The terms of the proposed Framework Agreement will also permit a public sector contracting body, awarding a contract under this Framework Agreement, to publish the text of any Call Off Agreement, subject to possible redactions at the discretion of the contracting body . Further information on transparency can be found at:

http://ccs.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/about-government-procurement-service/transparency-and-accountability/transparency-procurement

The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right (i) not to award any Framework Agreement as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates. If the Authority decides to enter into a Framework Agreement with the successful supplier, this does not mean that there is any guarantee of subsequent contracts being awarded. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to Framework Agreement award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential suppliers. Any orders placed under this Framework Agreement will form a separate contract (Call Off Agreement) under the scope of this Framework between the supplier and the specific requesting other contracting body. The Contracting Authority and other contracting bodies utilising the Framework Agreement reserve the right to use any electronic portal during the life of the agreement.
The Contracting Authority reserves the right for an electronic auction to be held by Public Sector bodies during further competitions among the parties to the Framework Agreement(s).
The duration referenced in Section II.1.4 is for the placing of orders.
The value provided in Section II.1.4 is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through this framework agreement.
For the avoidance of doubt the maximum number of participants to the Framework is envisaged to be 30 (10 Suppliers per each of the three Lots). Where however the Final Score achieved by multiple Potential Providers ranks them in equal 10th positioning in the applicable Lot, then all Potential Providers ranked in 10th position will be awarded a Framework Agreement.

From 2.4.2014 the Governmen introduced its new Government Security Classifications (GSC) classification scheme to replace the current Government Protective Marking Scheme (GPMS).
