Help us evaluate our new Education Technology Framework

We are renewing our bespoke technology solution for Education (ICT Services for Education – RM1050). We have engaged with schools, academies, Multi Academy Trusts (MATs), the Department for Education (DfE) and the Education and Skills Funding Agency (EFSA) to help develop the specification.

CCS will shortly be issuing the contract notice and are making preparations for the evaluation stage. To enable us to ensure our suppliers meet the needs of schools and academies, we would like to invite you to get involved in the evaluation process and would greatly appreciate your help and support.

Those who are able to support us in the evaluation will gain a wider understanding of commercial processes and the market response to government.

Requirements

To be involved there is no specific background knowledge of CCS required, we are looking for those with a knowledge of technology needs within a school for hardware and/or audio-visual systems.

The Process

Evaluator Training – This will take an hour and it will be done during the tender period (December) at a time that suits you.

Evaluation period –  This is currently planned for mid January 2019, the exact amount of time and specific dates needed will depend on the number of bidders and final bid period however; we are anticipating we will require roughly 20 hours over a 4 week period.

Consensus – Selection and Award will be conducted at the same time and is separate to the independent evaluation time.
