Leading IT technology reseller Misco UK has been awarded a place on four Lots of the NHS Link 2 Framework for the supply of IT hardware and services.
The agreement will see Misco UK supplying desktops, tablets, Green IT, printers and scanners to the NHS and other public sector organisations over the next 24 months.
NHS Shared Business Service (SBS) Members and Associate Members will benefit from the availability of a wide portfolio of IT and hardware solutions for both office and clinical environments specifically tailored to their needs.
Set up in 2004, NHS SBS, a joint venture between the Department of Health and Sopra Steria, has already delivered audited savings of almost £400m to NHS clients.
In addition, the sharing of costs for programme management and procurement support, as well as a collaborative approach, means that public sector organisations will experience further cost-savings and reduced prices.
With no need to run their own tendering process, trusts will enjoy a flexible framework that allows for ‘spot-buying’ as well as longer term strategic purchases, with assurance of supply for all IT hardware being covered under the agreement and fully OJEU compliant.
Lee Dutton, executive sales director at Misco, said: “This award across four Lots is the first time Misco has been on the UK’s largest NHS framework and underlines our commitment to supplying tailored services and solutions to NHS institutions across the country. The framework is designed to allow those within the public sector to maximise their investment in IT whilst benefiting from the best deals available to them. We look forward to helping these organisations increase their operational efficiency and reduce costs as we guide them in planning for the future of their IT estate.”
