Alternatively, contracting bodies accessing the framework agreement may re-open competition to all providers capable of meeting the requirement within the framework agreement via a ‘mini competition’ process within the applicable lot(s).

The estimated number of cores from all classifications of carriageways and footways to be called-off the framework agreement for indicative purposes only is shown within the Invitation to Tender documentation. None of the named organisations will however be obliged to procure through the framework agreement. Economic operators should note that inclusion on the framework agreement is not a guarantee that any call-off contracts will be awarded.
