Direct Award

Customers are able to Direct Award to any contractor on the Lot regardless of ranking. To do this you need a justifiable reason for awarding outside of rank 1. You will not need to ask those ranked before your preferred supplier to step aside. If you’d like to speak to us about this in more detail please get in touch.

How long will this take me?

A direct award will take approximately 3-4 weeks depending on your internal approval processes.

Mini Competition

You can also run a mini-competition from this framework. You’ll be able to use your own specification and cost model. You can also choose your own cost / quality split and quality questions. All pricing submitted by contractors must be linked to the framework.

How long will this take me?

Once you have your specification and cost model ready, the tender process takes approximately 6-8 weeks, depending on your internal approval processes.

Who can access this framework?

Any publicly funded body can use this framework – access is not limited to SEC Members alone. Full details can be found here.
