Decision Maker: Director of Finance and Support Services

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


This report sets out the proposals for the procurement of consultancy and specialist professional services.

Call-off contracts each have an individual statement of work or programme that is subsequently formalised following competitive procurement or direct award into a call-off contract. The use of the framework will be subject to the appropriate governance on a case by case basis as part of an options appraisal. 

There is no financial commitment to this call-off contract, but it sets the terms and conditions of business between the Council and Bloom Procurement Services Ltd. The Council has paid Bloom Procurement Services £1.2m for projects put through the current framework over the last 3 financial years.




The Director of Finance and Support Services has approved access to the new iteration of the Nepro 3 Framework Agreement, via a Call off Contract, which will run from 2020 to a maximum term of seven years with annual reviews.
