Dynabook re-awarded leading position on NDNA framework

Dynabook UK has announced its successful selection for the provision of client PC hardware and related services to the National Desktop and Notebook Agreement (NDNA). Under the NDNA framework, Dynabook will be working directly with its current partner, Stone Group, while also forming two new partnerships with IT providers, SCC and Insight.

After 15 years on the tender, Dynabook has secured its spot once again on the NDNA framework. Following a competitive and rigorous process involving technical product testing, Dynabook has been awarded a position on the three-year framework, which began on the 1st November 2022, with an option for a single-year extension to 31st October 2026.

The NDNA framework, which is managed by the London Universities Purchasing Consortium (LUPC), allows members within the Higher Education sector, and associated public sector organisations throughout the UK, to purchase a range of Desktop and Notebook PCs, in addition to associated services. Dynabook’s award for both the provision of Notebook PC’s (Lot 2) and the leading position of ‘One-Stop Shop’ (Lot 3) with partner Stone Group, will enable universities and affiliated colleges in the UK with the option to select Dynabook as a leading supplier.

Dawn Henderson, Education Sales Lead at Dynabook Europe GmbH said, “We’re thrilled to have achieved a place on the framework for the National Desktop and Notebook Agreement once again. The NDNA framework provides Dynabook with an opportunity to give education institutions access to the very best technology so that admin staff, lecturers and students are better equipped, whether it is in lecture theatres or hybrid working environments. Through the NDNA framework, our partnerships with Stone, SCC, and Insight are an essential part of how we continue to fulfil our ongoing commitment to offering the education sector carefully engineered, reliable, secure, and robust devices.”   

Under the NDNA agreement, Dynabook will be supplying universities across the UK via Stone Group, Insight, and SCC with thousands of mobile devices, giving customers the choice and flexibility of entry-level laptops through to high-level devices. The four main Dynabook mobile devices that will be rolled out to UK universities include the 13.3-inch Portégé X30L, 14-inch Portégé X40W, 14-inch Tecra A40, and 15-inch Tecra A50.

Antony Mellor, Sales Director, Tertiary Education & Public Sector Framework Lead at Stone Group added, “Stone is really pleased to be partnering once again with Dynabook on the NDNA framework, for the supply of mobile devices on Lot 2. It is a partnership that has worked well on the previous NDNA agreements, and we look forward to strengthening the position we hold together, maintaining our joint approach of providing high-quality End User Devices with a strong Value Add and Service proposition. Dynabook has proven to be a trusted partner over many years, and Stone looks forward to continuing to grow our business, through the new framework. In addition to the Lot 2 partnership, we are in the enviable position of being First Ranked Supplier on Lot 3, where the ‘One Stop Shop’ approach enables Stone and Dynabook to work directly with institutions to enable a simple route-to-market for hassle-free and compliant procurement.”
