As with any NHS SBS-managed executive, it was created through a robust procurement process that included financial audits and quality assurance evaluation. For many public sector organisations across the country that will use it, the contractual basis ojEU (Official Journal of the European Union) to be negotiated is essential. This gives public sector organisations the confidence that they are not just buying to save time and money, but at the same time ensuring compliance with the UK-One and EU`s complex procurement rules.

The framework agreement is freely available to all public sector organisations in the UK To ensure that buyers have access to the right suppliers, the agreement includes a lot divided into 3 subcategory lots. Each subset is determined by the total value of the order: it also means that executive users have the flexibility to purchase directly from a listed supplier or to launch mini-tenders according to their individual requirements, while there is even the possibility of a fully managed service in which a provider is allocated for the delivery of all services under the framework agreement. Elsewhere, measured futures contracts can also be entered into for the maintenance of buildings, electricity, mechanics, painting and decoration. Meanwhile, a good mix of large national and regional SMEs ensures that it is responsive to local needs.
Within each lot, there is also a wide range of specialized services. For example, when an NHS trust moves to a new hospital site, providers who provide “remote” services can offer assistance with the removal of office furniture and equipment, the transportation of expensive and cumbersome medical equipment, potential storage problems, and the entire management of the project around such a stage.
