It is the Council’s intention to open the framework as need dictates to encourage and increase capacity in the market. The framework agreement differs from those let under the non light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, may let the framework agreements for longer than 4 years and may periodically open the framework for new applicants and/or add new lots. The Council intends to let this framework under Regulations 74 to 77 of the Public Contract Regulations 2015 (Light Touch Regime) under which the Council has flexibility as to the process or procedure to be used when purchasing certain services of which this is one.
