Technology Products 2

Framework RM3733
Status: Active

This framework provides access to a wide range of IT hardware and software to all UK public sector customers. This replaces the previous Technology Products (RM1054) framework.

A wide variety of IT related product and software can be made available to you, including; tablets, PCs, laptops, servers, audio visual equipment and software licences. The framework can be accessed by an easy to use online catalogue (Lot 6) or for more complex requirements, further competitions can be run.
 

This framework features six lots:

Lot 1: Hardware - This lot is for the purchase of IT Hardware products such as tablets, laptops, PC’s, printers, servers, network equipment, telephones and audio visual products. If you would like to purchase software to work alongside your hardware, Lot 3 is recommended. This Lot is accessed via further competition only, where all suppliers should be invited to respond to your tender. Template documentation is available upon request.

Lot 2: Software - This lot is for the purchase of software for your devices. If you would like to purchase hardware to work alongside your software Lot 3 is recommended. This Lot is accessed via further competition only, where all suppliers should be invited to respond to your tender. Template documentation is available upon request.

Lot 3: Combined Hardware and Software Requirements - This Lot is for customers who have a combined requirement for IT hardware and software and want to purchase it from one supplier. Only suppliers who were awarded to both Lots 1 and 2 have been appointed to Lot 3. This Lot is accessed via further competition only, where all suppliers should be invited to respond to your tender. Template documentation is available upon request.

Lot 4 - Information Assured Products - This Lot is designed for use by customers who want to buy enhanced security products or dispose of highly sensitive or confidential information or assets safely and securely. Only suppliers who are compliant with CESG standards are featured on this Lot. This Lot is accessed via further competition only, where all suppliers should be invited to respond to your tender. Template documentation is available upon request.

Lot 5 - Volume Hardware Requirements - Lot 5 is right for you if you want to purchase large hardware requirements, typically around 500+ of an identical unit. Customers can contract directly with a manufacturer but further competitions should be completed according to your technical, generic requirements rather than for a specific product provided by a particular brand.

Lot 6 - Catalogue - This lot offers an extensive range of hardware and software products that can be purchased through an intuitive and modern online catalogue, for an easy and compliant direct award. This catalogue can be accessed by navigating to purchasingplatform.crowncommercial.gov.uk and registering for an account. A guide on how to use the online catalogue is available in the ‘Downloads’ section below.
