Where new conservation measures are needed these may be implemented at the national, regional or international scale. JNCC is committed to the development of nature-based solutions as part of its wider and strategic development.

To assist in achieving their statutory nature conservation remit, the JNCC Support Co.

3. Project Objectives
The Framework Agreement
The purpose of this document is to specify the requirements of the Joint Nature Conservation Committee and establish a Framework Agreement for Business Associates. The definition of the skills we require is summarised in Point 9 of this ITT.
Interested bidders are invited to apply to join the Business Associates Framework Agreement under the generic skills descriptors listed in accordance with the instructions detailed in this document (section 9.2). JNCC will assess relevant current/past experience, topic appreciation and compliance with Quality Assurance as well as the Standard Selection Questionnaire.
The number of suppliers awarded a place on the Framework Agreement will be dependent on the technical quality/price of bids submitted with no anticipated minimum. Section One provides detail on the process to be followed for award of contracts (call-off) to individual suppliers via Direct Award or Mini-Competition (for each opportunity) amongst all suppliers within a particular lot. Suppliers should specify clearly within their bids their particular areas of expertise and show evidence of their abilities. Where evidence is not included, it will be assumed those skills do not exist.
