DIRECT AWARD: Beneficiaries can select a capable supplier for each or both Lots through the standard services award process or by identifying capable supply locally to award. This may simply involve a local process of engagement with awarded suppliers to ascertain a shortlist and utilise a supplier that can meet requirements or can be used to support with any supplier renewal requirements.  

FURTHER COMPETITION: Beneficiaries can run further competition to establish a capable supplier for each or both Lots through the competed services award process. This may simply involve a local procurement process, supplier presentations, engagement with HealthTrust Europe or a full mini competition process to suit.  

PHASING PROCESSES: Beneficiaries may consider the utilisation of single or multiple awarded suppliers to fulfil short, medium and long-term requirements via a range of temp-to-perm, fixed-term, national and international recruitment campaigns to maximise overall success. Volume requirements can be phased over a period of up to four years under a call-off contract to support with budget planning, local on-boarding resource and development of the workforce strategy..
