How can I use this Framework

Members buying insurance for colleges must undertake a further competition to select a provider considering your own college insurance requirements. Please read the user guide for full details, guidance and template documentation.

Many college insurance renewal dates are in August, so we would typically recommend starting the college insurance tender process as early as March or April. This will allow you and the framework providers plenty of time to get the very best from your tender processes.
