The framework agreements created by the Government ensure the supply of goods and services for a particular area such as IT or recruitment can be chosen from a list of pre-approved suppliers.

UK businesses small to large have the opportunity to supply key Government departments and win major consistent work throughout a framework’s lifetime. Once the approved suppliers have been selected, businesses who are not on the framework will miss out the opportunity to work with Government Departments.

To make finding the right framework for your business easier, we break down the types of frameworks into four pillars: Building and Infrastructure, Information Technology, Professional Services and People.

If you’re seeking assistance for frameworks not listed on our website, get in touch. We would be happy to chat about how we can help you make the most of any route to market and see how we can assist on your procurement journey.

What are frameworks?

To access Government contracts, you must first win framework awards to demonstrate your company is capable of delivering the requirements of the contract terms. This is where we will help you. The Public Sector frequently uses frameworks as they can reduce the cost of procurement, ensure the best value is achieved and avoids the potential for lengthy contracts.

We support you every step of the way with our unique, fully managed service in which we review and submit your bids to get your business onto Government frameworks.

Why does the Quality Score matter?

Government Tenders are dependent on a scoring system. This scoring is based on the Most Economically Advantageous Tender (MEAT) in which alongside price, buyers consider technical ability, quality and more. This is a standardised system allowing a fair and transparent procurement process in which all companies are given equal opportunity. Suppliers must demonstrate how they would manage the contract with evidence i.e. from your score.

GovData has a proven track record of winning clients the highest possible Quality Scores. This means once you’re onto a framework, after using our services, you will be more likely to win Government contracts than your competitors.
