INTEGRELLA, a specialist IT integration company based in London, has been approved as a Crown Commercial Services (CCS) supplier. The CCS works on behalf of the public sector to save money for the public sector and the taxpayer.
Integrella provides consulting, project delivery execution, specialist resource provisioning, long term support and fully managed services, and will continue to tender for opportunities within the UK public sector. We have a strong track record in the public sector – you can see our case studies here.
CCS have determined that bringing Digital Services live in the UK public sector needs specialised skill sets that cannot be easily defined in a shopping guide such as GCloud. So they brought out a new framework called Digital Services – Outcomes and Specialists. This framework will enable unique individual projects to be serviced quickly from a group of selected professional services and consulting suppliers. Integrella has been approved as a supplier and is very pleased to to be making services more accessible to public sector buyers.
By using CCS agreements, customers can buy commonly used goods and services quickly and cost effectively whilst complying with EU and UK procurement regulations. CCS is playing a vital role in helping to protect front line services by delivering significant and sustainable cost savings through its commercial activity and aggregated procurement arrangements:
- Using this agreement will help CCS deliver savings for the public sector and the taxpayer by aggregating spend to drive best value.
- The agreement is fully EU compliant, saving customers the time and money associated with conducting their own procurement exercise.
- Through the competitive tender process and regular benchmarking, CCS ensures customers have access to the most competitive deals.
- Suppliers are carefully evaluated during the tender process and pre-agreed terms and conditions offer customers sound contractual safeguards.
CCS agreements cover communications services, construction, eCommerce, energy, fleet, technology, office solutions, print, professional services (including temporary labour), property and facilities management, research and travel.
When new product or service needs are identified, or when an existing arrangement needs renewing, the CCS follows a formal process to ensure the EU Procurement Directives are met. Tender opportunities are advertised in the Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU).
