Public Sector Organisations Commitment, V1.0†
PSOs who commit to participate in a Collaborative Category Strategy, including any pan government procurement initiatives (at any stage of its development or during the contract period) agree to:
- source their requirements through enabled contractual arrangements; and
- enter into a “binding” commitment agreement
The process to be followed to secure written commitment of a PSO is detailed below.
After making such a formal commitments as detailed in paragraphs 1.2 and 1.3 the PSO agrees that it will not subsequently fulfil their requirements outside of the Category Strategy or the particular contractual arrangement, whichever is applicable.
Furthermore any PSO’s making a formal written commitment to a Category Strategy or particular contractual arrangement will not seek to enter into any further contractual arrangements or extend any contractual arrangements within the Category without first obtaining agreement at the appropriate Collaborative Category Board (CCB).
