With respect to the second point regarding the addition of new positions of trust in the framework, this is not at all permissible. The parts of the framework must be identified all from the outset clearly, as soon as it is established that all subscribers are both supplier and buyer either in or they are out. No one can join at a later date. The terms of the original agreement must also be respected throughout the life, i.e. if the price is set or if there are firm discounts on the list price, etc., they cannot be renegotiated as part of the mini-competition. I find it hard to find clues as to when the implementation of framework agreements has actually begun and whether there is a concrete reason for its popularity? recession? Would a multi-supplier framework agreement with a combination of appeal methods, i.e. direct awarding of contracts of up to $50,000, and the reopening of mini-competition on that $50,000 threshold be contrary to the rules and guidelines? If the terms of a framework allow direct allocation, but the chosen supplier opposes it, it also depends on the terms of the framework agreement to determine whether the Authority can go to the nearest supplier, etc. The answer depends on the terms that were both of the framework agreement when it was originally awarded. Most agreements do not require the buyer or supplier to buy or deliver, that is, it facilitates the ordering and delivery process. Therefore, a supplier who receives a direct premium from a buyer is free to refuse that order.
This may seem strange, but the supplier may be busy with other orders and no capacity at this time, or the conditions are no longer advantageous to them, etc. An adjudicator power may use a framework agreement to place an appeal contract only within four years of the framework. The revoked contract may be delivered beyond the duration of the framework, but no new consultation may be granted. It was also found that the municipality could carry out a contract at the same time, although it chose not to do so at that time, because it is not in the spirit of the framework. 1. Given the duration of the 4-year framework agreement and the small number of acquisitions, I do not think that the contracting authority should tender each contract through the award of a public procurement contract.
