Northern Ireland Assembly Framework for the Engagement of Temporary Workers


eTendersNI Resource ID: 3449722


The Northern Ireland Assembly Commission (NIAC) is seeking to appoint a number of suppliers to a framework contract for the provision of temporary workers who will be used to fill vacancies. 

It is intended that temporary worker requirements will be split across two separate lots based on Northern Ireland Assembly Secretariat Management Structure.


Lot 1: AG8 Assembly Usher and Control Room Operative, AG8 Clerical Officer and AG7 Clerical Supervisor.

Lot 2: AG6 Assistant Assembly Clerk and above, and all professional/specialist roles. Please note some AG8 and AG7 roles may fall under the specialist/professional umbrella.


For lot 1, it is anticipated that up to 3 suppliers may be appointed, and for lot 2, up to 5 suppliers may be appointed. They will be the highest ranked suppliers after the evaluation process has been completed and they are able to satisfy the necessary supporting evidence.

The initial contract period will be for 36 months with two optional extension periods of up to 12 months each.

Whilst there is no minimum work guaranteed to any supplier appointed to the framework, the estimated contract value is approximately £4M for the full contract period, taking into account estimated pay rises each year.

This call for tender opportunity has been published on the eTendersNI portal and all information is available there.

You will only see the opportunity and be able to bid for it if you are registered on eTendersNI.  Should you be interested in this call for tender, please register on eTendersNI. Please note that all correspondence should be sent through the eTendersNI portal.

If you have any issues please contact the Procurement Office at or by telephone 028 9052 1526.
