National Procurement Service framework updates.
We have recently run 2 category forum focus groups, one in south and one in north Wales. During the meetings we updated members on the latest framework guidance. We will be publishing full outcome reports on the meetings on Sell2Wales soon.
Business travel and accommodation
This framework ends in October this year but customers will be able to continue using travel management services through an agreement with Gray Dawes (formerly CTM) until April 2020. We will make a decision on the longer term arrangements for business travel and accommodation soon.
Temporary workers and supply teachers
This framework has been awarded and lots 1 – 4 for corporate workers is available to use. Guidance, pricing and supplier details are available on Sell2Wales, with the framework offering various supply models for procuring temporary workers via direct award or further competition mechanisms.
Lot 5 for supply teachers goes live on 1 August 2019 in time for the new academic year. We are finalising the guidance and pricing for this and will issue it shortly.
