  • this deal is fully compliant with EU procurement legislation.
  • our dedicated team is always on hand to offer help and advice.

Our framework has three service options you can choose from:

  • preferred supplier list (lot 1)
  • master vendor managed service (lot 2)
  • neutral vendor managed service (lot 3)

Preferred supplier list

This is supported by our agency selection tool to help you find suitable suppliers in your area.

Master vendor managed service

Master vendors provide workers directly from their own resource pool or from other suppliers in their approved supply chain.

Neutral vendor managed service

A neutral vendor creates contracts with other suppliers to fulfil your requirements, but doesn't provide candidates of their own.

Why choose a managed service option?

Our managed service providers do all the hard work for you to the same audited, accredited standards as the preferred supplier list.
