Misused word

Alternatives
in connection with, as part of, under etc.

Explanation
Like “foresee,” “in the frame of,” meaning “in connection with,” “in the context of” or “within the scope of” corresponds literally to an expression found in a number of other languages (Italian “nel quadro di,” German “im Rahmen von,” French “dans le cadre de” etc). Unfortunately, this expression does not exist in English.
