This framework has been awarded as the result of a tender exercise in compliance with The Public Contracts Regulations. To ensure that you remain compliant with regulations you should follow the processes detailed within the associated documents when engaging with suppliers on the framework.
“It is reassuring to know when using a CPC framework that the team are also there to support you beyond the initial purchase. When we ran into difficulties with a particular supplier, CPC were able to advise us and use their influence to ensure that the supplier listened to our concerns and offered a solution. They facilitated calls with senior staff at the supplier and used their detailed knowledge of the framework agreement to support us. Best of all, this additional support from procurement experts didn't cost us a penny.”
Dee Stacey, Business Manager, Timu Academy Trust
