Is your business looking to purchase IT hardware such as laptops, desktops, or mobile handsets over a call off period longer than 12 months? Why not join our latest aggregation which could help save your organisation time and money.
Why get involved?
Bringing together requirements from multiple organisations across the country leads to larger volumes. This encourages suppliers to offer significant discounts, which in turn delivers better value for money.

We run a series of vehicle eAuctions a year as by combining customer requirements we can help organisations make great savings on the whole life costs of vehicles – whether you need 1 or 1,000. We do this by using standardised vehicle specifications and our bulk buying power to make your requirements more attractive to suppliers, meaning customers can save as much as 40% on manufacturer’s retail price. Our eAuctions are run under lots 1 and 2 of the Vehicle Purchase framework. Any volume or vehicle type can be considered, and we can also help you if you want to lease rather than buy vehicles.

Following the success of CCS led aggregated further competitions for Water, we will be running another further competition for Lot 1 – Water and Wastewater supply at the end of April.
