MANAGED SERVICES FOR TEMPORARY AGENCY RESOURCES – FRAMEWORK
The awarding authority is seeking to establish a framework agreement with a number of suppliers for the provision of Managed Services for Temporary Agency Resources (MSTAR), on a managed service basis. Managed services will include neutral vendor solutions and master vendor solutions. All types of temporary agency workers will be included e.g. from grounds maintenance and administrative through to interim to specialist contractors including supply teachers. The framework may be divided into lots to cater for different customer requirements, for example, schools. It is the intention that the framework agreement will be the recognised route of choice to the managed service (temporary staffing) market for Local Government and the wider public sector. An eAuction process may be used to award subsequent call off contracts following the reopening of competition among the parties to the Framework Agreement.
