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.
Technology Hardware for Schools 2 (NFC69) will be competed under lot 1 of the Technology Products 2 (RM3733) framework agreement.
Process to get involved
You will need to complete the customer requirement template (currently in development), which will be made available on this webpage when finalised. This then needs to be returned to firstname.lastname@example.org by 29 September 2017.
Please be aware that by returning a completed template you are committing your organisation to purchasing the devices at the end of the process.
The project timeline is for delivery before the end of the financial year:

- invitation to tender 9 October
- formal award 3 November
- order and delivery from 3 November
These dates above are indicative and may be subject to change.
A recording of a webinar, aimed specifically at the schools sector, explains in further detail the process, timescales and the benefits of aggregation.
If you are not in a position to participate at this stage, we regularly run aggregated procurements for technology hardware, and other common commodity goods and services. See our procurement pipeline
