Work has commenced on the tendering of a new Education Supplies framework, with an anticipated launch date of September 2018. This framework will supersede the Negotiated Agreement we have with Crown Commercial Services for Stationery. We intend to have a "One Stop Shop" lot especially created for Schools & Academies catering for all your office supplies requirements.
The current format is for the framework to be split into 2 lots, however, we are reviewing spend and welcome any feedback from members.
We would be grateful if you could please provide any information that you might wish to be considered for inclusion in the tender, any feedback on the existing agreements including your experience of using the current framework. Knowing about your institution's experience with frameworks and any future requirements will help us to define what is best included in the tender documents. The information you provide will not only form the basis for the specification but will also help us map CPC member requirements as accurately as possible. We would like to arrange a Tele forum user group and would be very keen to hear from you should you wish to get involved. We will then arrange a follow up call regarding the same process to review the tender documents. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to express an interest in participating in the user group.
