Framework agreements save time and costs in a procurement process by avoiding the need to renegotiate terms and conditions of sale. With respect to long-term purchases, these agreements help to improve the relationship between buyers and sellers, working together to provide tailored solutions that better meet the needs of both parties. They support long-term relationships with suppliers, creating a more favourable business environment for more sustainable investment and employment, and reducing wasteful processes and physical resources. The initial work required to create such a framework is more than that required for the tendering and the awarding of a single market, but the benefits of electricity will far outweigh. Companies that have entered into framework contracts have received up to 10% of the annual improvements in delivery time and costs.
