Section VI: Complementary information

VI.3)Additional information:

The Framework Agreements differ from those let under the non-light touch regime in that the Council, exercising its flexibility, will re-open it quarterly 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 Agreement may have a maximum total duration of 10 years. With the consent of Norfolk County Council, this Framework can be used by any District Council, any Public Sector body, any Educational establishment and NHS bodies operating in the geographical county of Norfolk or in any adjoining counties. The estimated value has been calculated based on the estimated annual levy payable by Norfolk County Council multiplied by the maximum length of the framework. We have estimated a value based on the assumption that all those organisations who have indicated they will use the Framework will do so and added these figures together.
