Framework agreement

The framework agreement regulates which goods and services the supplier will be able to deliver. It also speaks of the prices and commercial terms (eg delivery terms, warranties, payment terms) that will apply.

To find which framework agreements KTH has, use KTH:s contract catalouge  and/or KTH's electronic ordering system WISUM . If you do not find the information in Wisum any of them, you have to look at The Legal, Financial and Administrative Services Agency agreement at .

All orders must be made via KTH's electronic ordering system WISUM

Renewed Competition

For orders exceeding 100,000 SEK (check the sum, can be different for some framework agreement) at the date of delivery or if a delivery agreement is to be concluded, renewed competition (FKU) will apply. This means that all contract providers within the current product group are questioned and may submit a bid/quotation. Contact the purchasing manager  to get access to the template needed to do this.

Exception from purchase from a framework agreement

Direct procurement can never be made if the product/service is on a framework agreement except if there are exceptional reasons. Such reasons may be:

  • If you have an experimental set up or a series of experiments that have been running for a long time with the same products.
  • If you have to use a specific product due to technical reasons or because it is sold only by one company.
  • It is NOT OK to buy a product outside the agreement only because it is cheaper.

It is the Head of school that approves whether direct procurement can be used or not. The decision should always be in writing, contact the school's purchasing manager to get access to the template.

Then follow any of CBH's procurement procedures.
