The Frameworks Working Group will conduct a survey early in the New Year amongst SMEs. The aim is to find out their attitudes to bidding for and working on government framework agreements or working as sub-contractors to a Prime on government framework agreements. The data gathered will form the basis for our further thoughts and ideas to broaden purchasing options for the procurement community and to suggest some changes to framework agreements post-Brexit. We hope to present the findings of the survey to the Panel in February.
If you are an SME and would like to take part in the survey, please contact Jonathan Lewis, Chair of the Frameworks Working Group
