Service options

There are three service options you can choose from:

Preferred supplier list (lot 1)

The preferred supplier list is supported by our agency selection tool to help you find suitable suppliers in your area. You’ll need to know the type of worker and the length of assignment you need. You can then contact suitable suppliers directly and complete the short order form for those you’d like to work with.

Master vendor managed service (lot 2)

Master vendors provide workers either directly from their own resource pool or from other suppliers in their approved supply chain. As there are several suppliers available, you’ll need to run a further competition to select the supplier that’s right for you.

Neutral vendor managed service (lot 3)

A neutral vendor creates contracts with other suppliers to fulfil your requirements, but doesn’t provide candidates of their own. There is one neutral vendor managed service provider on the framework so you can contact them directly to sign an order form.

The short order form

The short order form means you and the agency are agreeing terms that favour your school. To download a copy of the short order form, please visit the deal web page.
