Jewson has had a framework agreement with Buying Solutions
(previously OGCbuying.solutions) for over 25 years.
Having to start from scratch with the competitive tendering
process can take several months if full compliance with the OJEU is
required. Buying Solutions estimate that customers can save an
average of 77 days - and all the associated pre-purchase costs - by
placing a contract against a pre-completed framework agreement.
By choosing a pre-accredited supplier such as Jewson, customers
can avoid this long and costly tendering process, drawing on the
framework agreement on a call-off basis. Our products and services
have been rigorously assessed and independently reviewed to ensure
that we consistently provide excellent quality and value for money.
We are frequently benchmarked against other external offers to
ensure customers consistently receive the most competitive

By working closely with customers throughout the public sector,
