An additional framework agreement is not necessary for this purpose. Since the framework contract itself does not guarantee that work will be awarded to you, it would appear that the clearsprings principle would apply, i.e. the work is fragmented and it is not possible to determine in advance where the work will be done, so employees should not be transferred to TUPE. But I would either give specific legal advice from your lawyer and/or price for the possibility that you need to take care of the employees to do so. The conclusion of a framework agreement must be tendered in the Official Journal (OJ) if the expected value is above the financial threshold, i.e. £113,000 for central government/NHS and £174,000 for local authorities, etc. When republishing our frames, my question is how we evaluate the value for money in the ITT phase and how this translates into the mini-competition phase. I am currently studying framework agreements and the issue has arisen in subjects of revision: “European laws are not relevant to us in Britain – Discuss” Please, you can advise me. You are quite right that a framework contract is not a contract. A contract is concluded only when an appeal is awarded in accordance with the conditions of the framework. .
