In order to do this, CCS implements and manages a range of procurement frameworks. There are several IT-related frameworks, on which trusted suppliers are awarded a place. Public sector organisations can then use these frameworks to run their procurement simply and efficiently, only giving access to those suppliers who can offer the best value and quality.
