  • This framework will provide ultimate flexibility for supplier innovation, supplier growth and supplier-customer partnerships across the NHS and wider public sector.
  • Mechanisms will be put in place that will allow suppliers to approach LPP to compliantly add new products to their framework portfolio across the full range of different clinical digital solution types included within the scope of the framework.
  • The framework will also allow direct award from either a list price catalogue or as new modules, additional licenses and license and maintenance renewals for existing software included within the scope of the framework.
  • The catalogue list price direct award mechanism enables swift, efficient transformation and easier standardisation of care pathways across a Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) or Integrated Care Systems (ICS); while retaining best value. Best value is ensured through direct award as the Example Local Requirements Tool encourages framework supplier soft market testing prior to award. This has been specifically designed to result in a transparent catalogue of national list pricing against a multitude of potential local requirement scenarios. Alternatively, best value can also be achieved via further competition.
