II.1.4)Short description:

ESPO (in partnership with YPO) is seeking to establish a framework agreement with a number of service providers for the provision of Language services. The key aim of the framework will be to promote cost savings and create efficiencies by providing customers access to pre-approved service providers whom they may appoint using a simple and streamlined procurement process.

ESPO has established a commercial trading company, ESPO Trading Ltd, whose target clients are third sector organisations such as national and local charities, public sector mutual organisations and other organisations involved in the delivery of services to or for the public sector. The successful supplier may be asked to enter into an additional separate framework agreement (the second framework) with ESPO Trading Ltd on materially similar terms to that found in the tender pack to be entered into by ESPO itself.

Any second framework agreement will be a purely commercial agreement and will, for the avoidance of doubt, not be governed by the Public Contract Regulations 2015 or other public procurement legislation. ESPO Trading Ltd may enter into the second framework agreement with the successful supplier and make it available to third sector clients who themselves are not required to follow the Public Contracts Regulations 2015 or other public procurement legislation. Accordingly, this is provided for bidders' information only.

— an eAuction process may be used to award subsequent call-off contracts following the reopening of competition among the parties to the framework agreement.
