A framework agreement is a list of preferred suppliers maintained by a Los Angeles County department for a particular service or consensus. There are framework agreements for a range of services, from street cleaning to work and training services. To recruit candidates for a framework agreement, departments create an Application for a Statement of Qualification (RFSQ), which requires candidates to submit a Statement of Qualification (SoQ) detailing their company`s skills, background and finances. When you enter into a framework agreement, it means that your social enterprise will receive work orders via email, which are district contract applications in a simplified and expedited form. In addition, the department`s buyers have even more incentives to recruit you because you have already been reviewed during the application process. Once you have concluded a framework agreement, your social enterprise is not guaranteed the possibility of entering into a contract with the county, you will be open to a number of possibilities of tender contracts. Here you will find some relevant open framework agreements. Under the ”Muni” column, a ”Y” indicates that municipalities can participate in contract pricing, but must develop their own individual contract with the supplier. An ”N” indicates that the contract and prices are not available for community participation. Municipalities should contact the registered purchaser for more information. When preparing the application in FMS, the application preparer must enter the vendor name and vendor ID associated with a framework agreement. This information can be found in the list of framework agreements.
Note: ePro recognizes that there is a framework agreement based on the vendor name and ID. The list of framework agreements contains the laboratory username of the buyer who set up the framework agreement. Contact the buyer to check if the goods or services are available in the framework agreement. In the Dept column, the specified code indicates whether the contract was signed for ”All” state departments or only for the specific code of the department. If another service wants to use the contract, that service must contact the listed buyer. Most departments first review their framework agreements when seeking bids to expedite a contract. For example, the Department of Internal Services (ISD), one of the largest departments in Los Angeles County, uses framework agreements for 52 percent of its spending, most of which are small and medium-sized contracts. However, once a contract reaches the cost of $15,000, the department must obtain bids from the general public on the SSD website.
