This is a national (UK wide) Framework Agreement with 8 Product lots available, split by region with A – Scotland Wide (APUC members) and B – England and Wales (NEUPC, LUPC, SUPC, HEPCW members), so it provides access to national and local contractors.

Each lot is supported by a Core Product List of frequently used items with fixed pricing and the following added value services:
  • Personalisation / Branding (with the exception of Lot 5 – Footwear)
  • Repair and Takeback for damaged and redundant items
  • Measuring / fitting / issuing services
  • Sustainable / Green / Vegan clothing and footwear options

Appointment to the Framework Agreement was evaluated on a weighting on a ratio of 50% Technical and 50% Commercial so the Framework offers an excellent blend of good quality products and services with competitive pricing. The Framework covered strong sustainability measurement, including fair working practices and supply chain traceability.
