Banner has announced that following a formal OJEU tender exercise, Crown Commercial Services (CCS) has awarded Banner a place on the Lot 2 Office and Electronic Office Supplies Framework Agreement.
Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. In 2018/19, CCS helped the public sector to achieve commercial benefits worth £945m – supporting public services that offer best value for taxpayers.
Banner says it has worked strategically with the Public Sector for many years and has managed this and other product categories to ensure value for money and socially responsible solutions, while being efficient and effective, in line with the CCS strategy. This has included support and solutions from Banner to meet the Government-wide aim to eliminate avoidable consumer single-use plastics in Government estate offices.
This new contract is now open to but not limited to, Central Government Departments, NHS Bodies, Local Authorities, Emergency Services, Charities and Educational Establishments who have a requirement for office products.
Craig Varey, Managing Director at Banner, comments: “I am very proud of the dedicated CCS team at Banner who have demonstrated their expertise and professionalism to secure a place on this new Framework. I’m confident that our account management team will be as successful at increasing the number of organisations joining and benefitting from the added value that this new agreement offers the UK Public Sector.”
