Procurement Assist’s new ground breaking easy to access, easy to award, and easy to save money Office Administration framework agreement launched today.

The 4 year agreement, covers all aspects of office administration products, janitorial supplies, workwear, and PPE and is open for the whole of the UK public sector to use.

“The framework agreement has undergone a rigorous PCR procurement process and we are pleased to announce that a number of well known brands have been awarded a place on the framework” explains Procurement Assists CEO Keith Armstrong.

The framework is structured into 5 Lots, A to C are specific to product category supply, and two further Lots D and E – which are designed to accommodate the new ways of working that clients have adopted since the outbreak of Covid-19 – including the provision of fully managed office, and home office solutions. Both of which can be tailored to each client’s specific requirements.

“Product sustainability and supply were key factors in the selection process” explains Keith. “Given the challenges in global supply chains, availability is key, and supplier performance will be closely monitored. Using our 20 years’ experience, we wanted to ensure that not only can clients use the agreement in just a few simple steps, they have the added assurance that the ongoing administration of the framework will keep it up to date with any market changes.”
The framework is structured so that each supplier is ranked on each Lot, with clients having the option to Direct Award, or conduct a Mini Competition. Lots D and E have sole supply – and as with the other lots direct awards can be quickly and easily made.

With fixed pricing, annual core product ranges, and 6 monthly pricing reviews, the framework is designed to stay ahead of the times and remain competitive in the marketplace for the next 4 years. Supplier performance will also be monitored quarterly, ensuring that clients always receive the levels of service they expect.

“The Procurement Assist team is on hand to guide current and future clients through the straightforward process of accessing the framework agreement.”
Keith added “The new framework is one of, if not the most competitive PCR Compliant Office Administration solution currently available to the Public Sector and I would challenge any organisation to benchmark not only the pricing, but also the service too.”
