suppliers booked

Thursday 27 June 2024, 1:30-3:00pm



Frameworks and Dynamic Purchasing Systems (DPS) are fast becoming a popular way for buyers to manage common purchases. Frameworks and DPS's can also be a lucrative source of business for suppliers but it is vital you understand the agreement before getting on a Framework. 

At this training, you will get an understanding of what a framework is, the common features of a framework and why buyers use frameworks. One of SDP's expert trainers will also talk you through the two main methods of winning business on a framework i.e. Direct Award and Call Off Contract.

Overview of what you will learn: 

  • What is a Framework? 
  • How to get on a Framework
  • How to win business off a Framework 
  • What is a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS)?

At the end of the session, there will be an interactive Q&A session where you will have the opportunity to ask any burning questions you may have. As well as the chance to hear what other SME businesses on Scotland have to say. 

This event is suitable for Level 2 (Intermediate) for people who know about bidding but need to develop specific knowledge and skills.
