General Supply of Goods Framework Agreement
This General Supply of Goods Framework Agreement template (a "framework" or "call off" agreement) enables a
supplier of goods to establish a facility with a customer whereby from time
to time the customer can place an order with the supplier on pre-agreed
The template takes the form of an agreement containing core terms and
conditions to apply to each order. Those core terms apply to any order,
irrespective of the particular type of goods that the supplier provides to
its customer. The core terms include the ordering procedure (set out in
Schedule 1) to be followed by the customer when they decide to place an
In addition, the template provides for a set of additional terms to be
attached as Schedule 2 to the Agreement, and for those additional
terms to apply to each order in conjunction with the core terms. Once Schedule 2 containing the appropriate terms has been attached to the
Agreement, it is then signed by both parties.
The particular set of terms to be attached as Schedule 2 will depend both
on the particular type of goods to be provided and the circumstances and
requirements of the supplier. As the supplier, you might wish to attach a
copy of either your own standard terms for supply of a particular type(s)
of goods or an adapted version of those terms, or if appropriate, you might
attach as Schedule 2 the terms for supply of goods in this subfolder or one
of the other sets of terms for supply of goods which you can find in our
Business folder, adapted as necessary in either case. Whichever set of
terms you attach, those terms will apply as standard terms whenever the
customer places an order with you.
It is also possible to insert one or more additional Schedules each
containing a further set or further sets of terms, such that each different
distinct type of goods offered by the supplier is supplied on the basis of
its own set of distinct terms in the relevant Schedule.
This document does not require the customer to place any order at all, and
to that extent the document does not itself create any obligation on the
customer to purchase any particular or minimum quantity or value of goods. Similarly, the supplier does not have to accept any order. If instead you wish to impose any obligation to purchase or to supply, the document would need to be adapted accordingly. As and when the customer chooses to place an order, that order, if and when accepted, will establish a binding contract for the supplier to supply and the
customer to pay for the particular description and quantity of goods
covered by the order. This subfolder includes a standard form of order which can be attached as an Annex to the Ordering Procedure set out in Schedule 1.
Clause 4.3 of the document makes it clear that it does not impose any restriction on the supplier from supplying any third parties or on the customer from purchasing from any third parties. Therefore if any exclusivity is required, the document should be amended as necessary.
Optional phrases / clauses are enclosed in square brackets. These should be
read carefully and selected so as to be compatible with one another. Unused
options should be removed from the document.
