How to buy

You can buy from this framework by further competition or direct award. Further competition will take around 4 weeks, depending on the size and scale of the requirement.

You can access the agreement by contacting us at info@crowncommercial.gov.uk

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

This will allow CCS to:

· Track delivery specific projects between the Contracting Authority and the Supplier
· Collate project specific Management Information to support identification of spend and savings at a more granular project level
· Have better transparency of data
· Support system and data reviews during Supplier Audits

Important

· Customers must complete a Customer User Agreement before using the framework
· Direct Award and Further Competitions are permitted, our guidance outlines the approach for each method
· 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.
