Framework agreements are detailed contracts that describe all the key factors in a business transaction. Framework agreements are a subset of these contracts. A framework agreement lists the provisions that an institution – often a college, hospital or other large user – accepts when leasing land to municipalities, states or private groups. Each installation master contract is different, but most determine the rent a user must pay each month to work on a piece of land. Most also include a date when the original framework agreement expires and a new contract must be negotiated. These agreements also include certain prohibitions: for example, a municipality may prohibit a college that leases its land from building multi-storey parking garages that interfere with the views of neighbouring homeowners. Municipalities could also limit manufacturers to specific hours of operation to reduce noise pollution in the late evening. Businesses, educational institutions, medical centers, and other users may have multiple contracts with the owners of the land on which they sit. But the framework agreement replaces all these other contracts. If there is a dispute on a legal issue, the framework agreement takes precedence over all other contracts. Since the framework agreement is so important, it makes sense for users to refrain from signing such agreements until their legal representatives can carefully study the documents. The signing of a framework agreement that severely restricts, for example, the ability of companies to add new furnishing spaces or increase their workforce can affect the success of these companies.

A framework agreement governs each step that a hospital, college, production facility or other user must take to lease land. If users violate their framework agreement, they should expect sanctions provided for in the contract. These penalties vary, but may include fines, rent increases or, in the worst case, termination of the contract.
