What is a Framework Contract or IQC?

A Framework/IQC is a contract type used to ensure the rapid mobilization of high-quality technical expertise through all the phases of the project cycle, with a focus on identification, formulation, and evaluation. Framework Contracts are commonly used by the European Union/European Commission and the UK’s FCDO, and streamline procurement procedures and administrative burden by pre-selecting contractors who can then compete for specific projects within the overall contract.
DT Global has been a leader in Framework Contracts since 2005 through our legacy companies. We have a team of over 20 Framework Contract specialists working from our offices in Spain, the UK, and Poland — all specializing in Project Cycle and Project Management, and able to provide the rapid response and high quality implementation that makes our Framework Contract Unit a top contractor throughout Europe and the UK.
DT Global implements Framework Contracts globally across a wide range of sectors, including Public Finance Management, Infrastructure, Energy, Digitalization, Democracy and Electoral Support, Innovative Financing, and Public Administration Reform.
