Duration Of Framework Agreements

It is possible to enter into a framework agreement with a single supplier. Multi-supplier frameworks are also possible; a multi-supplier framework, established under the 2015 Public Procurement Regulation, requires only two suppliers (at least three were required under the 2006 Public Procurement Regulations). There is no maximum number of suppliers in the procurement rules, but in practice it will be difficult to manage the managers of a very large number of suppliers, as the adjudicating authorities may have to go to any supplier that has been designated under a proposed appeal. A framework agreement is not an interim agreement. It is more detailed than a statement of principle, but less than a full-fledged contract. Its aim is to find the fundamental compromises necessary to enable the parties to develop and conclude a comprehensive agreement that ends the conflict and creates lasting peace.

The `new` EU directive, which is the basis of the 2015 regulations, expressly states in point 62: “While contracts must be made on the basis of a framework agreement before the expiry of the term of the framework agreement, the duration of each contract, on the basis of a framework agreement, must not correspond to the duration of that framework agreement.

In particular, it should be allowed to determine the duration of individual contracts on the basis of a framework agreement that will take into account factors such as the time required to complete them, when maintenance of equipment with a planned duration of use greater than four years is included, or when full staff training is required to complete the contract.” However, there is a general prohibition on the misuse of framework agreements or in a manner that distorts competition, and this should be taken into account when determining the duration of an appeal contract. In the negotiations, a framework agreement is an agreement between two parties, which acknowledges that the parties have not reached a final agreement on all issues that are relevant to the relations between them, but that they have agreed on enough issues to move relations forward, agreeing further details in the future.
