Are you looking to buy Chromebooks, laptops or desktops for your learning environment soon? Perhaps even whiteboards, projectors or interactive screens? We’re running our fourth national further competition to bring together multiple education organisations’ requirement for IT Hardware equipment, which encourages suppliers to offer significant discounts, and in turn creates value for money for the education sector.
So far we have helped 69 education customers save a total of £207,000 on technology hardware.

We are considering running a series of aggregated procurements for payroll services commencing in March 2019 if enough interest is expressed.
At this early stage, we are seeking initial expressions of interest and indications of your ‘must have’ requirements, so if you would like to express interest in joining an aggregation and shaping the requirement, please complete this short survey. The survey should take no more than 10 minutes.

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. To find out more about getting involved please get in touch – simply tick the aggregation box and quote Fleet eAuctions.
