Lot No: 4 Lot title: User Devices

1)Short description

The targeted suppliers will be Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM). Suppliers will be limited to supplying their own branded end-user devices. As the Contracting Authority acting on behalf of central government departments (and their arms length bodies) the Contracting Authority seeks to aggregate and leverage saving via regular eAuctions. This lot seeks the provision of client user devices (any form factor) that will include (but not be limited to) desktop bundles, laptops, tablet/slates, thin-client devices and hybrid devices. There will be no service requirement within this lot except the occasional delivery fulfilment or services that can be delivered during the commodity build process. For the purpose of this lot, End User Computing Devices are defined as commodity hardware products such as desktop, laptop, thin client, tablet, server etc. The key requirement will be the ability to supply large volumes of end user computing devices over a planned deployment period. The Contracting Authority intends to run aggregated further competitions under this lot on behalf of Public Sector entities and seeks a number of suppliers to provide end user computing devices. GPS intends to manage call-offs centrally on behalf of Central Government and these call-offs are likely to take the form of regular e-auctions and other volume committed procurements. The Contracting Authority will likely require that products are supplied ‘bare’ of all services and may even seek to source its own logistics from alternative sources.

Potential suppliers should note that, in accordance with the UK Government’s policies on transparency, Crown Commercial Service intends to publish the Invitation to Tender (ITT) document and the text of any Framework Agreement awarded, subject to possible redactions at the discretion of Crown Commercial Service.

Further information on transparency can be found at:

http://ccs.cabinetoffice.gov.uk/about-government-procurement-service/transparency-and-accountability/transparency-procurement

The Contracting Authority expressly reserves the right (i) not to award any contract as a result of the procurement process commenced by publication of this notice; and (ii) to make whatever changes it may see fit to the content and structure of the tendering competition; and in no circumstances will the Contracting Authority be liable for any costs incurred by the candidates. If the Contracting Authority decides to enter into a Framework Agreement with the successful supplier, this does not mean that there is any guarantee of subsequent contracts being awarded. Any expenditure, work or effort undertaken prior to contract award is accordingly a matter solely for the commercial judgement of potential suppliers. Any orders placed under this Framework Agreement will form a separate contract under the scope of this Framework between the supplier and the specific requesting other contracting body. The Contracting Authority and other contracting bodies utilising the Framework reserve the right to use any electronic portal during the life of the agreement.
The duration referenced in Section II.1.4 is for the placing of orders.
The value provided in Section II.1.4 is only an estimate. We cannot guarantee to suppliers any business through this framework agreement.
