Aggregation opportunity for education customers

The Crown Commercial Service (CCS) is working in collaboration with the Department for Education (DfE) to run a national further competition (NFC69) to help education organisations with the purchase of chromebooks, laptops and desktops.

The aggregation opportunity is available to all publicly funded education customers, including maintained schools, academies, university technical colleges (UTCs) and free schools.

Aggregating requirements from multiple education organisations across the country leads to larger volumes, which encourages suppliers offer significant discounts, which in turn creates value for money for the education sector.

This aggregated further competition will be competed under lot 1 of the Technology Products 2 (RM3733) framework agreement.


A recording of a webinar, aimed specifically at the schools sector, explains in further detail the process, timescales and the benefits of aggregation.
