How to buy

Read the customer guidance notes, for advice on how to buy from this framework, and complete a customer user agreement (CUA) form (see attached documents).

Email the completed form to CCS at CCS will send you a CUA reference number, which you will need to include in the tender documents.

The CUA enables CCS to:

  • Track delivery of specific projects between buyers and the supplier
  • Further develop the framework based on real user data
  • Provide transparent data

Among the attached documents you should also read:

  • “Framework specification” which details the goods and services included
  • “Accessing the Framework Rate Card” which details the supplier price schedules for the 3 lots.

All procurement from this framework is by further competition. Direct award is not permitted.

Suppliers need enough time to complete and submit their bid. Please allow time for this when conducting a further competition through this framework.

If you need guidance on the length of time they may need, use the RFI template early in the procurement process to contact suppliers to find out their timescales. You can find the RFI template in the documents tab.
