ESPO, acting on behalf of public sector bodies, negotiates a range of EU compliant framework arrangements which are fundamentally designed to enable customers to deal directly with the nominated suppliers.
For the vast majority of frameworks here, you will place orders and enquiries for products and services directly to the supplier(s).
All agreements featured on this site fall into three geographical types: National frameworks; Regional frameworks (for use throughout one or two specific regions); and Authority Specific contracts.
The frameworks are open to participation by all public sector bodies and UK registered Charities within the defined geographical areas. These areas are defined by illustrated icons shown here. Each framework summary clearly denotes whether the framework is National, Regional or Authority Specific (bespoke frameworks, which are tailored to your exact requirements).
You can access the framework summary for any framework on this site without providing us with any of your details. However, in order to download framework schedules, you will need an eligible e-mail address that identifies you as a public sector body or a valid UK registered Charity. If you are not part of a public sector body or a registered charity, then you may still be entitled to use our framework schedules. Simply follow the sign-up link, submit your details to us and we will get back to you!
All frameworks have been subject to a compliant procurement process and the vast majority are let within the European Union.
All frameworks are construed in accordance with English law and are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the English courts.
You can browse through the frameworks by clicking on any of the colour-coded 'category' tabs at the top of this page, or you can use the search bar to locate a specific framework. There is also an option to view all the frameworks by clicking on the 'A-Z' link below.
