Price reductions for the Recruitment Services framework agreement

As part of Buying Solutions’ commitment to achieve best value for money solutions for its customers and drive down rates,  the Professional Services team have negotiated reduced rates on the Recruitment Services framework agreement..

Suppliers on the Recruitment Services framework agreement were asked to reduce their indicative rates in December 2010, and customers can now take advantage of these new reduced prices, which are available on the Buying Solutions website(please note customers must be logged in to view this information). Over 80% of the suppliers on the framework agreement have now reduced their rates by up to 28%.

The new prices do not affect the further competition process and customers still have the opportunity to drive prices down using the further completion.
