Duration of the framework agreement: Duration in year(s): 10
Justification for a framework agreement, the duration of which exceeds four years: This single supplier agreement (“the agreement”) will enable the provision of the specified services to all UK government departments, executive agencies, non-ministerial departments, non-ministerial departmental bodies and other arms length bodies. The agreement is capable of being characterised as a “framework agreement” for the purposes of Directive 2004/18/EC and the Public Contracts Regulations 2006. The proposed length of the agreement is up to 10 years with options for termination after 4 or more years. This is to allow time for the establishment of a shared services centre in the private sector to provide shared services to central UK Government. This will require significant capital investment including in migrations of central UK government organisations to shared services and potentially in the maintenance and development of the technology platform.
