Framework Agreement (panel of contractors)

What is the best practice, protocol and governance in relation to contract variations, more specifically:

  • When a panel of contractors have been appointed and one contractor requests a change to the standard contracts terms and conditions e.g. changing payment terms from 30 days to 10 days.
  • Is an addendum always required int this regard or can it be managed operationally? Must all other contractors be treated equally and fair, i.e. if the institution agrees to a change for one contractor must the change also be made to the others?

Thanking you in advance for your assistance.

APMP Certification – Do I really need it?

Hi Chris

I am from Pakistan and work as a Tender Manager at Biomedical Firm. I have been in the role for 10 years.

I am writing to get advice on APMP Certification and whether it is useful for me?

If you believe it is, how would you suggest I best achieve it?

I’m also keen to understand how I can best position my skills to secure a job in the UK/US?

I have joined Bid solutions Group a few days ago and I have found it a really useful resource.

Thank you
