Legal form to be taken by the grouping of suppliers, contractors or service providers to whom the contract is to be awarded:
contracts will be entered into with the economic operator only. Whilst a “partnership” or consortium model may, in practice, be adopted by the economic operator from a contractual perspective the economic operator will be required to assume the role of a “prime contractor” in respect of any subcontractors and will be required to assume liability and responsibility for the acts and omissions of any subcontractors utilised by them to deliver services under the framework.
