Market engagement

The agreement will use the new Public Sector Contract (PSC)

We are making this available to give suppliers the chance to familiarise themselves with the PSC and provide feedback.

When setting up a new framework we will use:

  • the standard core terms
  • relevant schedules (some schedules must be used, others are optional)

We will customise the documents for each framework.

To send us feedback, email CCSprintteam@crowncommercial.gov.uk.

The final terms will be contained in the bid pack issued with the OJEU (Contract notice).
