Procurement Made Simple
The following frameworks enable public sector organisations to purchase market leading solutions and services without the need for a procurement exercise (i.e. tender, mini-competition etc). Each framework body has undertaken formal tenders for each of the available technology and service categories so that only reputable suppliers and manufacturers can be used on these frameworks.
To ensure the public sector receives the best possible price models, all solution discounts have been negotiated sector-wide so that hospitals, with any budget restrictions, can purchase these solutions at preferential prices. KHIPU are on the following “direct award” frameworks:
- Jisc Network Equipment Framework – Lot 7 Palo Alto Networks (Top ranked supplier)
- NHS Shared Business Services IT Link 2 Framework
- G-Cloud 11
