Details

The Flexible Framework is a widely used self assessment mechanism developed by the business-led Sustainable Procurement Task Force, which allows organisations to measure and monitor their progress on sustainable procurement over time.

The framework was designed so that it could be used by all organisations: from those with significant levels of procurement expertise and resource to those with very limited resource  at their disposal.
