The impacts of Covid-19 have been felt across most supply chains and the provision of ICT hardware has been no exception. Here at CPC we want to keep you up to date with the latest information and have published stock availability for the products on the framework.  This can be found on the ICT Hardware & Peripherals Equipment framework page along with new guidance on how to use the CPC Leasing Framework in conjunction with the ICT Hardware framework, should you be wishing to lease rather than purchase IT equipment.

The CPC ICT Hardware and Peripherals Equipment Framework Agreement can be used to purchase remanufactured equipment, bespoke equipment, new technologies, imaging services, maintenance services, plus other relevant services including asset tagging and training & support for all solutions.

There are 5 lots on the framework, of which there are 20 very keen and knowledgeable suppliers, supplying a wide range of products.

Benefits of the new agreement include:

  • A vast product and manufacturer range including but not limited to brands such as Dell, Stone, Apple, HP and Lenovo
  • Direct Award and Further/Mini Competition options available
  • Ease of use with additional tools including a Desktop and Mini Competition Calculator
  • User guide and template documentation
  • A multi-purpose lot to save time and resource

We are delighted to report that in the last month alone, over 70% of those that have completed the survey after using the ICT Hardware framework are recording they have made a saving and 100% would recommend the framework to others.

Visit the framework web page to find out more and to access the user guide.

Should you have any queries or require any further information please do contact the ICT Category Manager at CPC, Jane Edwards on j.edwards@thecpc.ac.uk or 0161 823 1860.
