The framework is multi-lotted and is open to multiple suppliers under each lot and is being let under the LightTouch Regime. The framework agreement differs from those let under the non-light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, will keep the Framework open for new applicants throughout its term and reserves the right to extend the framework from its 48 month initial term for an additional 48 months, in two period of 24 months. Contracts awarded under the framework may have a maximum total duration of 10 years. No contract awarded from the framework will be permitted to extend beyond 1.3.2037.
