Total has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service’s (CCS) new Technology Products 2 procurement framework. This comes just two months after Total was awarded a place on CCS’s G-Cloud 8 framework, for cloud computing services, and enables Total to supply ‘commodity’ technology products to UK public sector organisations.
“Procurement frameworks are an important part of the UK Government’s drive to achieve maximum value from public sector expenditure, and Total’s inclusion in both Technology Products 2 and G-Cloud 8 underlines Total’s ability to provide public sector customers with value across a wide range of products as well as key cloud services,” explains Kieran O’Connor, Sales Director at Total.
Technology Products 2, the second issue of this procurement framework, is a UK Government initiative to simplify the procurement of commodity technology products, by public sector organisations in central and local government, health, education, not-for-profit and devolved administrations.
Managed and administered by the Crown Commercial Service, an executive agency of the UK Government’s Cabinet Office, the framework compromises of six lots each with a specific focus.
Total has been awarded a place on Lot 1, the provision of hardware – typically as part of a large project, and Lot 6, the supply of commoditised hardware and software products through CCS’s online catalogue.
“Clients throughout the public sector can now source a wide range of IT products and cloud services from Total with confidence – delivering value to their stakeholders while benefitting from the friendly, responsive and reliable service all our customers know us for,” comments Kieran O’Connor, Sales Director at Total.
