Suppliers who have accepted the contract variation are listed in the Supplier Matrix on the ‘Documents’ tab below.

Find out more about what CCS did to get ready for GDPR.

Savings

We have developed a benefits methodology to capture and measure savings.

With a good selection of suppliers in each lot, you will also achieve best value for money and demonstrable savings through the further competition or catalogue processes. 

Suppliers are required to provide transparency in invoicing to allow you to see clearly the cost of products and the cost of logistics. This data will allow you to directly compare the price of products and understand the price implications of your buying practices.

In order to achieve the best price through the catalogue, a smart basket function has been built to meet the “direct award on price” evaluation. Although you will see a list of the  supplier prices which match your search, you will only be allowed to buy each product at the lowest price (depending on stock availability).
