Summary

Provides public sector buyers with a flexible way to buy technology products and associated services. Includes all their end user devices, technology infrastructure and software needs.

Description

This is the next iteration of this agreement and will replace the current Technology Products and Associated Services (TePAS).

Our aim is to design a simple, flexible and efficient route to market which will provide all your needs for technology products and help you to develop end to end digital solutions.

This means you will be able to buy both the products and services you need from resellers and the original equipment manufacturers (OEM)s in a sustainable and cost effective manner.

This agreement will offer the same range of products and services from our current TePAS agreement. 

After extensive market research TePAS 2 will further support specific sectors such as health and education through an expanded scope.

Benefits

  • provides a complete range of technology products and services for a variety of purchase models
  • simplifies the customer experience, especially for your ‘technology as a service”’ needs
  • enables sustainability by providing end to end services for the lifecycle of technology products for example: buy, upgrade, maintain and recycle

Customer engagement

We started customer engagement in January 2022 with pre-market engagement webinars.

Throughout 2022 we held further customer engagement sessions to gain feedback and insight for future needs. These sessions included:

  • one to one customer sessions
  • customer webinars
  • in person events

We have collected the insight from these sessions into a number of feedback themes which has helped us to shape this new agreement.

Supplier Engagement

Initial supplier engagement took place in January 2022. Since then we have held further supplier engagement events to help gain feedback on this agreement as well as market trends. These events included supplier webinars and one to one sessions.

The last industry day took place at TechUK in September 2022.

The information we gathered from our supplier engagement events and the industry day has helped us to shape this new agreement.
