We are creating a user group for customers interested in using this agreement. The aim of the group will be to initially ensure all framework guidance documentation is tested and clear for when the framework goes live. The group will then become the focal point for providing feedback on how well the framework is performing and support improving the usability of the agreement. If you are interested in being part of the user group please email projectmanagement[at]crowncommercial.gov[dot]uk.
