Framework 376E
Status: Active

Our Books, E-Books and related materials framework (376E) offers flexibility and convenience for anyone requiring books, e-books, DVDs, CDs, and other related products.

Our Books, E-Books and related materials framework (376E) offers flexibility and convenience for anyone requiring books, e-books, DVDs, CDs, and other related products. Featuring an extensive list of products and genres, Framework 376 offers a ‘one stop shop’ where you can pick up all your requirements in one place and still achieve value for money (with over a 40% discount on selected titles). Differing discounts and deals are also available from some of the trusted and preapproved suppliers on this framework. 
The framework is split into the following four lots;

  • Lot 1 - Fiction Books – reading books, etc.
  • Lot 2 - Curriculum Books – non-fiction textbooks, revision guides, dictionaries, reading scheme sets, etc. used in schools and colleges by students.
  • Lot 3 - Reference, General and Other Related Materials – reference books, general non-fiction books and also materials such as CDs and DVDs.
  • Lot 4 - E-Books, including e-audio – suppliers to this lot provide e-books/e-audio and the systems required to manage and view them. This lot is sub-divided into supplier who cater for the education sector and suppliers who cater for public libraries.

The framework is available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Schools & Academies
  • Local Authority Establishments
  • Police & Emergency Services
  • NHS & HSC Bodies
  • Central Government Departments & their agencies
  • Registered Charities
