Whilst HTE is not required by procurement legislation to do so, it has extended the principles of the public tendering so as to assure its private sector customers of best value and open and transparent processes. In the United Kingdom these entities are registered with the Care Quality Commission (a list of providers can be found at http://www.cqc.org.uk/sites/default/files/cqc_locations_export.csv). In the European Union, such entities are regulated by equivalent regulatory bodies, each of which maintains an equivalent list.

In purchasing goods and/or services or awarding contracts under the Framework Agreement, HTE is:
(a) acting in its capacity as agent for UHCW in relation to the public and voluntary sector bodies listed above only; and
(b) acting in its capacity as principal in relation to the private sector bodies (and not as agent of UHCW).
