At the end of last week, as promised at our suppliers’ briefing earlier this year, the Crown Commercial Service announced that the new framework Technology Products and Associated Services (replacing Tech Products 2) has opened for applications.
The framework agreement is for the supply of commodity technology goods and closely-related services for use by the public sector. The number of Lots on the framework has been reduced to four, compared to six on TP2. While TP2 had a value of about £1bn, the estimated value for TP3 is going to be between £5bn and £7bn. The new framework will have a simplified award process, allowing expedited purchasing across all lots.
The tender closes in early June, and the framework award will be in September. You can find more information on Technology Products & Associated Services here. Good luck to all applying!
