We are renewing the NPS vehicle spares framework agreement which expires on 31 December 2020. Due to the initial COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on both suppliers and the NPS, we are now working to a later timetable and it is envisaged that the new agreement will now be live in late spring 2021.
If you want to continue using the services under the existing agreement until the new one is in place, you must set up a call-off contract with the supplier in your region by 31 December 2020. Due to the ongoing uncertainties around COVID-19, we recommend that this is for 6 months with an option to extend for a further 6 months. There is no need to run a further competition to do this.
You may want to include a clause allowing you to transfer onto the new agreement within either 6 month period.
