Contract description

  • The framework has an award support tool which runs a price competition for the customer. This allows a search by region, role and job band, and produces a list that is ranked by cost which can help customers and make direct awards - though further competition can also be run under the framework. 
  • The framework uses NHS Improvement recommended price caps and NHS employment check standards to assure workers are compliant and is free to use for those in the NHS and the wider public sector.
