Audio Visual Technical Consultancy & Commissioning

A Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) for public sector customers who need complex audio visual (AV) services. Plus support services for rooms that use a range of AV technology.


UK government and public sector bodies can use these services to transform their rooms into spaces which make the best use of AV services, while making sure anyone can use their computer systems and software in their workspaces.

This will make it easier to collaborate with others and will ensure a hassle free experience.

Customers can use this agreement to:

  • design meeting spaces which will allow all colleagues to equally take part in the meeting (even if their attendance is virtual)
  • create collaboration zones and find out the best ways to integrate their AV technology
  • design acoustic and visual plans for conference rooms that will allow everyone to hear and see what they need to

This agreement can help you to achieve this by focusing on ‘interoperability’ services.

‘Interoperability’ means any computer system and software will work with your AV design. Anyone will be able to use the technology with no issue.

You can choose to use this agreement to create an end to end service for all your AV technology needs. From identifying your needs and creating a design of how your AV area will look and work, to installing your design.

You will also be able to add a support package which can include:

  • monitoring your AV area for problems
  • providing help with any future issues

Or you can pick any combination of services to better suit your complex needs.

Services available under this agreement include:

  • design consultancy
  • AV integration
  • installation and warranty
  • AV solution support

This agreement will run for three years with a possible extension of one year.
