We’re Listed on 20 Frameworks for Primary Education 

Frameworks are lists of pre-approved suppliers who have been evaluated and selected to provide a predefined set of products and services.

Many schools and academy trusts use frameworks to purchase products and services because they provide better value for money, compliant routes to market and peace of mind – and suppliers use frameworks to bid on specific contracts without going through a lengthened procurement process.

Because large volumes of business are conducted through frameworks, primary schools can obtain better value for money thanks to increased buying power and economies of scale. transformations.

How can my school or academy trust start using frameworks?

Our framework specialists can explain how you can access relevant frameworks. It’s usually quick and easy, and often free – so schools and trusts can see the benefits of membership immediately.

Talk to us to arrange a signposting session and we’ll discuss the best options for your school or trust.

Each framework agreement tells you how to choose a supplier and complete your buying process.

Depending on the type of procurement, you could have the following options:

  • Direct award, so you can select a supplier from a list and buy according to agreed prices
  • Mini-competition, where you ask all suppliers on the list to send you a bid and you choose the best one that meets your requirements

If you use a framework approved by the DfE, you’ll buy through a compliant route. This means you don’t need three quotes from the listed suppliers or anyone else to complete your procurement.
