A Single Negotiating Framework (SNF) (previously known variously as “Agreement Framework” or “Framework for Agreement” or “Single Negotiating Form”) is a preliminary draft of the final agreement that is like a “Single Negotiating Text” (sometimes referred to as a “Single Negotiation Text“) but contains blanks representing decisions that have not yet been agreed to. A completed SNF will include a summary of the issues and options or negotiating ranges for each of the associated variables.
