IT Services Framework Agreement Documents
A supplier of IT or other services will often set up a facility with a
client to enable the client to place an order with the supplier from time
to time on pre-agreed standard terms.
This is particularly convenient and time saving where the parties are
likely to subsequently enter into a series of similar transactions for one
or more types of IT services - whenever they do so, they will have already
agreed on all terms and will not need to negotiate and agree terms on each
This arrangement is usually referred to as a “framework” or “call-off”
agreement, and sometimes also as a “master ordering agreement” or “blanket
purchase agreement”. The expressions “framework” and “call-off” are often
used interchangeably to mean the same thing.
Such a “framework” or “call-off” arrangement may take the form of a master

services during the term of the Agreement, it places an order under the
ordering procedure set out in the Agreement. That order, when accepted by
the supplier, will establish a binding contract for the supplier to supply
and the client to pay for the particular type and quantity of services
covered by the order.

A suitable set of supplementary terms and conditions has to be attached as
a Schedule to the IT Services Framework Agreement to cover the provision of each particular type of IT service which the parties anticipate will be
needed from time to time. We have included several sets of supplementary
terms and conditions for this purpose, each intended to apply to a particular type of IT service. You can attach one or more of them after
adapting it or them as necessary. When a "call off" order is placed from time to time by your customer for a type of service covered by a Schedule of supplementary terms that you have attached, the IT Services Framework
Agreement and that Schedule will then automatically be deemed to apply to
