Simon Toplass, CEO at Pagabo, said: “We are delighted by the amount of interest there has been for this iteration of the ICT Solutions Framework, and the providers selected reflect the quality of the applications received.
“It is a big challenge for schools and other educational bodies to find reliable suppliers and deliver value for money, all while going through a fully-compliant and transparent procurement procedure. With this framework, we make the whole process simple and efficient.”
To be considered for Pagabo’s ICT Solutions Framework, providers were required to go through a rigorous OJEU compliant tender process, prove strong finances and relevant experience. As well as this, providers on Pagabo frameworks are required to share the company’s passion for social value and technology.
Simon continued: “As a company that is dedicated to using technology to simplify the procurement process, the ICT Solutions framework forms a crucial part of the Pagabo ecosystem. From the applications received it’s clear to see that our innovative way of working and our commitment to social value is continuing to drive our success.”
The ICT Solutions framework is now active and will run for three years with an option to extend for a further year.
