Bidders may rely on the capacities of other suitable entities to achieve the minimum turnover requirement if those other entities are jointly liable for contracts executed under the framework.

The successful lead organisations must commit to minimum spend target of 30 % with SME sub-consultants (not limited to the region).

This Integrated Consultancy Framework (ICF) framework will be open to all public sector organisations in the area described above and will provide both of the following 2 services:
