Before any call off you will need to complete a Customer User Agreement (CUA) so we can give you a user number. The CUA must be quoted at all times and used on all market engagement documents

· Have better transparency of data
· Support system and data reviews during Supplier Audits
· Customers must complete a Customer User Agreement before using the framework

· Ability to ‘Flex’ award weighting at further competition (75% Quality/25% Price +/- 25%)
· An extensive customer guidance document is available in the attachments to support customers
· Choice of Call Off contracts (NEC 3 PSP/CCS Model form)
· Pricing is aligned to RIBA work stages which can be bespoke to support individual customer requirements
· KPI’s are available with incentivisation/gain share options
Guidance on selecting the appropriate lot is available in the documents tab along with call-off terms and conditions.
You can use our Call Off Template to run further competitions on the PMFDTS framework.
You can use either a form of agreement based on NEC3 Professional Service Agreement (see attached zip file: NEC supporting documents), or a CCS standard form. We can support and advise you on the benefits of each approach.
This template is specifically tailored to the requirements of this framework and will help you run a compliant and efficient further competition process, but customers can use their own documents if they want to.
We have worked with key government departments to tailor the template to their own specific requirements and can offer this to other clients if required.
