier. You will be responsible for managing your call-off contract and will establish your own account management arrangements with your chosen supplier.
Most of the content in the call-off contract is pre-completed material detailing the standardised service and charging model. The call-off contract comprises:
- The order form
- Call-off contract terms and conditions
- Call-off contract schedules
The order form captures essential details relating to the specific contract. It provides a summary and is the document for putting the contract in place. The parties enter into the call-off contract by signing the order form. The terms and conditions are mainly standard government provisions that will be applicable to all call-off contracts. The service may carry charges at point of delivery depending on the service provider chosen, such as card fees and transaction charges.
Where your requirements can be closely met by a particular supplier and you can demonstrate value for money, there is no need to conduct a further competition. You should award the contract directly to your chosen supplier.
Run a further competition where you need further detail from suppliers not available within the information provided or you wish to further compete the commercial structure of this agreement.
