Lot 1 of Education Technology for ICT Solutions is now live for schools

Schools and multi-academy trusts can now use lot 1 of Education Technology for ICT Solutions to access specialist suppliers that provide fully or partially managed ICT services.

The new framework, developed in collaboration with the Department for Education, will help you buy a broad range of technologies and services. It replaces ICT Services for Education.

Lot 1: ICT Solutions

Choose lot 1 as a single route to market to help you save time and money. It is ideal if you are looking for an ICT refresh or a complete new build solution. Benefits include:

  • Easy to use templates and guidance to help you on your procurement journey
  • Choose from 21 suppliers including 17 SMEs
  • Exceptional value for money with competitive product pricing 
  • Access to suppliers with the knowledge, skills and capability to innovate and deliver in a modern digital learning environment

Get started

You will need to run a further competition to find the best supplier to develop the solutions and/or services you need to meet your specific requirements. 

Our customer guidance will help you get started on your procurement journey, and you can also explore lot 1 in more detail on the framework page

Coming soon 

Four more lots will also be available later in the summer:

  1. Broadband fibre infrastructure
  2. Broadband services
  3. Hardware 
  4. Audio visual 

We’ll be running webinars once these lots are live, so look out for further details shortly. If you are interested in attending let us know via the online form below – just mention ‘Ed Tech webinar’ in the comments box.
