2. Cost or price data must be collected prior to the award of a non-competitive contract or change if the price analysis is not sufficient to determine the adequacy of the price. Only the data necessary for the determination must be consulted. Before agreeing the price, the contractor must have the data updated by the supplier to the most recent data for which the data is reasonably available. (e) comparison of proposed prices with independent estimates of postal costs (see 2.1.3.b). 2. As a general rule, cost analysis is only carried out when there is no adequate price competition and no method of price analysis guarantees a fair and appropriate price analysis. It should be limited to cost elements that require precise analysis to protect the interests of the mail. If a limited number of cost elements provide a reasonable analysis, the contractor should receive only the data necessary to support such an analysis. Framework price agreements differ from other price agreements by creating shares from an existing order. You can choose from a frame order the items you want to order.

When you create requirements, you can set up the standard cost structure to refer to frame prices. For example, your hardware company may have a surface control for interior paint in a variety of colors. The agreement includes a start date, an end date and a minimum order. In light of the above, it is clear that the price is not expressly included in an agreement or that there is no clear mechanism for determining that price; that the contract in question could, in all likelihood, be invalidated by uncertainty and, beyond that, by consensus. 5. If a supplier and a subcontractor have provided cost or price data, the Post Office has the right to reduce the price of the main contract, in accordance with the clauses of item 5.1.2.h, if it has been significantly increased because a subcontractor has transmitted incorrect data. This right applies regardless of whether the data provides cost estimates or sustained firm agreements between subcontractors and the supplier. (c) excluding amounts for certain contingencies in contracts, where they provide for price adjustments on the basis of eventuality.
