How to Use

Direct Award - where the terms laid down in the agreement are sufficiently precise to cover the members’ particular requirement and the most economically advantageous offer can be easily identified, the member can award the call-off without reopening competition. This method is recommended for ad-hoc, low value and/or low risk purchases, and institutions are encouraged to reference the framework to ensure they are obtaining framework pricing and terms.

Award through use of the Desktop Calculator - If time is of the essence and organisations are comfortable with the terms of the proposed contract, and these do not require amendment or supplementary conditions then you may award using the Desktop Exercise. 

Mini-competition - Member institutions may choose to utilise one of the three mini-competition templates depending on the lot they wish to use. Institutions should allow suppliers a minimum of 2 weeks to respond to their request. Engagement with suppliers prior to this can allow the institution to gain a fuller understanding of timescales, scope etc. regardless of which lot they are utilising
