STAR Procurement (a shared procurement service for Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside and Trafford Councils), Glossary of Terms, published in May 2019, defines direct award as a: ‘Route to market for awarding a Call-off Contract under a Framework Agreement, where the Framework Agreement permits this mechanism, and the details of the supply price and quality for the Call-off Contract are pre-established.'
However: ‘Where the detail of the issued tender has proved insufficient to select a contractor within a Framework Agreement, a Mini-competition between appointed suppliers may also be used to determine to whom the Call-off Contract will be awarded.’
