oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Unpacking framework agreements for the delivery and maintenance of infrastructure
ISO 10845-1 defines a framework agreement as an agreement between an employer and one or more contractors, the purpose of which is to establish the terms governing contracts to be awarded during a given period, in particular with regard to price and, where appropriate, the quantity envisaged. Framework agreements enable an employer to procure engineering and construction works, goods and services on an instructed basis (call-off) over a term without any commitment to the quantum of work instructed in the absence of a fully developed scope of work. This may be achieved by issuing a package, batch or task order in terms of a contract during the term of the contract, i.e. an instruction to provide works, to supply items of goods in a batch, or work within a service within a stated period of time.
