The above Public Sector Bodies have a need for a compliant Procurement Vehicle to access a range of Information Communications Technology, Cloud and related services including connectivity, telecommunications, equipment, hardware, software, services, consultancy and change management, maintenance, support and infrastructure to meet the diverse needs of Education, Central and Local Government and other Public Sector and associated organisations.
This Framework will be a single Lot sole supplier Framework. The contract will be let on a 4-year term. The successful bidder will be expected to demonstrate they can control, manage and deliver against the full range of required areas within the ITT and maintain and integrate such competing sub-contractors as necessary to ensure choice and flexibility in each category, best value, and seamless interoperability. At all times choice, service, and cost are paramount. Sustainability and continuity of supply are important, as too is the need to ensure the innovation of products and service as well as the need to manage both small enterprises and large corporations.
