Scottish Government Ready to Spend £45m on IT Consumables

The Scottish government is seeking an IT supplier to provide it with up to £45 million (US$63.5 million) worth of computer consumables.

The government launched the Framework Agreement for the Supply of IT Consumables back on September 1, 2012, and it is due to expire on August 31st, 2016. The next version of the framework was released by the publication of a tender document by the Scottish government last weekend.

According to the framework, a range of toner and ink cartridges, CDs, DVDs, flash-storage and memory devices will be purchased, worth between £35m (US$49 million) and £45 million over four years.

The tender document states, “The framework Agreement is for the provision of IT consumables including delivery to framework public bodies’ premises and associated service elements,” with further mention that the central government, fire, health, local authorities, police, education institutes, the third sector and other public bodies are capable of using such kit. The supplier on the previous framework was the Bradford based firm—Spectrum Computer Supplies.
