Our National Fuels framework gives you access to a variety of solid and liquid fuels, including liquified gas, greases, lubricants and antifreeze.
We are running quarterly aggregated further competitions to deliver you the best prices, and recommend you consider joining the next aggregation if you have new requirements, or would like to add new sites to your existing arrangements for the start of the next financial year. By joining an aggregation you will benefit from an easy route to market, with options for both regional and national suppliers.
If you are interested in taking part in the first quarterly aggregation please get in touch – simply tick the aggregation box and quote RM3801 – National Fuels.
The deadline for site addition templates and additional terms is 1 March, and customers will be in a position to call-off from the framework from 2 April.
We are planning an aggregated further competition for IT hardware products, such as laptops, desktops, monitors and tablet devices, using lot 1 (hardware) of the Technology Products 2 (RM3733) framework for branded products and lot 5 (volume hardware requirements) for large volume brand agnostic requirements. Optional services, such as asset tagging and image build/load, may also be included, depending on interest.
Recent projects have achieved excellent price savings for customers, for example:
- Gloucestershire County Council saved over £500,000 on 2,000 laptops
- 95 schools saved an average of 36% on 2,200 tablets
To take part you will need to share your technical specifications by 9 March, and we expect the contract to be in place by early June. The competition will have a maximum contract term of 9 months. You will need to sign your contract with the successful supplier within 2 weeks of award, and delivery of products must take place within the 9 month term.

Mobile voice and data services
If you are interested in joining the next aggregated further competition under our Network Services (RM1045) framework for mobile voice and data services please get in touch before the end of April. It is anticipated that the contract will be in place in July, offering customers a high level of flexibility by:
- establishing a zero line rental model for basic connections, so you do not incur costs for lines not used
- structuring services as “bolt-ons” enabling you to build packages to suit your specific requirements and removing the restrictions of a “one size fits all” approach
- 30-day terms for “bolt-ons” so you can change your mix of services during the contract
Our last competition saved 17 customers over £2.7 million. Read more in this case study.
We run 3 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 (RM1070) framework. Any volume or vehicle type can be considered, and we can also help you if you want to lease rather than buy vehicles.
The closing date to get involved in the next eAuction is 23 May. The eAuction will be held at the start of July and orders will need to be placed within 3 months, with a typical delivery lead time of 12 weeks.
Automatic number plate recognition
Our Traffic Management Technology 2 (RM1089) framework covers automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) technology, and we are planning national aggregated further competitions for both police and car park ANPR.
