Technology Products & Associated Services

Update

This framework is the successor to Technology Products 2 (RM3733) which has recently been extended to October 2019.

This agreement will be for the supply of commodity technology goods and closely-related services for use by the whole of the UK public sector and their associated bodies and agencies, the voluntary sector, charities.

Scope

This framework will use the new public sector contract developed together with the Government Digital Service (GDS) and the Government Legal Department (GLD).In addition a technology specific schedule will be used and can be found in the attachment section below.

It will enable the continued provision of commodity technology goods and closely-related services, further details will be provided when the final lotting structure is confirmed.

Please note: the framework will not have an online catalogue included within the agreement. A specific technology products catalogue will be subject to a separate procurement activity and the Crown Commercial Service’s Upcoming Deals page should be monitored for further updates.

Market engagement

A Prior Information Notice (PIN) was published in July 2018.

The Crown Commercial Service Category team engaged and consulted with suppliers that work in this market to gain a greater understanding of the marketplace. The team also engaged with customers to find out their views on current and future requirements.

The aim of both engagements were to:

  • bring experience and knowledge to shaping the new solution
  • help identify where we can learn from past experiences to improve upon current arrangements
  • maximise commercial benefits through a robust specification of requirements
  • improve the ability to identify and include innovative products and solutions
