10th Oct 2018


Following a comprehensive OJEU tendering exercise and a stringent evaluation, CPC are delighted to award the Stationery and Education Supplies framework to Banner.

CPC weighted the competition at 60% price and 40% quality, assessing over 1200 lines, and over 40 qualitative service essentials. The framework commenced on 1 October 2018 for two years with an option to extend for a further 2 x 12-month periods.

The framework is split into two lots:

Lot 1 - Stationery (FE Colleges, Academy Trusts & Universities)

Lot 1 will include but is not limited to: Office Stationery, including pens, pencils, desktop accessories, filing products, notebooks and diaries etc.

Lot 2 - One Stop Shop Schools & Academies

Lot 2 will be a one stop shop covering a wide range of products to incorporate all Education Supplies requirements for Schools & Academies. This lot will include but is not limited to small quantities of Copier Paper, Arts & Crafts supplies, Electronic Office Supplies and Computer Consumables, including Ink and Toner print cartridges, Cleaning & Janitorial materials, Sundries and all your Stationery requirements.

We are confident that CPC members will be delighted with both the service proposition and pricing on offer from Banner, which, when compared to a basket of items containing almost 1200 lines on a like for like basis shows direct savings of more than 22% over the two lots.

Benefits of this new framework include:

  • One catalogue, one contact, one purchase order, one invoice – using Banner is easy and takes less time away from your institutions teaching hours
  • You can buy at the most competitive prices, making your budget stretch further
  • Quick and efficient next day delivery on orders placed by 4pm – no waiting for your parcel to arrive
  • Enjoy a direct line to a dedicated account management team rather than an anonymous call centre.
  • Support and assistance from the CPC Contract Manager and a framework specific User Guide

A full core price list will be available on the Banner web page on the CPC website soon.
