IV.1.3)Information about a framework agreement or a dynamic purchasing system
The Flexible Framework applies the flexibilities afforded under regulation 76 of the Public Contracts Regulations 2015. Given the nature of the care homes market it is necessary to allow new entrants to enter the framework. Given that the framework will not be closed to new entrants competition is not restricted, therefore justifying a longer contract term than otherwise permissible.
