CPC has purchasing arrangements (frameworks) for a huge variety of goods and services. Potential benefits, including savings, to members aswell as methods of access vary from framework to framework. Here we've tried to categorise our frameworks in terms of:

  1. Speed: how long it usually takes in order to access and make best use of the framework
    • Quick Win - Contract could typically be awarded within a week
    • Average Process – Further Competition will typically take 1 to 3 weeks
    • Long Process - Further Competition will take 3 weeks or more
  2. Impact: the benefit your institution is likely to obtain by using the framework, in terms of cost savings and / or improvements in operational effectiveness
    • High Impact - This framework covers areas of high value and/or risk to the institution
