Closed system

The Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply (CIPS) Glossary of procurement terms, defines a closed system as: ‘A system or process that, once started, does not allow new entrants. A framework agreement might have multiple buyers and multiple suppliers, but once set up no additional buyers or suppliers can be added to it.’
