Use of NTNU’s framework agreements

NTNU has several binding general framework agreements that must be used when we purchase goods or services.

When ordering something covered by an existing framework agreement, it is important to use the supplier we have an agreement with.

Some framework agreements require a competition between different suppliers before the product or service can be ordered. A competition between framework agreement suppliers is called a “mini-competition”, and at NTNU these are held by procurement advisors.

Information about the agreement in the Contract catalogue will specify when a mini-competition is required, including at what value the contract needs to be for this to apply (if relevant) and which criteria must be used in the competition.

NTNU’s framework agreements may also have other additional provisions for use. Further information about this will be available on the relevant agreement in the Contract catalogue.

It is important to note that none of NTNU’s agreements should be used for private purchases.
