While your business is more likely to be technically successful with more than one licensed supplier, competition can make success incredibly difficult and you should focus on the award criteria and carefully analyze the purchase documents before launching the tender. Frames can be set up by a particular buyer, for example. B by a university that focuses solely on its specific use. Others are wider, such as ESPO, Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation, Crown Commercial Services, Procurement for Housing etc. They will create framework conditions for their members, for example. B groups of housing companies or schools. So once you have been approved and successfully awarded on their frame, you get mini-contests and you will thus have access to a much wider group of customers. The framework contract itself may be a contract, but only if the contract involves an obligation to purchase. In this case, it is treated like any other treaty and EU procurement rules apply. The most common use of a framework agreement is when there is no timetable or flexibility for certain services. Unlike regular offers or offers, there is probably no guarantee of work if a company secures a contract, and there is probably no guarantee for the work, with the order documents and the terms and conditions that flow from them. Agreed conditions are made available to allow LGPS funds to “revoke” the framework to meet their own local needs.
In the public sector, there are a number of central public procurement entities whose objectives are the creation and management of framework agreements in line with EU procurement directives  and which are available for use by designated public bodies. In the United Kingdom, for example, crown commercial service, municipal consortia such as Eastern Shires Purchasing Organisation (ESPO) and Yorkshire Purchasing Organisation (YPO) and consortia, in the areas of higher education and training: APUC (in Scotland), Crescent Purchasing Consortium (CPC),  London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC),  North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC)  Organizations must ensure that existing and future framework agreements (including those concluded before the legislation came into force) are in compliance with the RGPD. All relevant market documents must refer to the new legislation. In the negotiations, a framework agreement is an agreement between two parties, which acknowledges that the parties have not reached a final agreement on all issues that are relevant to the relations between them, but that they have agreed on enough issues to move relations forward, agreeing further details in the future.
