Entities which are not public sector bodies may also use the Framework Agreement if the Authority is satisfied that: 

 

- Such entity is calling-off goods and/or services directly, solely and exclusively in order to satisfy contractual obligations to one or more public sector bodies, all of which are entitled to use the Framework Agreement on their own account;
• all goods to be called-off by it are to be used directly, solely and exclusively to provide goods and/or services at sites occupied by such public sector body(ies); and 

 

- It will pass the benefit of the call-off contract to such public sector body(ies) directly, in full and on a purely “pass-through” basis. Accordingly there must be no mark-up, management fee, service charge or any similar cost solely in relation to the supply of goods and/or services imposed on the relevant public sector body(ies), who must be able to benefit from the terms of the Framework Agreement in a like manner and to the same extent as if using the Framework Agreement on its/their own account.

(b) they have legal personality; and

 


(c) they have any of the following characteristics:

 


(d) they are financed, for the most part, by the State, regional or local authorities, or by other bodies governed by public law; 

 

(e) they are subject to management supervision by those authorities or bodies; or

 


(f) they have an administrative, managerial or supervisory board, more than half of whose members are appointed by the State, regional or local authorities, or by other bodies governed by public law. 

 

For the avoidance of doubt, any successor bodies of any of the above entities shall be entitled to place orders and shall be deemed Participating Authorities for the purposes of this Framework Agreement.
