IT reseller Softcat has won a place on Crown Commercial Service’s new Technology Online Purchasing Content, Europe’s largest public sector IT catalogue worth an estimated £500 million.
Replacing Lot 6 on the Technology Products 2 framework, which expires at the end of October 2021, the catalogue enables public sector customers to purchase off-the-shelf hardware and software from private vendors without having to go through a lengthy procurement process.
Softcat Contract Manager Andy Bruen said: “This framework win will enable us to continue our successful engagement with customers in the UK public sector. In the last four years Softcat and our customers saw real value from the Technology Products catalogue. With this new Technology Online Purchasing Catalogue we intend to do better still. Our new dedicated catalogue manager will be working to ensure that Softcat proactively continues to add the products and value that customers require.”
