Technology Products 2 Framework Launched by ESPO, Crown Commercial Service and YPO

11 Nov 2016 03:24 PM

We are proud to announce the launch of the Technology Products 2 framework (RM3733), created in collaboration between ESPO, Crown Commercial Service, and YPO.

This framework provides access to a range of IT hardware and software, for use by any UK government or public sector customers. A wide variety of IT related products are available, including tablets, PCs, laptops, servers, audio visual equipment and software licences.

This framework offers the following advantages over the previous Technology Products framework (RM1054):

  • A new online catalogue (Lot 6);
  • Supplier margin caps on both hardware and software to ensure best value for customers;
  • A clearer lot structure;
  • Improved choice of suppliers, each vetted on their vendor accreditation and partnership levels;
  • Access to flash sales and aggregated e-auctions;
  • Pre-agreed terms and conditions to underpin all orders and provide peace of mind.


Available Lots

  • Lot 1: Hardware - the purchase of items such as tablets, laptops, PC’s, printers, servers, network equipment, telephones and audio visual products.
  • Lot 2: Software - the purchase of software for your devices.
  • Lot 3: Combined Hardware and Software Requirements - for customers who have a combined requirement for IT hardware and software and want to purchase it from one supplier.
  • Lot 4: Information Assured Products - enhanced security products or dispose of highly sensitive or confidential information or assets safely and securely. All suppliers are compliant with CESG standards.
  • Lot 5: Volume Hardware Requirements – the purchase of large volumes of hardware, typically around 500+ of each item.
  • Lot 6: Catalogue - an extensive range of hardware and software products that can be purchased through an easy to use online catalogue, via a direct award. The online catalogue is expected to go live in early 2017.
