FRAMEWORK AGREEMENTS: PRACTICAL EXERCISES AND NEW KNOWLEDGE
Framework agreements are procurement techniques, thus not a public contract – though, under specific circumstances, they might become one – nor are they a type of procurement procedure. In fact, they are an organisational infrastructure that principally helps contracting authorities buy on a large scale and lower the administrative burden of public procurement processes. They are extensively used across the several EU Member States. The growing complexity of framework agreements and the lack of additional, more specified rules on frameworks in Member States’ legislation have recently led to increased case law.
In this workshop on framework agreements, we will cover the fundamentals of framework agreements and dive into new developments in this field. You will also gain access to additional training materials that will assist you in preparation for the workshop or recaping the workshop later on.
