Payroll services – aggregate demand for a better deal

Crown Commercial Service (CCS) will be running a programme of 3  national further competitions for payroll services which could help you save time and money by aggregating your demand with other public sector organisations.

Did you know that joining forces with multiple purchasers increases your buying power? CCS offers a complimentary aggregation service for customers, whereby we  take a volume requirement to market following a standard process which encourages better pricing from bidders, resulting in greater savings for the customer.

What we’re going to tender for

The requirement will be for payroll software and services – essentially fully managed payroll services – covering (but not limited to) processing of payslips, reporting to HMRC, BACS transmission and approved pensions administration.

The result will be individual contracts for each participating customer based on their requirements (you can even have your own special terms in your own contract) with an initial term of 5 years and options to extend for a further +1yr and another +1 yr. 

How can you get involved?

We’re currently gathering interest from customers for the first payroll aggregated procurement which is scheduled to complete mid-march 2020.  

Allowing time for critical post award transition and implementation (including parallel runs), this first aggregation could suit any public body that needs a solution up and running by October 2020 onward.

A second aggregation for payroll services will follow for delivery in January 2021, then a third for delivery in January 2022.

If you’d like to find out more, please complete our online form quoting ‘Payroll Services Aggregation’ by no later than mid September if you’re interested in the first aggregation.  

We look forward to hearing from you.
